The MOECC has amended Ontario Regulation 455/09 under the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009. The amendments came into effect on April 23, 2018.

The following updates have been made to the regulations:

  • The plan cycle has been extended by a year making the first compliance period six years. All plan renewals are now due on December 31, 2019.
  • The second cycle is cut back to four years making the second compliance deadline December 31, 2023.
  • Following the 2023 calendar year, all Toxic Reduction Plans TRA plans are due every five years.
  • Facilities are only required to include the previous year's TRA accounting records when a revised plan is created.

The MOECC has improved the alignment of the TRA program with the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) with this amendment.

If you have any questions or concerns about TRA plans or require Trinity's assistance, please feel free to contact Suzy Sabanathan at (416) 391-2527 ext. 22.
