The MOE has proposed replacing the five current regulations dealing with ozone-depleting substances – O. Reg. 356/90 (Ozone Depleting Substances – General); O. Reg. 189/94 (Refrigerants); O. Reg. 413/94 (Halon Fire Extinguishing Equipment); O. Reg. 717/94 (Solvents); and O. Reg. 718/94 (Sterilants) – with one single regulation, in order to streamline and simplify requirements. At the same time, the requirements would be harmonized with the National Action Plan for the Environmental Control of Ozone-Depleting Substances and their Halocarbon Alternatives.
