Established under the Multilateral Fund, UNEP/ IE/PAC's OzonAction
Programme provides information clearinghouse services to developing
countries to meet their needs for the technical information required to
identify, select, and implement technologies and strategies to phase out
ODS(ozone depleting substances). UNEP IE/PAC has produced a series of
technical documents to address each of the three stages in switching to an
"ozone friendly" technology. Information about the technology catalogues
and other ozone protection publications is available.

The catalogues consist of:
1) Introduction/User's Guide: an aid to select an appropriate non-ODS(ozone
depleting substance) alternative. It covers technical, environmental, health,
and safety, cost, availability, and legislative considerations of the alternatives.
2) Datasheets/Supplier Lists: identify world wide sources of alternative
technology, as well as the suppliers of equipment and chemicals.
3) Worldwide contacts for sources of additional expert assistance, in both the
private and public sectors.

The catalogues are "living" documents that will be updated on a regular basis
to reflect technological advancements, new products, and changing control
