Members

No. The EHC represents handling charges determined by UOMA PE's Board of Directors and paid by members on the basis of their volume of sales. Information provided by members regarding their volume of sales is treated on a confidential basis. All amounts are used only for the management of the program. No sums will go to the government besides reasonable management fees required to be paid by law to Department of Environment Labour and Justice of Prince Edward Island.
The Prince Edward Island regulation requires all brand owners who do not advise the Department of Environment Labour and Justice that they wish to submit their own program, to join UOMA PE.
