Illegal HFC Imports

Ensure safety and safeguard the environment by avoiding illegal refrigerants

Illegal trade of refrigerants poses a major risk towards the health and safety of the installers and users and for the reliability of equipment. The sale and usage of illegally imported refrigerants risks legal action from the authorities and can impact your brand reputation.

Safeguard yourself from safety hazards and legal non-compliance by purchasing compliant refrigerants from reputable brands and suppliers. Please report any illegal or suspicious offerings of HFCs to the EFCTC Action Line.

Suspected illegal refrigerants may also be notified directly to the national competent authorities who have the primary responsibility for the enforcement of the F-Gas Regulation. You can find the list of F-Gas national authorities here: Contact List
