category
Home theatre image, audio and
video equipment sold as a
package/ bundle with more than a
single point-of-sale SKU (report
each product separately)
The obligated products listed here as “subject to the EHF” can be returned and recycled free of charge
at any EPRA-Québec drop-off points.
The associated Environmental Handling Fees (EHF) are included in the cost of the product.
Multiple products combined in a single Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
package with a unique SKU are subject to one EHF.
NOTES:
1. Products included/excluded are examples based upon member inquiries but do not represent an exhaustive list of all obligated products by category.
Members must assess products against the definitions of each obligated product category to determine the applicability and appropriate EHF, and may
consult the program for assistance in clarification where required.
2. Products identified as “Included in the Obligated Category” are subject to the EHF for that category; Products identified as “Not Included in the Obligated
Category are not subject to the EHF for that category, however, members must consider all obligated product categories to determine if the product
meets the definition of another obligated product category.

Revision: July 19, 2013
3. In selected cases, selected products such as cables, connectors, chargers and remote controls, memory cards and USB keys are regulated and will be accepted
for recycling at EPRA Québec depots, but do not attract an EHF.
4.
Electronic equipment designed and intended to be used exclusively in an industrial, commercial or institutional (ICI) setting which exceed a unit weight
threshold of 120 kilograms shall be excluded from the program.
5. There are two instances where multiple obligated products may be packaged by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in a single physical package
carrying a single SKU (stock-keeping unit) and be subject to one EHF for the entire package of products:
a) Where the product definition above specifically includes multiple obligated products, or
b) Where a product is comprised of different functional components that are sometimes sold separately, but in this case are integrate
into a single operating unit. In this instance, the integrated product carries the single highest EHF.; Examples include :
 Display device with integrated video player (DVD, VCR, Blu-ray, etc.)
 Printer / Scanner / Fax (all-in-ones)
 Fax machine with a corded telephone handset
 Telephone with built-in answering machine
6. Floor-standing equipment should only include equipment which is integrated, and which cannot easily be broken down by the end-user for recycling
(e.g. a mainframe). Floor-standing equipment is not considered one unit under the program if the equipment is comprised of easily-removable subcomponents. If the latter is the case, the rack or frame containing the equipment is excluded and the individual sub-components are covered in
categories above as individual/multiple units.
7. In order to clarify the application of Section 3 of the Regulation respecting the recovery and reclamation of products by enterprises with regard to the
obligations of companies who market non-covered products with a covered component, the MDDEFP will endeavour to “focus obligations on
products intended for the general public that are more likely to be brought in to authorized program facilities, that constitute significant market
segments and that are more likely to contribute to attaining recovery objectives set in the EPR Regulation.” (Editor’s note: Unofficial translation)
In the case of electronics, that means the following electronics covered by the Regulation are excluded:
 Non-covered products that include a covered component, regardless of whether or not they are designed and exclusively intended for industrial,
commercial and institutional (ICI) use.
9
Revision: July 19, 2013
 Electronic components embedded in a personal or recreational transportation vehicle that are specifically designed for a given model, that are
factory-installed and are part of the vehicle in that they are not easily removed.
 However, electronics designed for these types of vehicles but sold separately from the vehicle (after-market) are considered covered
products.
For more information, see the MDDEFP’s letter as well as the Ministère’s reply to the following question of the FAQs on its website (in French only):
1.3 Qu’est-ce qu’un produit mis en marché en tant que composant d’un autre produit? (how should a product marketed as a component of another
product be handled?)
8. The list of Product Definitions and Clarifications may be revised periodically by the Program.
