F-Gas Regulation Observatory On-line

The objective of the F-Gas Regulation is to protect the environment by reducing emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases. It aims to achieve that by:

  • establishing rules on containment, use, recovery and destruction of fluorinated greenhouse gases, and on related ancillary measures;
  • imposing conditions on the placing on the market of specific products and equipment that contain, or whose functioning relies upon, fluorinated greenhouse gases;
  • imposing conditions on specific uses of fluorinated greenhouse gases; and
  • establishing quantitative limits for the placing on the market of hydrofluorocarbons.
