(4) For closed-cell foams that are not exported inside of appliances, the identity of the fluorinated GHG in the foam, the density of the fluorinated GHG in the foam (kg fluorinated GHG/cubic foot), and the volume of foam exported (cubic feet) for each type of closed-cell foam with a unique combination of fluorinated GHG density and identity.
(5) Dates on which the pre-charged equipment or closed-cell foams were exported.
(6) If the exporter does not know the identity and mass of the fluorinated GHG within the closed-cell foam, the exporter must report the following:
(i) Total mass in metric tons of CO2e of the fluorinated GHGs exported in closed-cell foams.
(ii) For closed-cell foams that are exported inside of appliances, the mass of the fluorinated GHGs in CO2e contained in the foam in each appliance and the number of appliances imported for each type of appliance.
(iii) For closed-cell foams that are not exported inside of appliances, the mass in CO2e of the fluorinated GHGs in the foam (kg CO2e/cubic foot) and the volume of foam imported (cubic feet) for each type of closed-cell foam.
(iv) Dates on which the closed-cell foams were exported.
(v) Name of the foam manufacturer for each type of closed-cell foam where the identity and mass of the fluorinated GHGg is unknown.
(vi) Certification that the exporter was unable to obtain information on the identity and mass of the fluorinated GHGs within the closed-cell foam from the closed-cell foam manufacturer or manufacturers.
