Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP)

In 1990 the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel was established as the technology and economics advisory body to the Montreal Protocol Parties. The Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) provides, at the request of Parties, technical information related to the alternative technologies that have been investigated and employed to make it possible to virtually eliminate use of Ozone Depleting Substances (such as CFCs and Halons), that harm the ozone layer. The TEAP is also tasked by the Parties every year to assess and evaluate various technical issues including evaluating nominations for essential use exemptions for CFCs and halons, and nominations for critical use exemptions for methyl bromide. TEAP’s annual reports are a basis for the Parties’ informed decision-making.

The TEAP manages its subsidiary bodies including the standing Technical Options Committees and temporary Task Forces which are established and dissolved according to the needs for specialized assessments as required by the Parties. The Panel operates with six Technical Options Committees (TOCs)namely Chemicals Technical Options Committee (CTOC), Flexible and Rigid Foams Technical Options Committee (FTOC), Halons Technical Options Committee (HTOC), Medical Technical Options Committee (MTOC), Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee (MBTOC)and Refrigeration, Air-Conditioning and Heat Pumps Technical Options Committee (RTOC) The Technical Options Committees assess the development of the relevant technology to replace ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) in the fields of medical therapy, refrigeration and air conditioning, rigid and flexible foam blowing, fire protection, methyl bromide fumigation, including quarantine and pre-shipment, chemical and industrial applications
