THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases and repealing Regulation (EC) No 842/2006 (1), and in particular Article 19(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1191/2014 (2) specifies the means and format for the report to be submitted pursuant to Article 19 of Regulation (EU) No 517/2014, in relation to the use of certain fluorinated greenhouse gases as feedstock or where products or equipment which contain those gases are placed on the market by producers, importers and exporters of those gases and by undertakings that destroy those gases.

Decision XXX/10 (3) of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer (4) (Montreal Protocol) sets out the revised reporting forms to be used for reporting on controlled substances, including on hydrofluorocarbon-23 (HFC-23) by-production and imports and exports of polyols containing hydrofluorocarbons following the global entry into force of the Kigali Amendment to that Protocol regarding the phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) on 1 January 2019 (5).

(3)

The reporting format set out in the Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1191/2014 should be amended in order to align it with the reporting format set out in Decision XXX/10 used by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol. This would enable the Union to comply with its reporting obligations under the Montreal Protocol.
