Project Title: HCFC Phase – out Management Plan First Stage implementation

Post Level: National / International Consultant

Type of Consultancy: Individual Consultancy

Expected start date:  October 2019

Period of assignment/services: 45 non-consecutive working days



The Jamaica Country Programme (CP) for the phasing-out of ozone depleting substances was approved at the twentieth meeting of the Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund (MLF) in October 1996 and implementation began in February 1997. The CP provided data on consumption and usage of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and identified actions that must be undertaken by the Government and private industry to achieve the phase-out of these substances within the time-frames established under the Protocol. Jamaica completely phased out the consumption of Annex A, Group 1 Chloro-fluorocarbons (CFCs) in

2006 and has commenced the process of phasing out consumption of Annex C, Group 1 Hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) through implementation of the HCFC Phase out Management Plan (HPMP) project. The HPMP will enable Jamaica to meet all the Montreal Protocol's HCFC control targets.

In addition to this, legislation has been established to regulate the trade in Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) via the Trade (Montreal Protocol) (Trade in Ozone Depleting Controlled Substances) Order, 2014. However, provisions need to be made for the establishment of a certification and licensing system for Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning (RAC) Technicians to operate optimally and safely with the paradigm shift to comfortably make the transition away from HCFC based technologies to ozone friendly technologies with reduced carbon footprints.

It is against this background that UNDP is seeking to engage a consultant to assist the Government of Jamaica to identify the legislation and/or policies to be reinforced or modified that will assist in the development of a certification and licensing framework for RAC Technicians.
