Please note that items that are no electric, are built/wired in and/or are part of other programs are excluded from the program.

For clarification purposes, CESA may add additional product examples to the lists of included and not included products. To figure out whether a product should be included in the program, see the CESA Product Definition Decision Tree.

Products must be specifically listed as Designated Very Small Items by the CESA program in order to be included in category 14 (Designated Very Small Items – Part 1) or category 21 (Designated Very Small Items – Part 2).

If your product(s) does not seem to be on this list or you are unsure about which category it belongs to, please contact memberservices@cesarecycling.ca
