Are you successfully monitoring your HFC refrigerant?
Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are the most widely used refrigerants in the industry, popular for their stability, non-flammability and energy efficiency. However, anyone using HFCs will have new obligations to minimise emissions of F-Gases in line with the F-Gas Regulation. The Regulation introduces new legal responsibilities on the part of end-users to prevent the release of refrigerants from refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. Containing HFC refrigerant is the only way to successfully comply with the regulation.

Whether you are an end-user, installer, maintenance contractor, equipment manufacturer or distributor of products containing HFC refrigerants, you will need to know the following:
· The timeframe in which to prepare and key deadlines to be aware of
· Your legal responsibilities to ensure your systems are leak free, easy to monitor and that detailed records are kept for on the spot Government inspections
· How to prepare for formal on-site inspections and what will be expected
· What the penalties will be for non-compliance
· The importance of technical expertise and know-how to drive plant efficiency
· The most cost-effective and comprehensive way to improve existing systems
· What training programmes will be put in place for contractors and what the cost implications will be
· How to formulate a practical action plan and what the next step should be
