Part 5 of the Regulation
A broker is a person who receives prescribed materials from an
operation but does not generate a new nutrient product from those
materials and transfers the prescribed materials to another operation,
applies them to land on behalf of another or stores them for either
purpose: Regulation Part 1. This definition includes a person
who transports non-agricultural source materials (i.e. biosolids)
from a generator to a receiver and commonly has been referred
to as a "hauler".
Brokers must complete a Broker Agreement Form with each person
from whom they receive prescribed materials and each person to
whom they transfer prescribed materials. The form is found in
Part 16of this Protocol. A copy of each Broker Agreement entered
into must be kept by each party to the Agreement (in other words,
by both the broker and generator where the broker receives materials
and both the broker and receiver where the broker transfers materials).
A Broker must first possess a waste management system certificate
of approval or broker certificate to transport non-agricultural
They are responsible for providing the generator with a list
of sites for land application of the materials, volumes delivered
to sites and application rates of materials, as well as, the corresponding
nutrient management plan identifier or the certificate of approval
numbers for the waste disposal sites approved to accept the prescribed
non-agricultural source materials. This is to aid the generator
in completing an accurate nutrient management strategy.
A Broker who possesses a waste management system certificate
of approval or broker certificate must provide an annual report
that includes all sites to which they delivered and land-applied
prescribed non-agricultural source materials and associated volumes.
This annual report must be kept for a minimum of five years or
longer if the Director requires it: Regulation Part 11.
