Following a process of industry, TSA and public submissions and consultations, the ACCC has determined that it will grant authorisation for the Tyre Stewardship Scheme for a further 6 years.
Tyre Stewardship Australia was established as an industry cooperative scheme, with the support of State and Federal Governments, under an initial 5 year ACCC determination that authorised the Tyre Stewardship Scheme (TSS) and allowed for the charging of the 25cent per EPU consumer levy. That authorisation was granted, as TSA was being established, in 2013 and expires this year.
In reaching its determination the ACCC considered the progress of the voluntary scheme and the impact that TSA has been able to make in educating both industry and consumers of the need to address a clear environmental challenge.
Industry and interested body submissions also provided valuable insights into how the scheme is viewed by key stakeholders and, together with TSA’s submission, offered opportunities for improvements in processes, targets and outcomes over the period of the new authorisation.
The re-authorisation will come into effect on June 15th 2018.
