Montreal Protocol 

Adopted in 1987, it controls the consumption and production of chlroine- and bromine- containing chemicals that destroy the stratospheric ozone.

Solomon et al., 2007, p. 949 

 

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer was adopted in Montreal in 1987, and subsequently adjusted and amended in London (1990), Copenhagen (1992), Vienna (1995), Montreal (1997) and Beijing (1999). It controls the consumption and production of chlorine- and bromine- containing chemicals that destroy stratospheric ozone, such as chlorofluorocarbons, methyl chloroform, carbon tetrachloride and many others.
