After 7 years of discussions at Montreal Protocol meetings, the 28th Meeting of the Parties (MOP28) to the Montreal Protocol, held in Kigali, Rwanda, in October 2016, has adopted an amendment for a global cap and reduction for HFC consumption and production on a GWP-weighted basis.
The Kigali Amendment is available here https://treaties.un.org/doc/Publication/CN/2016/CN.872.2016-Eng.pdf
The latest September MOP (Meeting of the Parties) of the Montreal Protocol has decided Adjustments to the Protocol which should accelerate the freeze year and the phase-out of HCFCs in developed and developing countries.
The recast of the Ozone Regulation (EC/1005/2009) has now been published and came into force on 1st January 2010.
In addition to implementing the ban on the use of virgin hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) the recast will bring in some new requirements, such as record keeping and the need to label systems. For guidance on these changes see Information Sheets RAC 3 & 8. These sheets have recently been updated to provide more detail on the new requirements.
After its adoption by the EU Parliament, the Council has adopted the final text of the recast Regulation EC 1005/2009 in July 2009.
The main objectives of the Revision are to simplify the legislation in force, to ensure the continued compliance of Member States with the Montreal Protocol 2007 adjustments, and to address future challenges.
