COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 291/2011

of 24 March 2011

on essential uses of controlled substances other than hydrochlorofluorocarbons for laboratory and analytical purposes in the Union under Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on substances that deplete the ozone layer

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 September 2009 on substances that deplete the ozone layer (1), and in particular Article 10(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Union has already phased out the production and consumption of controlled substances for most uses. The Commission is required to determine essential laboratory and analytical uses for controlled substances other than hydrochlorofluorocarbons.

(2)

Decision XXI/6 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol consolidates existing decisions and extends the global laboratory and analytical use exemption beyond 31 December 2010 until 31 December 2014 for all controlled substances except for hydrochlorofluorocarbons, thus authorising the production and consumption necessary to satisfy essential laboratory and analytical uses of controlled substances, subject to the conditions established under the Montreal Protocol.

(3)

Decision VI/25 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol specifies that a use can only be considered as essential if there are no available technically and economically feasible alternatives or substitutes that are acceptable from the standpoint of environment and health. In its 2010 Progress Report, the Technical and Economical Assessment Panel (TEAP) has identified a significant number of procedures for which alternatives to the use of controlled substances are now available. Based on that information and Decision XXI/6, a list of those uses for which technically and economically feasible alternatives that are acceptable from the standpoint of environment and health are available should be established.

(4)

A positive list of permitted essential uses of methyl bromide, as agreed by the Parties in Decision XVIII/15, as well as the uses which the TEAP has identified to be without alternatives should also be established.

(5)

In addition, it should be clarified that the use of controlled substances for primary and secondary educational purposes cannot be considered essential and should be limited to higher education or vocational training. Furthermore, the use of controlled substances in experimental chemistry kits available to the general public should not be considered as essential.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 25(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The production, import and use of controlled substances other than hydrochlorofluorocarbons may be permitted for any essential laboratory and analytical use specified in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 24 March 2011

on the allocation of quantities of controlled substances allowed to be imported or produced for laboratory and analytical uses in the Union in 2011 under Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on substances that deplete the ozone layer

(notified under document C(2011) 1819)

(Only the Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish texts are authentic)

(2011/184/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 September 2009 on substances that deplete the ozone layer (1), and in particular Article 10(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Union has already phased out the production and consumption of controlled substances for most uses. The Commission is required to determine the quantities of controlled substances other than hydrochlorofluorocarbons that may be used for essential laboratory and analytical uses, and the companies that may use them.

(2)

The Commission has published a notice to undertakings intending to import or export controlled substances that deplete the ozone layer to or from the European Union in 2011 and undertakings intending to request for 2011 a quota for these substances intended for laboratory and analytical uses (2) and has received declarations on intended laboratory and analytical uses of controlled substances for 2011.

(3)

The determination of the allocated quota shall ensure that the quantitative limits set out in Article 10(6) are respected. As those quantitative limits include quantities of hydrochlorofluorocarbons licensed for laboratory and analytical uses, the production and import of hydrochlorofluorocarbons for those uses should also be covered by this Decision.

(4)

The quantity resulting from the deduction of the quantities allocated to undertakings which produced or imported under licence in the years 2007 to 2009 from the maximum quantity of 110 ODP tons should be allocated to undertakings for which no production or import licences were issued in the reference period 2007 to 2009. The allocation mechanism should ensure that all undertakings requesting a new quota receive an appropriate share of the quantities to be allocated.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 25(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The quotas for importing and producing controlled substances for laboratory and analytical uses in the year 2011 shall be allocated to the undertakings listed in Annex I.

The maximum quantities that may be produced or imported in 2011 for laboratory and analytical uses allocated to these undertakings are set out in Annex II.

Article 2

This Decision shall apply from 1 January 2011 and shall expire on 31 December 2011.
