Initially a voluntary program, RMC became regulated in 2017 with the implementation of the P2 Plan for Halocarbons (link to page G).  In May 2016, Environment and Climate Change Canada published the P2 Plan for Halocarbon Refrigerants for the HVACR industry, requiring all importers of halocarbon refrigerants used in the stationary industry to be part of a stewardship program that ensures proper management of these refrigerants through to end-of-life.  Since the RMC program was already an established stewardship program, all of the RMC current participants in the program have committed to continuing their support for the RMC program under the new requirements of the now mandatory P2 Plan.
