U.S. EPA Proposes Regulations for Ozone-Depleting Substances as Process Agents
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has put forth a proposed rule to introduce recordkeeping and reporting requirements for the use of ozone-depleting substances as process agents. This initiative also aims to update definitions to align with current practices. The establishment of these codified requirements will ensure clear and consistent reporting of information gathered by the EPA as a party to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. These measures are designed to monitor these specific uses more effectively under the Clean Air Act and improve the understanding of emissions that are harmful to the ozone layer, supporting the goal of ozone protection.
