Ozone Depleting Substances
Legal and Administrative Actions
The Trade and Industry Department works closely with the Environmental Protection Department to check whether ozone depleting substance is imported or exported under and in accordance with a licence. Any person who contravenes the licensing requirements may be prosecuted and liable on conviction to a maximum penalty of a fine of $1,000,000 and imprisonment of two years. In addition, the Director of Environmental Protection may take administrative action, independent and irrespective of legal action mentioned above, against the parties to a licence.
