Ozone Depleting Substances

Retrospective Licence Application


Traders should note that lodgement of retrospective applications for Import Licence, Export Licence or "Import and Export Licence" covering ozone depleting substances does not imply automatic approval of the licences. The issue of retrospective licences is for the sole purpose of facilitating consignment handling and/or trade data capturing and the granting of a retrospective licence shall not constitute a defence in any proceedings under the Ozone Layer Protection Ordinance or preclude any administrative action which may be taken by the Director of Environmental Protection.
