South Africa targets HFC legislation "within a year"
South Africa intends to ratify the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol before it comes into effect in January 2019 and to put in place a legislation to regulate HFCs within a year.
During the ATMOsphere Network Frigair 2018 held in June in Johannesburg, Obed Baloyi, chief director, chemicals management in the Department of Environmental Affairs said that within a year, South Africa will have in place "some kind of legislation" to regulate HFCs. The legislation would enter into force thanks to a "Climate Change Act", one of whose goal is to stop pumping HFCs into the South African market. This act should go to the parliament soon, according to Balovi.
