EFCTC stepping up actions against Illegal Trade in HFCs

16 September 2019

Whilst many have taken their Summer vacations, the activities to combat illegal trade in HFCs have gained further momentum. Work has been consolidated on the valuable information received from over 150 leads on the EFCTC “Action Line” and a number of “evidence packs” have been produced and are being discussed with National Enforcement Authorities. It is anticipated that this will lead rapidly to both further seizures of illegally imported HFCs as well as prosecutions of offenders. Seizures have already been made in Bulgaria, Greece, Poland and Romania.
