The evaluation will look into the implementation of the Regulation on substances that deplete the ozone layer (ODS), which ensures compliance with the obligations set out in the Montreal Protocol regarding ozone-depleting substances. The current EU Regulation includes additional requirements and is more ambitious than the Montreal Protocol by envisaging quicker phase-out schedules and by controlling more ozone-depleting substances and more uses. It controls substances not just in bulk, but also contained in products and equipment. Legislation in this area was expected to bring technological leadership in finding alternatives to ozone-depleting substances and increased competitiveness and sustainability of EU businesses on the global market.
