Division 3.3Recycling

3.04  Working out recycling target

             (1)  The recycling target of a co‑regulatory arrangement, for a financial year, is the scheme target for that year multiplied by the co‑regulatory arrangement’s import or manufacture share for that year.

             (2)  The scheme target is the percentage target for a financial year (see Schedule 2) multiplied by the waste arising.

             (3)  Waste arising is worked out as follows:

Method statement

Step 1    Identify the total converted weight of all television or computer products imported or manufactured in the last 3 financial years.

 

Step 2    Work out the annual average converted weight of products by dividing the result of step 1 by 3.

 

Step 3    Multiply the result of step 2 by 0.9

Note:          In 2013, the total converted weight was accessible on the department’s website (http://www.environment.gov.au/).

             (4)  The import or manufacture share, of a co‑regulatory arrangement, for a financial year (the current financial year), is worked out using the following steps:

Method statement

Step 1A  For each kind of television or computer product, identify the total number of units imported or manufactured, in the previous financial year, by all liable parties who are members of the co‑regulatory arrangement during the current financial year.

Step 1B  Multiply that number by the conversion factor for that kind of product (as set out in column 3 of the relevant Schedule).

 

Step 2A  For each kind of television or computer product, identify the total number of units exported, in the previous financial year, by all liable parties who are members of the co‑regulatory arrangement on 15 September of the current financial year.

Step 2B  Multiply that number by the conversion factor for that kind of product (as set out in column 3 of the relevant Schedule).

 

Step 3    For each kind of television or computer product, take the result of step 1B and subtract the result of step 2B.

 

Step 4    Add together each result of step 3.

 

Step 5A  Identify the total converted weight of all television or computer products imported or manufactured by all liable parties in the previous financial year.

Note:          In 2013, the total converted weight of each kind of television or computer product was accessible on the department’s website (http://www.environment.gov.au/).

Step 5B  From that number, deduct the total converted weight of the exported products reported under regulation 3.04C.

 

Step 6    Divide the result of step 4 by the result of step 5B.

             (5)  For subregulation (4), the co‑regulatory arrangement:

                     (a)  must use the same conversion factor for steps 1B and 2B; and

                     (b)  if the requirements of subregulation 2.02(1) are satisfied—must count all products that satisfy those requirements; and

                     (c)  if the requirements of subregulation 2.02(2) are satisfied—must count all products that satisfy those requirements; and

                     (d)  if the requirements of subregulation 2.02(3) are satisfied—must count all products that satisfy those requirements; and

                     (e)  if the requirements of subregulation 2.02(2) are satisfied but the requirements of subregulation 2.02(3) are not satisfied—must count:

                              (i)  all products that satisfy the requirements of subregulation 2.02(2); and

                             (ii)  all computer parts or peripherals imported or manufactured by the liable party in the previous financial year; and

                      (f)  if the requirements of subregulation 2.02(3) are satisfied but the requirements of subregulation 2.02(2) are not satisfied—must count:

                              (i)  all products that satisfy the requirements of subregulation 2.02(3); and

                             (ii)  all computers or printers imported or manufactured by the liable party or a related body corporate in the previous financial year.

Example:    If a person imports 6 000 televisions and 6 000 computers in a financial year, the televisions and the computers must be taken into account when working out the import share.

                   However:

(a)    if a person imports 6 000 televisions and 2 000 computers (i.e. less than the number of computers required in subregulation 2.02(2)) in a financial year, only the televisions must be counted when working out the import or manufacture share; and

(b)    if a person imports 7 000 computers and 14 000 computer parts or peripherals (i.e. less than the number of computer parts or peripherals required in subregulation 2.02(3)), all of those products must be counted when working out the import or manufacture share; and

(c)    if a person imports 17 000 computer parts or peripherals and 4 000 computers (i.e. less than the number of computers required in subregulation 2.02(2)), all of those products must be counted when working out the import or manufacture share.

3.04A  Import or manufacture share—no co‑regulatory membership on 30 June

             (1)  This regulation applies if a person:

                     (a)  is a liable party in a financial year because of television or computer products that were imported or manufactured before the financial year; and

                     (b)  is not a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement on 30 June of the financial year; and

                     (c)  becomes a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement at a later time.

             (2)  For subregulation 3.04(4), a proportion of the products are taken to have been imported or manufactured in the financial year immediately before the year in which the person becomes a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement, as worked out according to the following formula:

                  

                   where:

non‑membership days means the number of days in the financial year, immediately before 30 June, for which the liable party was not a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement.

number of days in year means the number of days in the financial year.

products means the television or computer products mentioned in paragraph (1)(a).

             (3)  Regulation 3.04B (which allows proportioning of the products) does not apply to those products.

Example 1: A person imports 20 000 web cameras in the 2013/2014 financial year, and therefore is a liable party in the 2014/2015 financial year. The person is not a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement in the 2014/2015 financial year, and does not become a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement until the 2015/2016 financial year.

                   The co‑regulatory arrangement must count all of the 20 000 web cameras as if the web cameras had been imported in the 2014/2015 financial year, even if the liable party is not a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement for the whole of the 2015/2016 financial year.

Example 2: A person imports 36 500 web cameras in the 2013/2014 financial year, and therefore is a liable party in the 2014/2015 financial year. The person is a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement for the first 265 days of the 365 days in the financial year, but is not a member for the last 100 days, including on 30 June.

                   The co‑regulatory arrangement must count 10 000 web cameras (10 000 = 36 500 ÷ 365 x 100) as if the web cameras had been imported in the 2014/2015 financial year, even if the liable party is not a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement for the whole of the 2015/2016 financial year.

             (4)  Subregulation (2) does not affect the import of manufacture share of co‑regulatory arrangements in the financial year mentioned in paragraph (1)(a).

3.04B  Import or manufacture share—co‑regulatory membership for part of year

             (1)  This regulation applies if:

                     (a)  a co‑regulatory arrangement is working out its import or manufacture share of a kind of television or computer products, for a financial year; and

                     (b)  a liable party was a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement for only part of the financial year.

             (2)  For subregulation 3.04(4), the co‑regulatory arrangement must count only a proportion of the kind of television or computer products that were imported or manufactured by the member, as worked out using the following formula:

                  

                   where:

membership days means the number of days in the financial year that the liable party was a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement.

number of days in year means the number of days in the financial year.

products means the number of that kind of television or computer product that was imported or manufactured in the year before the financial year.

Example:    A liable party imported 36 500 web cameras in the year before the financial year. The liable party was a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement for 100 days of the financial year.

                   The co‑regulatory arrangement must count only 10 000 of the web cameras (i.e. 10 000 = 36 500 x 100 ÷ 365) when working out its import or manufacture share for the financial year.

             (3)  For subregulation (2), if the liable party:

                     (a)  becomes a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement after 1 July in a financial year; and

                     (b)  has not previously been a member of another co‑regulatory arrangement in the financial year;

the liable party is taken to be a member of the co‑regulatory arrangement from 1 July of the financial year.

Example:    A liable party is not a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement between 1 July 2014 and 31 August 2014, when the liable party becomes a member of co‑regulatory arrangement ABC. The liable party remains a member of co‑regulatory arrangement ABC until 30 June 2015.

                   The liable party is taken to have been a member of co‑regulatory arrangement ABC from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015.

             (4)  For subregulation (2), if a liable party:

                     (a)  becomes a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement (the previous co‑regulatory arrangement) in a financial year; and

                     (b)  becomes a member of another co‑regulatory arrangement (the later co‑regulatory arrangement) later that financial year;

the liable party is taken to be a member of the later co‑regulatory arrangement from the day after the liable party stopped being a member of the previous co‑regulatory arrangement.

Example 1: A liable party was a member of co‑regulatory arrangement ABC from 1 July until 31 August 2013. The liable party becomes a member of co‑regulatory arrangement XYZ on 1 December 2013 and remains a member until 30 June 2014.

                   For subregulation (2), the liable party is taken to be a member of co‑regulatory arrangement XYZ between 1 September 2013 and 30 June 2014.

Example 2: A liable party became a member of co‑regulatory arrangement ABC on 1 July, and stopped being a member on 31 August 2013. The liable party becomes a member of co regulatory arrangement XYZ on 1 August 2013, (i.e. before the liable party stopped being a member of co‑regulatory arrangement ABC) and remains a member until 30 June 2014.

                   For subregulation (2), the liable party is taken to be a member of co‑regulatory arrangement XYZ between 1 September 2013 and 30 June 2014.

3.04C  Import or manufacture share—counting exported products

             (1)  This regulation applies if:

                     (a)  a liable party was a member of a co‑regulatory arrangement on 15 September of a financial year (the current financial year); and

                     (b)  the liable party exported television or computer products in the previous financial year.

             (2)  The co‑regulatory arrangement, when working out its import or manufacture share for the current financial year, may count the exported products only if the administrator of the arrangement, on or before 15 September of the current financial year, gives the Minister:

                     (a)  a report that states:

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

                             (ii)  the total converted weight of each kind of kind of television or computer product exported by members in the previous financial year; and

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

                     (b)  a report, prepared by an auditor, that states the report mentioned in paragraph (a) is accurate.

             (3)  In this regulation:

auditor means:

                     (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.

3.05  How recycling targets may be met

             (1)  A television or computer product 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.

             (3)  However, only up to 25% of the recycling target for a subsequent financial year may be met from the excess amount.

Recycling target for 2012–2013 financial year

             (4)  Any recycling undertaken during the financial year starting on 1 July 2011 may be taken into account in meeting the recycling target for the financial year starting on 1 July 2012, and the limitation in subregulation (3) does not apply.

Note:          No recycling targets have been set for the 2011–2012 financial year.

When target is not reached in a financial year

             (5)  If a recycling target is not achieved under a co‑regulatory arrangement in a particular financial year:

                     (a)  the co‑regulatory arrangement is taken not to have achieved the outcomes for the arrangement in that financial year; and

                     (b)  the amount by which the co‑regulatory arrangement fell short of the recycling target for that financial year must be added to the recycling target for the arrangement for the following financial year.
