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
United States of America 2013 HCFC-22 22.9 MT China A person was accused in 2017 of entering into an agreement with a Chinese company to purchase HCFC-22, which was packaged in cylinders bearing counterfeit trademarks. The 2013 contract listed the product as R-134a – but a second, secret agreement called for the company to actually sell HCFC-22. The indictment charged the accused with conspiracy, one count of entry of goods by means of false statement, five counts of passing false and fraudulent papers through a customhouse, one count of smuggling and one count of violating the Clean Air Act by improperly selling HCFC-22 to an undercover agent. In 2018 the accused pleaded guilty of charges of illegally importing ODS. He was ordered to pay a fine of $40,000 and sentenced to a term of two years’ probation, to include 6 months of home confinement.
