Refrigerant Reclaim Australia Limited


Refrigerant Reclaim Australia Limited (RRA) seeks re-authorisation to continue to operate a product stewardship scheme to recover ozone depleting and synthetic greenhouse gas refrigerants.

RRA is the industry funded not-for-profit product stewardship organisation that recovers, reclaims and destroys ozone depleting and synthetic greenhouse gas refrigerants. The product stewardship program is funded by a levy on the import and sale of new refrigerant that is currently authorised under authorisation A91515. Authorisation A91515 is due to expire on 28 May 2021.

RRA seeks re-authorisation for at least five years. The RRA scheme was first authorised by the ACCC’s predecessor, the Trade Practices Commission, in 1994.

The ACCC invites submissions from interested parties on the application for authorisation by 29 January 2021.

A copy of the application is available below.

An indicative timetable is set out below for your information.
