EC Regulation 2037/2000 on ozone-depleting substances is directly applicable in the UK. This includes Article 16, which deals with the recovery for destruction or for recycling or reclamation of ozone-depleting substances. Under separate national regulations applicable to Great Britain and Northern Ireland, any person having control of such substances has a duty to comply with Article 16. Any person who fails to do so is committing an offence.
