 Implementing the new EU Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulation

Summary: Seeking views on implementing provisions of the new EU F-gases regulation and on the assessment of impact on business.

Detail: We want to know what you think about our plans to implement the main provisions of the [EU Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas regulations]( in the UK.  We also want your views on our assessment of the cost of the new domestic legislation on UK businesses.

Fluorinated gases (F-gases) are powerful greenhouse gases which were largely introduced as replacements to chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which damage the ozone layer. They are used in refrigeration, air-conditioning, insulation foams, electrical equipment, aerosol sprays, medical inhalers, solvents and fire extinguishers.

The 2006 EU Regulation will be replaced by a new one, applying from January 2015, which will lead to an 80% cut in emissions by 2035.
