EPA ALLOWS CREDIT TRANSFERS
A final ruling by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency permits the transfer among companies of
allowances to produce and import chlorofluorocarbons and halons restricted under
the Montreal Protocol, upon approval by EPA. The rule was published in the
February 9, 1989, Federal Register (pp. 6376-6379), with a
solicitation of comments on an alternative procedure whereby coupons
representing allowances could be transferred without EPA approval. For
