EFCTC POSITION PAPER ON HCFOs SUBMITTED AS PART OF ODS REGULATION REVIEW PUBLIC CONSULTATION

14 November 2020

In response to the European Commission public consultation on the ODS Regulation, EFCTC submitted detailed comments on a range of issues including the important use of ODS as feedstock and an EFCTC position paper on the HCFOs and their very low but non-zero ODPs. The paper concludes that inclusion of the HCFOs, for example, in Annex II Part B of the ozone regulation would be double regulation and furthermore is not justified by their properties, impact on the stratospheric ozone layer, and very low ODPs below and the minimum ODP threshold for classification as hazardous to the ozone layer.
