F-Gas Regulation Update - March 2014

On 12th March 2014 the new F-Gas regulations were adopted as proposed by 644 votes to 19 with 16 abstentions by the Plenary session of the European Parliament.
 
The vote supports the text that was approved on 18th December 2013 after extensive negotiations.  It was approved by the Parliament Environment Committee in January and will now go to the Council of Ministers for approval.  It will then be published in the Official Journal in the next couple of months, so it can enter in law.  The new regulation is expected to take effect from 1st January 2015.
 
A summary of the key elements of the legislation is available here with further detail available in our Contact 6 magazine.
