March 2019 legislation updates for UK Guidance.
The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and the Environment Agency published updated guidance on Fluorinated gases and ozone-depleting substances: how to do business if the UK leaves the EU with no deal. If the UK leaves the EU with no deal, the UK will regulate fluorinated greenhouse gases (F gas) and ozone-depleting substances (ODS) from 12 April 2019. New UK ODS and F gas regulations will transfer most of the requirements of the EU regulations into UK law. The UK will continue to restrict ODS and use the same schedule as the EU to phase down HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons, the most common type of F gas) by 79% by 2030 relative to a 2009 to 2012 baseline.
