The proposed Regulations will be of particular interest to all undertakings, as defined in Article 3(26) of the EU ODS Regulation[1] or Article 2(30) of the EU F-Gas Regulation[2], which produce, recover, recycle, reclaim, use, destroy or trade in Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) or Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases (F-Gases); or which operate refrigeration, air-conditioning or heat pump equipment, or fire protection systems, which contain ODS or F-Gases.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation paper seeks views from everyone, but it is addressed in particular to private, public and third sector organisations which work with, or are likely to work with ODS, F-gases or equipment containing the same.

What Happens Next

We will review results from the consultation which will be used to inform the final version of the legislation for implementation.  We will liaise further with respondents as necessary.
