CHAPTER I
GENERAL
DIVISION I
SCOPE, PURPOSE AND INTERPRETATION
1. The provisions of this Regulation apply to any halocarbon, whether existing alone or in a mixture, and to its isomers.
The provisions of this Regulation do not apply to halocarbons used to spray a medication within the meaning of paragraph h of section 1 of the Pharmacy Act (chapter P-10) or a drug for which an identification number has been assigned under the Food and Drugs Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. F-27).
They also do not apply to halocarbons, other than CFCs, used to spray substances other than those referred to in the second paragraph or to methyl bromide (CH3Br) when it is not used or intended to be used as a refrigerant.
Only the provisions of sections 6 to 9, the first and second paragraphs of section 10, sections 14, 15, 57 and 58 and the provisions of Chapters III and IV apply to halocarbons that are used, have been used or are intended to be used for the operation of a household refrigeration or air conditioning unit.
The provisions of this Regulation apply in a reserved area or an agricultural zone established under the Act respecting the preservation of agricultural land and agricultural activities (chapter P-41.1).
O.C. 1091-2004, s. 1.
2. The purpose of this Regulation is to ensure the protection of the stratospheric ozone layer against depletion caused by emissions into the atmosphere of halocarbons used in particular in refrigeration or air conditioning systems. Its purpose is also to minimize the increase in the greenhouse effect linked to emissions of certain halocarbon replacements that is one of the sources of man-induced climate change.
To that end, this Regulation prohibits the emission into the atmosphere of halocarbons, governs their use and provides for the progressive prohibition of certain halocarbons. It prescribes standards respecting the containers used to confine those substances and their recovery. It also prescribes environmental qualification requirements to apply to those in the labour force using those substances.
O.C. 1091-2004, s. 2.

The supplier or wholesaler is required to take the returned halocarbons back if they are of the same type as the halocarbons the supplier or wholesaler sells or distributes or sold or distributed before 23 December 2004, so long as
(1)  the halocarbons are confined within an appropriate recovery container;
(2)  a label is affixed to the container identifying the type of halocarbon it contains; and
(3)  the container holds no more than one type of halocarbon and no substance other than halocarbons, except water or oil from normal use or other residues produced by normal halocarbon degradation.
The supplier or wholesaler is also required to give every person or municipality that returns a halocarbon a receipt indicating the name of the supplier or wholesaler, duly dated and signed, specifying the name of the person or municipality that returned the halocarbon and, in the case of a natural person, the name of the enterprise for which the person works and the type and estimated quantity of halocarbon returned.
In addition, the supplier or wholesaler must adequately store the returned halocarbons until the supplier or wholesaler is able to
(1)  reclaim or eliminate them;
(2)  deliver them to an enterprise or body able to reclaim or eliminate them; or
(3)  deliver them to another supplier higher up in the chain of distribution of halocarbons, subject to the second paragraph.
