From 1 July 2005, the Australian Government Department of the
Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts is issuing licences for
people who buy, sell, store or handle ozone depleting or synthetic
greenhouse gas. It is now necessary for applications to be submitted to them rather than as previously done to Tasmanian Government.
Application forms are available from refrigerant wholesalers or can
be downloaded from the Australian Refrigeration Council website.
For more information about ozone protection check the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities website or call the Australian Refrigeration Council Hotline: 1300 884 483.
