You will require this licence if you intend to import, export or manufacture:
- Hydrochloroflurocarbons (HCFCs)
- Methyl bromide
- Synthetic greenhouse gas (SGGs).
There are strict restrictions on the amount of HCFCs that a person is allowed to import or manufacture under a Controlled Substances Licence. Quota is allocated to each licensee and once that quota has been fully allocated you will be required to arrange for a transfer of HCFC quota if you wish to continue importing, or manufacturing HCFCs.
Methyl bromide may only be imported for authorised feedstock use, approved critical use or for genuine quarantine and pre-shipment as allowed by the Montreal Protocol.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
