    Dear, The cruise industry operates worldwide and should therefore in principle be regulated by global regulation only. Any (proposal for) legislation or regulation going beyond international agreements should therefore be considered carefully. We note that the ODS Regulation goes beyond what is already agreed in the Montreal Protocol. Technical and operational consequences for the cruise industry should be considered appropriately when...

    It is evident that our ozone layer is regenerating. Saying this, we consider that the ODS Regulation fulfilled its purpose as it stands now. In this respect we consider that there is no need for fundamental changes of this legislation. Some minor elements (e.g. additional exemptions) could be adapted, though. Opinions on “if” and “how” could be collected during the envisaged fitness check. Finally, one must note that since 2008 the ODS rules...

Despite the ODP>0...

    Θα ήθελα να σχολιάσω ένα σημείο μόνο. Σύμφωνα με τον Κανονισμό, απαγορεύεται η εισαγωγή εξοπλισμού που βασίζεται (relying on) σε ουσίες που καταστρέφουν το όζον, ODS. Δεν υπάρχει όμως πρόνοια για το "τι θα γίνει στην περίπτωση που ένας έμπορας εισάγει εξοπλισμό που περιέχει ODS, και συνήθως R22". Απο την στιγμή που απαγορεύεται η εισαγωγή του εξοπλισμού, σημαίνει ο εξοπλισμός θα πρέπει να καταστραφεί (destruction). Θεωρώ ότι δεν είναι...
