You need a quota to sell ODS that you import or produce.

The window for applying for GB quota is closed. The Environment Agency will open the window for businesses to apply for 2022 quota later this year and will publish details in this guide.

You must register for an ODS account if you want to work with:

  • ODS
  • equipment containing ODS

When you have an account, you must apply for a quota from the Environment Agency to sell ODS that you import or produce.

You can only apply for a quota for ODS for:

Laboratory and analytical use

You must check that anyone you are selling ODS to in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) for laboratory or analytical use has a valid laboratory ODS (LabODS) number).
