Ozone Depleting Substances and Other Halocarbons Regulation

The Ozone Depleting Substances and Other Halocarbons (ODSOH) Regulation is a complex regulation that summarizes the restrictions related to the removal, storage and disposal of refrigerants recovered from wet vehicles.  The primary requirement is that only an approved person can remove refrigerants and that the approved person must have completed the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute (HRAI) course (http://www.hrai.ca/) and have a valid Interprovincial Number.

Typically, vehicle dismantlers hire an approved person with mobile equipment to visit the yard, remove refrigerants and complete the necessary paper work and labelling of wet vehicles.
