Every person who operates a refrigeration or air conditioning unit recovery enterprise for the purpose of the dismantling or sale of scrapped units or parts from units to be dismantled, destroyed or sold for parts only must, as soon as possible and before dismantling the components that contain halocarbons or disposing of them for destruction, recover or have the halocarbons recovered by means of the appropriate equipment. The halocarbons recovered must be confined within a recovery container designed for that purpose.
