Measurement Assurance in the Identification of Ozone-Depleting Substances


Measurement assurance in the identification of ozone-depleting substances is considered. It is indicated thatozone-depleting halogenated hydrocarbons must be monitored, and portable devices for detecting counterfeits in customs border control are needed.
