1.9.2.1 Clarification of materials covered under separate regulation

When a container or package is covered under a separate regulation it should not be reported as part of your annual steward report. Because the regulations covering other container categories vary from province to province, the tables below have been created to outline other regulated programs and some information on the containers which are covered by separate regulation and should not be included in your PPP report.
