Information reported by the Parties on illegal trade (Decision XIV/7 (7))

Parties are invited to report to the Ozone Secretariat fully proved cases of illegal trade in ozone-depleting substances.

Party Seizure Date Year Substances Traded Volume Importing Exporting Country Illegal Trade Details Action Taken Remarks
Nigeria 2013 CFC-12 89 Cylinders of 16.8KG ≈ 1.5 MT of CFC-12 from China to Nigeria In 2013, a company illegally imported 89 cylinders containing 16.8 kg of CFC-12 refrigerant each from China to Lagos, Nigeria. The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and National Agency for Food and Drug Administration & Control (NAFDAC) are designated national authorities responsible for control of import/export and issuance of license/permits to chemical importers in Nigeria. NCS and NAFDAC in collaboration confiscated this illegal import. The shipment papers did not state that it was CFC-12. It was identified using gas identifiers. The seized goods were received by the NOU and safely stored at the Ozone village- a centre for Ozone-friendly technology development. The company that illegally traded in the CFC-12 was fined, which was paid and also issued with a letter of warning. The company is still doing operating but under a very strict supervision by the relevant chemical regulatory agency. The CFC-12 was destructed using rotary kiln incineration technology, under Nigeria’s Pilot ODS wastes Disposal Project implemented by UNIDO. in 2019 UNEP issued global award certificates for NAFDAC & NCS in recognition of their roles in preventing illegal use of banned Ozone Depleting Substances, specifically CFC-12 in Nigeria and encouraged the Ministry to present the certificates to the agencies during celebration of the Ozone Day. The award certificates and medals were presented to the two organizations, accordingly.
