Montreal Protocol on Substances that deplete the Ozone Layer. 2002 Report of the Aerosols, Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses and Carbon Tetrachloride Technical Options Committee (ATOC)
In response to the scientific consensus that chlorofluorocarbons and halons deplete the ozone layer, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) enacted the Montreal Protocol as the principal legal document to authorize the fight to reduce the production of substances that deplete the ozone layer. This document presents an assessment report compiled by the Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses and Carbon Tetrachloride Technical Options Committee, and reveals the progress made in efforts to phase out the consumption of chlorofluorocarbons commonly used in aerosol sprays. It also puts forward recommendations on how greater progress can be achieved.
