Nova Scotia Extends Consultation on Product Stewardship and EPR
Posted by GlobalPSC on GlobalPSC Advisory Group at 10:54 am, July 10th, 2014Comments0
The GlobalPSC has gotten confirmation from Nova Scotia authorities that they are extending their consultations on approaches that include a product stewardship /extended producer responsibility (EPR) framework across a wide range of products.
Nova Scotia has flagged possible product stewardship / EPR for 24 product categories as part of proposed changes to the provincial solid waste regulations. Consultation is now open until 1 August 2014.
The GlobalPSC sought members’ views on the proposed Nova Scotia changes and is finalising a submission in consultation with our newly formed Advisory Group. Similarly, the GlobalPSC provided a submission to the New Zealand Ministry for Environment on behalf of our members in response to a discussion paper on prioritising particular products for product stewardship. The New Zealand response is available in the Knowledge Base available to GlobalPSC members, under the Frameworks & Harmonisation tab.Tags: #productstewardship, Asia Pacific, consultation, Global Product Stewardship Council, GlobalPSC, GlobalPSC Advisory Group, Ministry, New Zealand, North America, Nova Scotia, product stewardship
