The most common controlled substances include: Halo carbons, notably chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and Halons; Carbon tetrachloride; Methyl chloroform (1,1,1 trichloroethane); Hydrobromofluorocarbons (HBFCs); Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs); Methyl bromide (CH3Br); and Bromochloromethane (BCM), a new ozone-depleting substance that some companies sought to introduce into the market in 1998, which has been targeted by the 1999 Beijing Amendment for immediate phase-out to prevent its use.
In the framework of Regulation 2037/2000 EC on substances that deplete the ozone layer, and in compliance with commitments made under the Montreal Protocol on these same products and the protection of the ozone layer, the EU has scheduled the gradual abandonment of the production and use of chlorofluorocarbons, other fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons, halons, carbon tetrachloride, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, hydrobromofluorocarbons and bromochloromethane.
