Grain traders participating in the EPR industry collection system play a vital role in increasing efficiency and compliance levels of EPR collection and reconciliation. Grain traders are currently participating in the industry collection system in one of two capacities;

  • As  a collect and remit grain trader, whereby royalties are directly deducted from grower payments and remitted to variety owners
  • As a data provision grain trader, whereby reports outlining sales of EPR varieties are remitted to variety owners to allow for manual reconciliation and direct invoicing of the grower

The majority of grain traders participating in the EPR industry collection system in a collect and remit capacity have agreed to provide remittance and reports in adherence with the following timelines;

Collection Period Remittance & reporting date
September 1 – December 31 January 31
January 1 – April 30 May 31
May 1 – August 31 September 30
