OECD Trade Policy Studies Environmental Requirements and Market Access: Phasing Out Methyl Bromide
This chapter discusses the process by which the ozone‐depleting chemical, methyl bromide, an effective fumigant, is being phased out. An important innovation of the Montreal Protocol was the creation of a special fund to help finance efforts to find substitute products and have them adopted. However, an unintended consequence of accelerated research on finding alternatives is new pesticide/crop combinations for which associated import tolerances (residue limits) have in a number of cases not yet been established.
