Entry into force of the 2022 Schedule of Contributions
The 2022 Schedule of Contributions (SoC) was published today on July 13, 2022 in the Gazette officielle du Québec by Order of the minister. This publication marks the official opening of the 60-day reporting period.
Targeted companies have until September 13, 2022 to report the containers, packaging and printed matter marketed during the 2021 calendar year in Quebec.
For full payment calendar details, see the deadlines for your obligations.
Retirement of Eco-D
After many years of loyal service, our Eco-D reporting portal took a well-deserved retirement on April 29!
After a short transition period, a breath of fresh air allowed ÉEQ to better meet the needs of contributing companies. A brand-new reporting portal is now fully functional and ready to take over.
You will receive an email with an invitation code and instructions on how to log in to the new reporting portal. Since your Eco-D access code is no longer valid, you will need to create a new user account.
New terms and conditions apply for the 2022 SoC, including:
- Obligation of operators of transactional websites, with or without a place of business in Quebec and whose products are acquired by e-commerce
- Containers and packaging of wood and cork must now be reported
- Polypropylene containers (plastic #5), which must now be reported separately from other plastics and polymers
Renewal of the bonus
The ecodesign incentive bonus pilot project is back! Launched in 2021 to recognize and reward companies’ efforts in the ecodesign of containers and packaging, the 2022 edition has been improved.
The application form has been simplified to facilitate the process and the available bonus has been revised upwards. Companies that have put ecodesigned containers and packaging on the market in 2021 could therefore benefit from a credit of up to $60,000 on their annual contribution.
Join the webinar on August 25 at 2:00 p.m. to learn all about bonus principles and familiarize yourself with the application form.
Other terms and conditions apply. Visit the bonus page to see if your process is eligible.
