Licensing and reporting of ozone-depleting substances (ODS)

The import and export of ODS, as well as production for essential uses, are subject to licensing. These activities, as well as the destruction of ODS, feedstock uses, and process agent uses, are also subject to annual reporting. Furthermore, the use of ODS for laboratory and analytical uses (including the placing on the market of the chemicals for such uses) is subject to registration. For these purposes three electronic systems are in place.

 

ODS Licensing System (ODS2)

A new program for registering ODS laboratory users is in place since December 2015. All users and distributors of ODS laboratory chemicals are requested to register in the new labODS registry and obtain a new number. The ID number assigned by the old program (Laboratory-ODS-database) will shortly be not valid anymore.

Reporting of ODS under Article 27 (BDR)

Log-in here if you are:

  • An ODS importer or exporter
  • An ODS producer
  • A feedstock or process agent user of ODS
  • A destruction facility for ODS
