Part 2                 Liable parties and administrators of co‑regulatory arrangements

Division 2.1           Liable parties

2.01        Liable parties — classes of persons

         (1)   For subsection 19 (1) of the Act, this Division specifies the classes of persons who are liable parties in relation to the classes of products.

Liable parties for television class

         (2)   A person is in the class of persons who are liable parties in relation to the television class for a financial year if the person, in that financial year:

                (a)    is a constitutional corporation; and

               (b)    satisfies the criterion in regulation 2.02 as it relates to the television class.

Liable parties for computer class

         (3)   A person is in the class of persons who are liable parties in relation to the computer class for a financial year if the person, in that financial year:

                (a)    is a constitutional corporation; and

               (b)    satisfies the criterion in regulation 2.02 as it relates to the computer class.

2.02        Criterion — import or manufacture products in previous financial year

         (1)   To satisfy this criterion for a financial year, the person must have imported into, or manufactured in, Australia in the previous financial year more than the number of products specified in subregulation (2) for the class of products.

Example

The person imports 3 000 televisions into Australia and manufactures 2 500 televisions in Australia. The person will satisfy the criterion in this regulation.

         (2)   For subregulation (1), the numbers are:

                (a)    for the television class — 5 000 units of televisions; and

               (b)    for the computer class:

                          (i)    5 000 units of computers or printers; or

                         (ii)    15 000 units of computer products.

         (3)   For this regulation, a product is taken to be imported into Australia if:

                (a)    the product is the subject of an import declaration under section 71A of the Customs Act 1901; and

               (b)    the product has been entered for home consumption under paragraph 68 (3A) (a) of that Act.

Related bodies corporate

         (4)   Subregulation (5) does not apply in relation to computer products.

         (5)   For this regulation, a person is taken to have imported or manufactured a unit of products in the class of products in the previous financial year if:

                (a)    a related body corporate of the person imported or manufactured the unit in the previous financial year; and

               (b)    the person imported or manufactured more than 1 000 units of products in the class of products in the previous financial year.

Examples

1        A person imports 2 500 computers into Australia and a related body corporate of the person manufactures 3 000 printers in Australia. The person will satisfy the criterion in this regulation.

2        A person imports 900 televisions into Australia and a related body corporate of the person imports 5 000 televisions into Australia. The person will not satisfy the criterion in this regulation.

2.03        Ongoing obligation to be a liable party

         (1)   This regulation applies if, for a financial year:

                (a)    a person is in a class of persons who are liable parties in relation to a class of products; and

               (b)    the person is not a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement in relation to the class of products.

Note   Subsection 18 (1) of the Act requires a liable party in relation to a class of products to be a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement in relation to the class of products.

         (2)   Despite subregulations 2.01 (2) and (3), the person is taken to be in the class of persons who are liable parties in relation to the class of products for the next financial year.

Example

A person is a liable party in relation to the television class for a financial year but fails to be a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement in relation to the television class for that financial year. The person is taken to be a liable party in relation to the television class for the next financial year, regardless of whether the person meets the criterion in regulation 2.02.

         (3)   Subregulation (2) continues to apply to the person in each financial year until the person becomes a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement in relation to the class of products for a financial year.

Division 2.2           Administrators of co‑regulatory arrangements

2.04        Administrator to be fit and proper person

                For subsections 26 (3) and 28 (2) of the Act, in determining whether an administrator of a co‑regulatory arrangement is a fit and proper person, the Minister must have regard to the following matters:

                (a)    any conviction of the administrator, or an executive officer of the administrator, for an offence against the Act committed within the 10 years immediately before the determination;

               (b)    any conviction of the administrator, or an executive officer of the administrator, for an offence against another law of the Commonwealth, or a law of a State or Territory, if that offence was committed within the 10 years immediately before the determination;

                (c)    any civil penalty order made against the administrator, or an executive officer of the administrator, for a contravention of a civil penalty provision in the Act or these Regulations, if that contravention occurred within the 10 years immediately before the determination;

               (d)    whether an executive officer of the administrator is bankrupt, or has applied for bankruptcy;

                (e)    whether any statement by the administrator, or an executive officer of the administrator, in an application under the Act was false or misleading in a material particular, and whether the administrator or executive officer knew that the statement was false or misleading;

                (f)    whether an executive officer of the administrator has been disqualified from managing corporations under Part 2D.6 of the Corporations Act 2001;

               (g)    whether the administrator is an externally‑administered body corporate within the meaning given by section 9 of the Corporations Act 2001.

Part 3                 Outcomes for co‑regulatory arrangements

Division 3.1           Outcomes

3.01        Outcomes

         (1)   For subsection 19 (1) and section 21 of the Act, the outcomes to be achieved by a co‑regulatory arrangement in relation to a class of products are as follows:

                (c)    in the financial year starting on 1 July 2014, and in each subsequent financial year, the material recovery target worked out under regulation 3.06 must be met.

         (2)   To achieve the outcomes mentioned in paragraphs (1) (a) and (b), the administrator of the co‑regulatory arrangement in relation to a class of products must ensure that, under the co‑regulatory arrangement:

                (a)    a person must not be charged for the collection of a product for recycling if the product was used by the person only:

                          (i)    for personal, domestic or household purposes; or

                         (ii)    in relation to a small business; and

               (b)    collection of a product in the class of products for recycling is not refused on the grounds of the type or the brand of the product.

Division 3.2           Collection

3.02        Collection services

                Collection services include the following:

                (a)    programs under which consumers can submit products for recycling by mail or courier;

               (b)    events at which consumers may submit products for recycling;

                (c)    collection stations established solely for consumers to submit products for recycling;

               (d)    locations where consumers may submit products for recycling, but which are also used for other purposes;

                (e)    programs under which consumers may register products for collection at a designated point within a specified time.

3.03        Reasonable access — general requirements

         (1)   Access to a collection service is reasonable if access is provided in accordance with this regulation.

         (2)   A reference in this regulation to:

                (a)    a distance is the distance by road; and

               (b)    the population of an area or town is the population of the area or town as determined in the 2006 Census of Population and Housing, published on the website of the Australian Bureau of Statistics; and

                (c)    the centre point of a town is the point of intersection of the latitude and longitude identified as the location of the town in the Gazetteer of Australia 2010 Release, published by Geoscience Australia in February 2011.

Metropolitan areas

         (3)   For each metropolitan area, the number of collection services provided in each financial year must at least equal the population of that area divided by 250 000 and rounded up to the closest whole number.

Inner regional areas

         (4)   At least one service must be provided for every town of 10 000 people or more in each financial year.

         (5)   A service will be provided to a town mentioned in subregulation (4) if the service is available within 100km of the centre point of that town.

Outer regional areas

         (6)   At least one service must be provided for every town of 4 000 people or more in each financial year.

         (7)   A service will be provided to a town mentioned in subregulation (6) if the service is available within 150km of the centre point of that town.

Remote areas

         (8)   At least one service must be provided for every town of 2 000 people or more, once every 2 financial years.

         (9)   A service will be provided to a town mentioned in subregulation (8) if the service is available within 200km of the centre point of that town.

Division 3.3           Recycling

3.04        Working out recycling targets

         (1)   A recycling target for a class of products is worked out by multiplying the scheme target for that class of products by the import or manufacture share of the co‑regulatory arrangement for that class of products.

Scheme target

         (2)   The scheme target is worked out by multiplying the percentage target for a class of products for a particular financial year by the waste arising for that class of products.

Note   See Schedule 2 for the percentage target for a class of products.

Waste arising

         (3)   The waste arising for a class of products is worked out as follows:

Step 1:

work out the total converted weight of all products in the class of products imported or manufactured over the last 3 financial years;

Step 2:

work out the annual average converted weight of products by dividing the result in step 1 by 3;

Step 3:

multiply the result in step 2 by 0.9.

Note   The Minister will publish, annually, the total converted weight of each product in a class of products imported or manufactured in each of the last 3 financial years.

Import or manufacture share of a co‑regulatory arrangement

         (4)   The import or manufacture share of a co‑regulatory arrangement is worked out as follows:

Step 1:

for each product in the class of products, work out the converted weight of units of the product imported or manufactured by members of the co‑regulatory arrangement in the previous financial year;

Step 2:

for each product in the class of products, work out the converted weight of units of the product exported by members of the co‑regulatory arrangement in the previous financial year;

Step 3:

for each product in the class of products, subtract the result in step 2 from the result in step 1;

Step 4:

work out the total converted weight of products in the class of products by adding together the results worked out in step 3;

Step 5:

divide the result in step 4 by the total converted weight of products in the class of products imported or manufactured by liable parties in the previous financial year, less the total converted weight of products exported by liable parties in that year.

Note   The Minister will publish, annually, the total converted weight of products in each class of products imported or manufactured by liable parties, less products exported, in the previous financial year. This is worked out by subtracting the converted weight of products in each class of products exported by liable parties in that year from the converted weight of products in each class of products imported or manufactured by liable parties in that year.

         (5)   Subregulation (6) applies:

                (a)    to a liable party who has failed to be a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement for a financial year (not including the 2011–2012 financial year); and

               (b)    in relation to the products:

                          (i)    in a class of products imported, manufactured or exported in a prior financial year; and

                         (ii)    that gave rise to the party’s liability to be a member of the co-regulatory arrangement for the financial year.

         (6)   In the first subsequent financial year in which the liable party becomes a member, the products mentioned in paragraph 5 (b) are taken into account in steps 1 and 2 of subregulation (4) as if those products were imported, manufactured or exported in the financial year before the liable party becomes a member.

         (7)   A product exported by a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement in the previous financial year must not be taken into account for steps 2 and 5 of subregulation (4) unless the administrator of the arrangement has given the Minister, by 15 September of the financial year for which the recycling target is being worked out, the following:

                (a)    a report that includes the following details about exports by members of the arrangement:

                          (i)    the total number of units of each product (identified by product code) exported by members in the previous financial year;

                         (ii)    the total weight of all products in the class of products exported by members in the previous financial year, worked out by adding up the converted weight for each product;

                        (iii)    evidence that each exported product was imported or manufactured by the member that exported it no more than 1 year before the product was exported;

               (b)    a report about an audit of the exports mentioned in paragraph (a) that:

                          (i)    is prepared by:

                                   (A)     a person that is a registered company auditor under section 1280 of the Corporations Act 2001; or

                                   (B)     a company that is an authorised audit company under section 1299C of the Corporations Act 2001; and

                         (ii)    includes a statement, from the person or company preparing the report, that the report mentioned in paragraph (a) is accurate.

         (8)   To calculate the converted weight mentioned in steps 2 and 5 of subregulation (4), the same conversion factor must be used for the product exported as was used for the product when it was imported or manufactured.

3.05        How recycling targets may be met

         (1)   A product in a class of products will be taken to be recycled if:

                (a)    it is recycled under a co‑regulatory arrangement; or

               (b)    it is recycled after these Regulations commence by a liable party who subsequently becomes a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement.

When target is exceeded in a financial year

         (2)   If a recycling target is exceeded in a particular financial year by a particular amount (the excess amount), all or part of the excess amount may be used to meet the recycling target in a subsequent financial year.
