The CFC-Halon Prohibition Ordinance (FCKWHalonVerbV) was a German federal law regulation banning certain the ozone layer depleting halocarbons . It had been in force since August 1, 1991 and was replaced by the Chemicals Ozone Layer Ordinance on December 1, 2006 .

It regulated usage restrictions and bans for the substances described above. In German chemicals law , further restrictions and bans on the use of chemicals (including preparations, products, etc. that contain them) are set out in the Hazardous Substances Ordinance (GefStoffV) and in the Chemicals Prohibition Ordinance (ChemVerbotsV).

By the end of 1994, Germany was one of the first countries in the world to complete its phase-out of fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). The FCKWHalonVerbV envisaged a gradual ban on the use or manufacture of these substances depending on the area of ​​application.
