Under Title VI of the Clean Air Act, EPA regulates the import of ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) into the United States. Requirements differ for virgin and used ODSs as well as for Class I and Class II ODSs.

If an ODS is imported into the United States, the importer is subject to recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Imports of Class I ODSs are required to submit reports to EPA 45 days after the end of the quarter, and importers of Class II ODSs are required to submit reports to EPA 30 days after the end of each quarter.
