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. You are allocated a quota. Once that quota has been exceeded, you will be required to arrange for a transfer of HCFC quota if you intend 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.
