AMS 2018 fee rates and reporting categories

The board of Automotive Materials Stewardship (AMS) on September 29 approved 2018 fee rates and new antifreeze categories.

The new Antifreeze reporting categories and fee rates apply to the sales quantities for the period January 1, 2018 – March 31, 2018 (Q1).  Stewards will report these quantities by April 30, 2018 (Q2) invoices will be calculated using the new Antifreeze fee rates for Q1 sales quantities reported in Q2. The first payment reflecting the new fee rates will be due on May 31, 2018.


Fee rates for oil containers and oil filters are unchanged from 2017. The board identified an opportunity to simplify administrative requirements for antifreeze stewards who participate in other stewardship programs across Canada by aligning AMS reporting and fee categories with those programs. The Bulk and Packaged antifreeze categories used for 2017 fee rates will be replaced by three material categories: Premix, Concentrate and Containers.
