European Commission seeks new curbs on HCFCs, methyl bromide

New controls on HCFCs, including a ban on their use in all refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) equipment from 2008, are included in a revision of the 1994 EC Regulation on ozone-depleting substances prepared by the European Commission. The draft would also oblige Member States to set up qualification schemes for refrigeration engineers with a view to minimising leaks of ozone depleters during equipment servicing.
