Legislation requires importers of refrigerant to participate in a Product Stewardship Scheme (PSS). RRA manages this scheme, the funds received via the PSS are used for the collection and destruction of ODS/SGG refrigerants at the end of shelf life.
To become a new contributor to the Product Stewardship Scheme, (a two step process) you will first need to register so you can use our website to access the Product Stewardship Scheme Agreement.
When your details have been verified access will be granted to the VIP section. this is step two, you will need to choose the most applicable agreement for your entity.
The agreement must be signed by you and submitted via the portal to RRA for processing.
RRA offers 3 different options:
All fees are subject to change
However, withdrawal cannot be processed if you hold an active licence, documentary evidence is required that your licence has expired or you have surrendered your licence to the Department of Environment and Energy

Submit any reports, pay any levies relating to the Licensing period. Please use the “enquiries” tab on the RRA portal, advising your intention to withdraw from the PSS, attach documentary evidence of your expired/surrendered license.
Provided all aspects have been addressed, RRA will process your withdrawal from the PSS and notify the Commonwealth Ozone team of your withdrawal.
