Consultation on introduction of civil penalties for infringements of the “F” Gases Regulations

Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and The Scottish Government are consulting on the introduction of civil penalties in England, Scotland and the marine areas for infringements of the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations.

These measures are being considered to address concerns about whether the current penalty system provides sufficient deterrence against non-compliance. Consultation closes 24th November. https://consult.defra.gov.uk/environmental-quality/fluorinated-greenhouse-gases-f-gas-regulations/
