Full text
3. In this Regulation,
CFC means a fully halogenated halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of chlorine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “chlorofluorocarbon”); (CFC)
fire extinguisher means a device capable of extinguishing a fire, or a fire extinguishing system and, unless the context indicates otherwise, the cylinders, pipes, tubes, hoses, valves or other components necessary for their operation; (extincteur)
halocarbon means a chemical compound that contains at least one carbon atom and one halogen atom, that is stable enough to reach the stratosphere and that may react with stratospheric ozone or be the source of climate change; it includes in particular the substances set out in Schedule I, whether existing alone or in a mixture, and includes the isomers of any such substance; (halocarbure)
halon means a fully halogenated halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of bromine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “bromofluorocarbon”); (halon)
HCFC means a halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of hydrogen, 1 atom of chlorine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “hydrochlorofluorocarbon”) and whose molecular formula is CnHxFyCl(2n+2-x-y), where 0 < n < 4; (HCFC)
HFC means a halocarbon each molecule of which contains only carbon, hydrogen and fluorine atoms (also referred to as “hydrofluorocarbon”) and whose molecular formula is CnHxF(2n+2-x), where 0 < n < 6; (HFC)
PFC means a fully fluorinated halocarbon each molecule of which contains only carbon and fluorine atoms (also referred to as “perfluorocarbon”); (PFC)
power rating means the total power rating of all the motors connected to the compressors in the same cooling system of a refrigeration or air conditioning unit, calculated from the power of each motor as specified by its manufacturer and expressed in or converted into kilowatts; (puissance nominale)
refrigeration or air conditioning unit means a refrigeration or air conditioning system or facility, a freezing unit, a heat pump or a dehumidifier and, unless the context indicates otherwise, the compressor, pipes, tubes, hoses, valves or other components necessary for their operation. (appareil de réfrigération ou de climatisation)
For the purposes of the subparagraph 3 of the third paragraph of section 5 and the second paragraph of section 9, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is considered to be a halocarbon.

3. In this Regulation,
“CFC” means a fully halogenated halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of chlorine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “chlorofluorocarbon”); (CFC)
“halocarbon” means a chemical compound that may contain up to 3 carbon atoms or, in the case of a PFC, more than 3 carbon atoms, the structure of which may include hydrogen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine or iodine, that is stable enough to reach the stratosphere and that may react with stratospheric ozone or be the source of climate change; it includes the substances set out in Schedule I, whether existing alone or in a mixture, and includes the isomers of any such substance; (halocarbure)
“halon” means a fully halogenated halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of bromine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “bromofluorocarbon”); (halon)
“HCFC” means a halocarbon each molecule of which contains 1, 2 or 3 carbon atoms and at least 1 atom of hydrogen, 1 atom of chlorine and 1 atom of fluorine (also referred to as “hydrochlorofluorocarbon”); (HCFC)

“power rating” means the total power rating of all the motors connected to the compressors in the same cooling system of a refrigeration or air conditioning unit, calculated from the power of each motor as specified by its manufacturer and expressed in or converted into kilowatts. (puissance nominale)
A freezing unit is considered to be a refrigeration unit.
A heat pump or a dehumidifier is considered to be an air conditioning unit.
A refrigeration or air conditioning unit includes refrigeration or air conditioning systems or facilities and, depending on the context, the pipes, tubes, hoses, valves or other components necessary for its operation.
A fire extinguishing system is considered to be a fire extinguisher and includes, depending on the context, the cylinders, pipes, tubes, hoses, valves or other components necessary for its operation.
For the purposes of the third paragraph of section 9, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is considered to be a halocarbon.
