Reporting and documentation

The balance between preservation of confidentiality and transparency of the data is an important issue, especially in low-use sub-applications. Specialist ODS substitutes are often manufactured by only a few producers, in quantities very much lower than ODS substitutes used in other applications. Careful aggregation of GWP-weighted data may be a means to resolve this issue.
