Title: Protection of Stratospheric Ozone: The 2014 Critical Use Exemption From the Phaseout of Methyl Bromide 
Abstract: Methyl bromide was phased out under the Clean Air Act and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in 2005, except for limited exemptions. This action would authorize uses for the 2014 critical use exemption, and would authorize the amount of methyl bromide that may be produced or imported for those uses in 2014. Absent this rulemaking, production and import of methyl bromide for critical uses would be zero for 2014. EPA takes this action under the authority of the Clean Air Act to reflect a consensus Decision of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol in November 2012.
