This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 10 February 2000, establish a permit system for the export of some bulk controlled substances.
The existing prohibition in respect of exports of bulk CFC, halon, carbon tetrachloride, methyl chloroform, or HBFC to non-complying countries is unaffected by these regulations.
However, the exportation of other bulk controlled substances to a non-complying country, and the exportation of any bulk controlled substance to a complying country, will now require a permit.
The export permit system is a requirement of the 1997 amendment to the Montreal Protocol.
