(See News Notes,this issue--Nov. 1995.) A combination of legal production
and illegal international trade of CFCs is counteracting the gains of the
Montreal Protocol. Four U.S. companies are legally allowed to manufacture CFCs
in the U.S. after 1995, and their production allowances can be sold or traded.
However, these companies should retire their allowances. The U.S. government
should give public access to information on CFC production, stockpiles, imports
and exports of CFCs, data that industries must submit but are now considered
confidential. Moneys from the Montreal Protocol Multilateral Fund should be
withheld from countries that fail to submit data on production, consumption,
imports and exports.

Summarizes the accomplishments of the ICOLP, a group made up of the chief
executives of several multinational corporations and others who have worked to
find ways to reduce the use of ozone-depleting substances. In its first five
years, the group has shared research and development information with companies
in developed and developing countries, and HAS achieved phaseout goals for
ozone-depleting substances as many as four years ahead of the Montreal Protocol
requirements. The group will take the same approach to reduce the use of
environmentally harmful solvents.
