The Ozone Depleting Substance Regulations of 2003

The Swaziland ODS regulations have been in existence since 2003. The regulations are part of the Environment Management Act (2002) in the country. These regulations regulate imports and exports of ODS and ODS dependent equipment. The regulations further provide for a licensing system on importation of ODS and ODS dependent equipment into the country.

The licensing and quota system is fully operational in Swaziland to further safeguard against the use of ODS in the Swaziland. To further safeguard against projects that might use ODS in the country, the Swaziland Government adopted the Environmental Audit, Assessment and Review Regulations, 2000, which provide for the undertaking of Environmental Impact Assessment and Audits for new and existing projects.

New regulations have come into effect which have amended the old ODS regulations of 2003. These are called “The Ozone Depleting Substance (Amendment) Regulations, 2014” which were passed and gazetted in 2014 and shall be read as one with the ODS regulations of 2003. These new regulations put into effect new developments that have been brought about by the Montreal Protocol to cover the HCFC baseline freeze of 2013, the 10% and 35 % reductions in 2015 and 2020 respectively.

These regulations have included in them, the mandatory registration of importers and exporters of controlled substances or controlled products, issued quota allocations for importers and exporters.
