About National ozone Unit
The National Ozone Unit (NOU) is a unit established at the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA). NOU acts as the secretariat of the National Ozone Committee, which is a committee established (Minister of State for Environmental Affairs Decree No. 80 of 8th April, 2013) with the mandate of assisting EEAA in the implementation of Egypt’s obligations, by selecting the mechanism to regulate the import and export of quantities of ozone-depleting
controlled substances to ensure verification of compliance of Egypt with the provisions of the Montreal Protocol for the Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.
Many ozone-depleting substances have been disposed of in Egyptian factories, and they have been replaced by other environmentally friendly alternatives.
