Need for the Document[edit]

NEMA developed the Environmental Management and Co-ordination (Controlled Substances) Regulations, 2007 to regulate the use of ozone depleting substances by setting standards.

Information which might help[edit]

Environmental Management and Co-ordination (Controlled Substances) Regulations, 2007

These Regulations aim to regulate the production, trade and use of controlled substances and products; provide for a system of data collection to facilitate compliance with relevant reporting requirements under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer; promote the use of ozone friendly substances, products, equipment and technology; and ensure the elimination of substances and products that deplete the ozone layer. Ozone Depleting Substances are chemicals that destroy the stratospheric ozone layer in the atmosphere by increasing the ultra violet rays from the sun to the earths surface. Kenya is currently a consumer of ODS and therefore relies on importation and exportation of ODS. Any importer or exporter is required under these regulations to obtain an import license or export license respectively. An importer or exporter of any ODSs in piecemeal must obtain a permit for the same. It is a requirement to comply with the license and permit conditions.
