Product Clarification

Product Clarification ButtonThe Minister's Program Request Letter designated 44 items as obligated electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) under Regulation 393/04 to be managed by the Ontario Electronic Stewardship Program. For reporting efficiency, OES divided the 44 materials into eight categories with appropriate sub-categories as shown in Table 2.1 (extracted from the Program Plan, page 25).

Most of the obligated electronics are listed below, however a comprehensive list of product definitions, obligated electronics and material product clarification communicated to stewards/remitters/sub-remitters is available on the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) web site.
