Party Seizure Date Year Substances Traded Volume Importing Exporting Country Illegal Trade Details Action Taken Remarks
Philippines 01-05-2003 CFC-12 & HCFC-22 2,076 disposable cylinders of 13.6 kg each China The physical examination of the contents of two container vans revealed boxes of CFC-12 concealed behind layers of HCFC-22 boxes. The first 2 layers were HCFC-22, while the rest were CFC-12. The shipment was forfeited in favour of the Government. In accord with the tariff and customs code of the Philippines, the forfeited shipment should be sold at auction. Only registered importers will be allowed to participate in the auction, and any ODS they purchase will be deducted from their quota allocation. The importer was fined 50,000 pesos and suffered revocation of certificate of registration and permit to import. Annex to UNEP/OzL.Pro.16/7
Philippines 01-05-2003 CFC-12 & HCFC-22 454 cylinders of 13.6 kg each China Using Neutron refrigerant identifier, the shipment was tested and found to be 30.7% HFC-134a, 9.9% CFC-12, 48.3% HCFC-22, and 11.1% hydrocarbon, instead of pure HFC-134a, as declared. If computed by percentage weight, CFC-12 amounted to 539 kilograms. Annex to UNEP/OzL.Pro.16/7
Philippines 01-05-2003 CFC-12 1,140 cylinders of 13.6 kg each China The shipment was apprehended by the Government of Philippines after which the investigation revealed that the importer applied for a license to import HFC-134a but instead illegally imported CFC-12. The shipment was packed and labelled as HFC-134a but with no brand name and no indication of where the substances had been manufactured. The Government of China has been requested by Philippines to investigate the supplier/exporter of the illegal CFCs. Annex to UNEP/OzL.Pro.15/Inf.6
