1 Ms Sonja Ružin Ozone Officer Republic of Serbia Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning National Ozone Unit Side Event: Risk assessment of illegal trade in HCFCs and preventive measures 30 th OEWG Geneva, Switzerland, 15 June 2010 Experience on iPIC and consolidation of data discrepancies in Republic of Serbia

2 OUTLINE: Application of iPIC mechanism in Serbia Experiences and examples in using iPIC mechanism Consolidation of export data discrepancies (based on data from 2008) Conclusions

3 Case 1. Issuance of import license exporting country submitted iPIC info sheet & exporting company is listed Since ECA meeting -only notification to the exporting country If NOT Case 2. Consultations with the NOU in exporting country sending an to NOU to the exporting country with explanation of the case in question asking if the company is registered asking if the company submitted application for export license to Serbia (the same procedure for export of ODSs, but rarely)

4 E1: Import of R-22 (7.344 metric kg) and R-406a (2.720 metric kg) in February 2010 Producer and exporter: China Consultations with NOU China – exporting company is not an eligible exporter of R-22 and R-406a Result: based on this information, our importer decided to withdraw his application E2: Export of reclaimed R-123 (900 metric kg) to Serbia (initiated by EU) in February Exporter: Italy Consultation with EU - we confirmed that importer is eligible and that he applied for the license, license was issued Result: EU issued export license for reclaimed substance

5 E3: Import of R-406А (2.040 metric kg) in April Producer and exporter: China Consultation with the NOU China – confirmed that exporter is eligible, but didnt applied for export of R-406A to Serbia Result: import license is issued after receiving information that exporter applied for export license in China E5: Import of R-22 (1000 metric kg) in May/June Origin: Germany Exporter: Italy Notification to EU that import license will be issued – company didnt apply for export license to Serbia Results: company submitted application for export to Serbia application was rejected because there is a ban in EU for placing on the market of HCFCs (Italian company can not buy HCFC in EU) option – export to Serbia can be done directly by the German company, but they have to submit application for export license

8 NOU Serbia contacted all 4 countries that were exporting to Serbia in 2008 Croatia – confirmation that our data match Singapore – information that Serbia had significant import of HCFC from Singapore, with suggestion that it should be reported to the Ozone Secretariat China – information that R-12 has been imported from China - request for more information on reported export of R-22 to Serbia (importing company, time of export etc.) We are still waiting for the feedback from Singapore and China.

9 EU – results of the discrepancy analysis SubstanceEU data (kg) Serbian data (kg) Result A/I R R R ,5 Conversion issue (lkg) R Case of double reporting by EU B/II CTC () 1 reliable importer/exporter () C/I R (?) Two bulk licenses issued in EU, waiting for detailed information (?) R-124?14,5 () checking – license issued, didnt report back () R-141b480 R-401A010 (!) Possible illegal export (!)

10 Conclusions i-PIC mechanism is useful tool to prevent illegal trade and also to avoid discrepancies in reported data Important that countries submit their iPIC info sheets (sharing is improved this year) For Serbia it was easy to implement Importers accepted it quite well (they are urging their counterparts to obtain export licenses) Very good feedback from all countries that we had consultations with (in iPIC related consultations as well as in identifying sources of discrepancies)
