4.12 Section 17 & 18: Class 1, 2 or 3 Substances to Sellers & Inappropriate Sales

Section 17: Return of Class 1, 2 or 3 Substances to Sellers

Any person entitled to purchase a Class 1, 2 or 3 substance may return that substance in an appropriate container to any person who sells that same substance.

The seller shall accept for return any Class 1, 2 or 3 substance for storage until it can be delivered to a manufacturer, recycler, reclaimer or for destruction (the seller must ensure one of these actions occurs).

Refrigerant Management Canada (RMC) is responsible for coordinating activities and arrangements related to the collection and destruction of refrigerants from certain industry sectors.

Select refrigerant wholesalers have been set up as collection points and will accept refrigerants into the RMC program. Check with your wholesaler or distributor to see if they are partners in this national initiative.

Section 18.1: Sale in Inappropriate Containers Prohibited

No person shall offer for sale or purchase a Class 1, 2 or 3 substance unless the product or substance is contained in an appropriate container (designed and manufactured to be refillable).
