Environment Canada and Climate Change Published the Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2022 in Part 11

Submitted by Caroline:

The Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2022 (the Regulations) repeal and replace the Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003 (FHR 2003). The scope of the Regulations remains the same as the FHR 2003, but the Regulations streamline the framework, remove or update obsolete provisions, address enforcement and implementation issues, clarify requirements and key definitions, reduce administrative burden for both regulatees and the Government and enhance alignment with other jurisdictions.

The purpose of these Regulations is to protect the ozone layer and the climate by reducing and preventing emissions of ozone-depleting substances and of their halocarbon alternatives to the environment from air-conditioning, refrigeration, fire-extinguishing and solvent systems that are;

  • located on federal or aboriginal lands; or
  • owned by federal departments, boards and agencies, Crown corporations, or federal works and undertakings.
  • The Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2022 are available via the Federal Halocarbon Regulations Information webpage - canada.ca/federal-halocarbon-regulations.

A virtual information session on the new Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2022 is planned on June 21, 2022 at 1:30 PM. This session will be held in English. To participate, please register here.
