The EPA stated that the Regulations Regarding Hydrochlorofluorocarbon Consumption Management had been formulated in order to comply with the Montreal Protocol. The Regulations manage the production, import, export and consumption of HCFCs. Based on the Regulations, enterprises that import HCFCs must apply for an import quota from the EPA. After receiving the quota, the enterprises must obtain an import permit through the BFT’s electronic import and export certification system to import/export HCFC related commodities, as well as for customs inspection.
After the amendments, both quota and permit applications as well as customs inspection will all be done through the electronic Import and Export Certification System for Chemical Substances Controlled by the Montreal Protocol, established by the EPA. This modification will reduce the possibility of enterprises submitting applications to the wrong agencies.
