Full text
3. In this Regulation,
“CFC” means a fully halogenated halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of chlorine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “chlorofluorocarbon”); (CFC)
“halocarbon” means a chemical compound that may contain up to 3 carbon atoms or, in the case of a PFC, more than 3 carbon atoms, the structure of which may include hydrogen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine or iodine, that is stable enough to reach the stratosphere and that may react with stratospheric ozone or be the source of climate change; it includes the substances set out in Schedule I, whether existing alone or in a mixture, and includes the isomers of any such substance; (halocarbure)
“halon” means a fully halogenated halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of bromine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “bromofluorocarbon”); (halon)
“HCFC” means a halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of hydrogen, 1 atom of chlorine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “hydrochlorofluorocarbon”); (HCFC)
“HFC” means a halocarbon each molecule of which contains only carbon, hydrogen and fluorine atoms (also referred to as “hydrofluorocarbon”); (HFC)
“PFC” means a fully fluorinated halocarbon each molecule of which contains only carbon and fluorine atoms (also referred to as “perfluorocarbon”); (PFC)
“power rating” means the total power rating of all the motors connected to the compressors in the same cooling system of a refrigeration or air conditioning unit, calculated from the power of each motor as specified by its manufacturer and expressed in or converted into kilowatts. (puissance nominale)
A freezing unit is considered to be a refrigeration unit.
A heat pump or a dehumidifier is considered to be an air conditioning unit.
A refrigeration or air conditioning unit includes refrigeration or air conditioning systems or facilities and, depending on the context, the pipes, tubes, hoses, valves or other components necessary for its operation.
A fire extinguishing system is considered to be a fire extinguisher and includes, depending on the context, the cylinders, pipes, tubes, hoses, valves or other components necessary for its operation.
For the purposes of the third paragraph of section 9, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is considered to be a halocarbon.
