Verification of Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) Imports and Licensing System in Liberia (2016-2020)

The purpose of this report is to verify Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) consumption for the period 2016 to 2020 under the implementation of the Hydrochlorofluorocarbon Phase out Management Plan (HPMP) in Liberia and to make recommendations for actions. The report is restricted to imports ofHCFC-22, which is currently the only ones used in the country. The ODS Regulations of 2004, was amended and approved in 2010 to make provision for HCFC and is undergoing another amendment to provide for HFCs. The NOU issues HCFC import licenses to assist in capturing data for record keeping purposes. A review of the consumption patterns of HCFC shows a continuous decline in the consumption of the substance.
