Register with the Alberta Used Oil Management Association (AUOMA)

If you are a company that sells or imports lubricating oil (e.g., automotive oil), oil filters, or oil containers into the Alberta market then you are a first-seller of lubricating oil materials and you are required, by law, to register with AUOMA.

Alberta regulations also require first-sellers to remit an Environmental Handling Charge (EHC) to AUOMA on all lubricating oil, oil filters, and oil containers they sell or import into Alberta’s market.
