Aggregated data reported by undertakings on the production, import and export of fluorinated greenhouse gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6) in the European Union. The European Union Regulation (EC) No 842/2006 on certain fluorinated greenhouse gases (the 'old F-Gas Regulation') introduced a requirement for each producer, importer and exporter of more than one tonne of F-gases to report to the European Commission on the quantities produced, imported and exported in each calendar year, including information on the main intended applications of the F-gases quantities reported. Company reporting requirements under the 'new' F-Gas Regulation 517/2014 were extended compared to the 'old' F-Gas Regulation 642/2006. However, this does not come into effect before companies report on their 2014 activities, due 31st March 2015. Aggregated data presented here thus solely rely on data reported under the 'old' F-Gas Regulation 642/2006.

Additional information

Code "C" showed in some data cells means that less than three companies reported data and for confidentiality reasons the data is not provided.

All information provided to the Commission and the EEA on transactions of F-gases in the EU is treated as strictly confidential. The Commission and the EEA have established procedures to ensure that all of the data relating to individual companies will be kept strictly confidential. No company-specific information is disclosed to the public; all company data are aggregated before publication. These procedures limit the release of data that might significantly rely on reports from less than three company groups. To this end, company groups that contribute to less than 5 % do not count toward the ‘3-company-rule’. Concerns regarding confidentiality can be addressed to the Commission or to the entity designated by the Commission.
