2 Montreal Protocol The most successful international treaty ever, signed by 197 countries Aim to phase out PRODUCTION of ozone depleting gases Methyl bromide added in 1992 Phase out of non QPS use in developed countries was required by 2005 and developing countries by 2015 After those dates required to apply to the UNEP with a critical use nomination QPS is exempt controls but countries asked to reduce use


4 History of use Peak of nearly 70,000 tonnes of methyl bromide use in early 1990’s Many countries have totally phased out methyl bromide use Reduced to 12,665 tonnes 2012 Quarantine and preshipment is now 70% of the world use 50 countries reported QPS use in 2012 Figures Source: Ozone Secretariat Data Access Centre, April 2014

5 QPS use v Non QPS use

6 Non QPS use

7 QPS use A5 = developing, non- A5 = developed countries

8 Main categories of MB use for QPS # Category of useA5Non-A5Worldwide Grain & dried foodstuffs18% 8%14% Sawn wood and WPM*12% 8%23% Logs29%17%21% Soil in situ 0%30%14% Misc. and other16% 7% 8% Total identified uses75%70%80% The main four uses amount to over 70% of the MB consumed for QPS Technical Economic Assessment Panel estimates that % of these top four consumption categories (grain, logs, soil, WPM) can be replaced immediately with commercially available alternatives * WPM – Wood packaging material; # - TEAP Progress Report 2011

19 IPPC Replacement or reduction of the use of methyl bromide as a phytosanitary measure (2008) Recommends a number of things to do to: 1. Replacement of Methyl Bromide Use as a Phytosanitary Measure 2. Reducing Volumes of Methyl Bromide Use as a Phytosanitary Measure 3. Physically Reducing Methyl Bromide Emissions 4. Recording Methyl Bromide Use as a Phytosanitary Measure 5. Guidelines for Appropriate Use of Methyl Bromide as a Phytosanitary Measure

20 Record MB use in Categories Bulbs, corms, tubers and rhizomes (intended for planting) Cut flowers and branches (including foliage) Fresh fruit and vegetables Grain, cereals and oil seeds for consumption including rice (not intended for planting) Dried foodstuffs (including herbs, dried fruit, coffee, cocoa) Nursery stock (plants intended for planting other than seed), and associated soil and other growing media Seeds (intended for planting) Wood packaging materials Wood (including round wood, sawn wood, wood chips) Whole logs (with or without bark) Hay, straw, thatch grass, dried animal fodder (other than grains and cereals listed above)

21 Categories of MB use Cotton and other fibre crops and products Tree nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts etc.) Structures and equipment Buildings with quarantine pests (including elevators, dwellings, factories, storage facilities) Equipment (including used agricultural machinery and vehicles), empty shipping containers and reused packaging Other items Personal effects, furniture, crafts, artefacts, hides, fur and skins
