Appendix II. New chemical substances that lead to the depletion of the ozone layer

N-propylbromide

Appendix III. Phase-out plans

Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC)
15% reduction from 1 January 2002
55% reduction from 1 January 2003
70% reduction from 1 January 2004
75% reduction from 1 January 2008
100% reduction from 1 January 2010.

The reduction is calculated in relation to a base level that corresponds to the HCFC consumption in 1989 plus 2.0 percent of the CFC consumption in 1989, weighted according to the ozone-depleting potential (ODP-tonnes).

Methyl bromide
60% reduction from 1 January 2001
75% reduction from 1 January 2003
100% reduction from 1 January 2005.
The reduction is calculated on the basis of the consumption of methyl bromide in 1991.

Appendix IV. Critical use of halon

Use of halon 1301:

- in aircraft for the protection of crew compartments, engine nacelles, cargo bays and dry bays and fuel tank inerting,
- in military vehicles for the protection of spaces occupied by personnel and engine compartments,
- for the making inert of occupied spaces where flammable liquids and/or gas release could occur in the following areas:
- movable installations in the oil, gas and petrochemical sector,
- existing cargo ships.

Use of halon 1211:

- in military vehicles for the protection of spaces occupied by personnel and engine compartments,
- in hand-held fire extinguishers and fixed fire extinguishing equipment for engines for use on board aircraft,
- in aircraft for the protection of crew compartments, engine nacelles, cargo bays and dry bays,

Appendix V. Process agents

- Use of carbon tetrachloride for separating nitrogen trichloride in the manufacture of chlorine and caustic soda, 
- use of carbon tetrachloride in the recovery of chlorine from residual gases from the manufacture of chlorine, 
- use of carbon tetrachloride in the manufacture of chlorinated rubber, 
- use of carbon tetrachloride in the manufacture of isobutylacetophenone (ibuprofen - pain-killing medications), 
- use of carbon tetrachloride in the manufacture of polyphenylene terephthalamide, 
- use of carbon tetrachloride in the manufacture of radioactively marked cyanocobalamin (medicine), 
- use of CFC-11 in the manufacture of fine synthetic polyolefin fibre sheet, 
- use of CFC-12 in the photochemical synthesis of perfluoropolyether polyperoxide precursors for Z-perfluoropolyether and bifunctional derivates, - use of CFC-113 to reduce perfluoropolyether polyperoxide intermediate products used in the manufacture of perfluoropolyether diesters, 
- use of CFC-113 for the manufacture of perfluoropolyether diols with high functionality, 
- use of carbon tetrachloride in the manufacture of cyclodim (solvent), and 
- use of HCFCs in the above-mentioned processes when this is done to replace CFCs or carbon tetrachloride.

Order (EC) no. 842/2006 article 6 regarding reporting has not been applied in Norway.

Appendix I to Chapter 6a gives a translated version of the EEA agreement’s Appendix II Chapter XVII no. 9b and Appendix XX no. 21aq (Order (EC) no. 842/2006, Order (EC) no. 1494/2007, Order (EC) no. 1497/2007, Order (EC) no. 1516/2007, Order (EC) no. 303/2008, Order (EC) no. 304/2008, Order (EC) no. 305/2008, Order (EC) no. 306/2008, Order (EC) no. 307/2008 and Order (EC) no. 308/2008).

Section 6a-2. Scope

The provisions in this chapter do not apply to Svalbard, Jan Mayen or the dependencies. Otherwise, the scope follows from the legislation in question.

Section 6a-3. Responsible authority

The Environment Agency is the responsible authority in accordance with the Orders.

The Environment Agency or the public or private institution authorised by the agency makes decisions regarding the certification of enterprises and relevant personnel where the Orders have a requirement for such certification.

Section 6a-4. Temporary certificate

Where the Orders allow for temporary certificates or transitional schemes, the Environment Agency or the person(s) authorised by the agency decides what documented competence shall be considered as certification until a certification system is in place.

Section 6a-5. Charges

The costs associated with certification schemes in accordance with this chapter shall be covered by collecting charges from those applying for certification. The Environment Agency determines the rate of charges for the different certificates. The Environment Agency or the person(s) authorised by the agency shall collect the charges.
