The GB Retained: Regulation (EU) 517/2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases and repealing Regulation (EC) 842/2006 sets out the requirements around fluorinated greenhouse gases, including rules around production, import, use, recovery and disposal in Great Britain following the end of the transition period.
Various duties apply.
A minor technical change has been made to update an incorrect date.
The recalculation of reference values based on the annual average of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) placed on the market under Article 16(3) began in 2015. However, a previous amendment incorrectly changed this start date to 2021. This amendment changes the start date back to 2015.
There are no changes to duties for organisations.
