New Zealand is party to the Montreal Protocol. One of the obligations under this Protocol is to phase out chemicals that destroy the ozone layer. The Beijing 1999 Amendment was ratified and required New Zealand to:

  1. ban the import and export of HCFCs to or from non-Parties to the Copenhagen Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, to take effect from 1 January 2004
  2. freeze production of HCFCs at 1989 levels, to take effect from 1 January 2004
  3. ban the consumption of BCM from 1 January 2002
  4. ban the import or export of BCM to or from non-Parties to the Beijing Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, to take effect within one year of the date of entry into force of the Beijing Amendment
  5. report annually to the Ozone Secretariat the quantity of methyl bromide used for quarantine and preshipment purposes

New Zealand has two relevant regulatory mechanisms, specifically the Ozone Layer Protection Act 1996 and the Ozone Layer Protection Regulations which are discussed below.
