Traditionally, companies in Ireland have sourced their quota from UK based companies and, as a result, very few companies in Ireland hold their own quota allocation. The readiness notice outlines that, after the end of the transition period, UK companies who intend to continue to place HFCs on the EU market require an “only representative” (OR) established in the EU. Such companies continue to receive quotas based on their historic market shares in the EU-27 market or based on a declaration of intent as regards the placing on the market of HFCs. If you are reliant on a UK supplier, it is important that you keep in contact with your supplier
to ensure that they intend to continue to supply the EU market and have quota to do so, thus maintaining your supply chain.
