Description: There is a gradual decrease of maximum quantities (expressed in tonnes of CO2 equivalent) of HFC to be placed on the
EU market by producers and importers, with a freeze in 2015, first reduction step in 2016 and reaching 21% of average
levels of tonnes CO2-eq sold in 2009-2012 by 2030.
Producers or importers of less than 100 tonnes of CO 2 equivalent of hydrofluorocarbons per year are exempt, but
HFCs contained in pre-blended polyols are included.
The phase-down does not apply to:
(a) HFCs imported into the Union for destruction;
(b) HFCs used by a producer in feedstock applications or supplied directly by a producer or an importer to undertakings
for use in feedstock applications;
(c) HFCs supplied directly by a producer or an importer to undertakings, for export out of the Union
(d) HFCs supplied directly by a producer or an importer for use in military equipment;
(e) HFCs supplied directly by a producer or an importer to an undertaking using it for the etching of semiconductor material
or the cleaning of chemicals vapour deposition chambers within the semiconductor manufacturing sector;
(f) from 1 January 2018 onwards, HFCs supplied directly by a producer or an importer to an undertaking producing metered
dose inhalers for the delivery of pharmaceutical ingredients.
There is scope for exemptions from the cap for example if for particular applications, products or equipment, alternatives
are not available, or cannot be used for technical or safety reasons; and a sufficient supply of HFCs cannot be ensured without
entailing disproportionate costs.
