1. This Regulation determines certain parameters of the compensation regime under subdivision 4.1 of Division VII of Chapter I of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) whose purpose, together with other legislative measures ensuring residual materials management, is to prevent and reduce the impact of residual materials on the environment.
More specifically, this Regulation designates the materials or classes of materials to which the compensation regime applies and determines the calculation method and the performance and efficiency criteria used to determine the annual compensation.
The Regulation also provides a minimum framework for the schedule of contributions that must be established pursuant to section 53.31.14 of the Act by establishing exemptions for certain persons in respect of certain materials and by targeting the persons that alone may be required to pay contributions in respect of certain materials.
The Regulation also determines the indemnity payable to the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage by the persons to whom the compensation regime applies, and related payment terms and conditions.
