Detail of outcome
We received 27 responses to this consultation.
The majority supported introducing civil penalties and we will proceed with the proposed approach. The new regulations will be laid before the UK Parliament in January 2018 and, subject to Parliamentary approval, will come into force within the next few weeks. Enforcement bodies will be able to apply civil penalties from April 2018.
We want to know what you think about our proposals to change the way F-gas regulations are enforced by introducing civil penalties. These changes would apply to England, Scotland and offshore marine areas.
