The European Commission published a formal notice in the Official Journal for companies wishing to market hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in the EU in 2015. Companies need to register and submit their applications for 2015 HFC quotas by 1 July 2014.

Companies will be allocated quotas that limit future sales of HFCs, which are greenhouse gases. This is the first step in preparing a drawdown of HFC use in the EU. New legislation targets reducing emissions of HFCs by one-third of current levels by 2030.

The formal notice is on the EU site at:
