Abstract:
Today's notice proposes amended regulations implementing the 1992 and later requirements of section 604, as well as the related provisions of sections 603, 607 and 616, in a manner consistent with the United States' continuing obligations under the Montreal Protocol as amended. Specifically, EPA proposes to (1) Apportion baseline allowances to produce or import ozone-depleting substances to companies that produced or imported certain ozone-depleting substances in the baseline years; (2) allocate decreasing amounts of those allowances to the companies according to the phase-out schedule prescribed by section 604; (3) also apply an 18-month cap from July 1, 1991 to December 31, 1992 on production and consumption as required under the Protocol; (4) permit transfers of allowances provided the transferor's remaining allowances are reduced by the amount it transferred plus one percent of the amount transferred; (5) permit production in excess of the amount authorized by the original allocation of allowances in order to supply developing countries that are operating under article 5 of the Protocol, so long as producers provide adequate assurances that the production supplied to the developing country will not be reexported; (6) permit transfers of allowable production with other Protocol Parties under certain conditions; (7) change the approach to granting additional allowances for transforming ozone-depleting substances in the case of carbon tetrachloride; and (8) impose additional reporting and record-keeping requirements as needed to include several newly regulated chemicals in the phase-out program.
