(Non) Grandfathered Quotas

The Australian HFC quota system encompasses only those parties which are bulk importers of gas. Import quota is made available as Grandfathered (incumbent) and Non-Grandfathered (new entrant) quota. Equipment importers are not subject to a quota allowance, but must hold an Equipment License from the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW).

AFS Cooling as a quota holder itself has access to both refrigerant import and quota sourcing services for its clients.

Several factors drive companies to purchase HFC import quotas. Firstly, these quotas are essential for companies that rely on the import of HFC refrigerants to meet the demand for refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. Many businesses depend on these gases to manufacture, service, or maintain cooling systems. By securing an HFC import quota, companies can ensure a consistent supply of refrigerants and prevent disruptions in their operations.

Moreover, HFC import quotas are critical for companies operating in regions where environmental regulations restrict the use of high-GWP refrigerants. By purchasing quotas, businesses can continue to serve customers who require refrigeration or air conditioning services while adhering to legal requirements. This not only helps them maintain their existing customer base but also positions them as environmentally responsible businesses. Additionally, as companies transition to lower-GWP alternatives, HFC import quotas can facilitate a gradual shift, giving companies the time and flexibility to adapt to changing market demands and regulations.
