Carbon tetrachloride is a clear, non-flammable liquid and is used almost exclusively as a chemical intermediate in closed systems in industry, with a few exceptions of restricted permitted uses. It is regulated under the Montreal Protocol and in the EU by the so-called ODS regulation (Regulation (EU) 1005/2009 (formerly Regulation (EC) 2037/2000)). Its use by consumers or in consumer products has long been prohibited in the EU.
Chloroform is a clear, non-flammable liquid used mainly as a chemical intermediate for the production of fluoropolymers (PTFE etc.), but also as an industrial extraction solvent or laboratory agent. Its use by consumers or in consumer products has long been prohibited in the EU.
