What the Law says
In line with the European Union F-Gas Regulation, from 4th July 2009 it became a legal requirement for all businesses that install, maintain or service stationary refrigeration, air-conditioning, heat-pump (RAC) equipment that contains “F-gas” refrigerants to hold a Company Certificate issued by an appointed Company Certification Body. Cooling Factory has registered with Bureau Veritas.
In addition, the F-Gas Regulation which came into force on 4th July 2007 requires companies and other organisations with air conditioning plant to ensure that the fluorinated greenhouse gases are contained within the systems.
All our engineers are trained to the required standard to meet the requirements of the legislation in order to help companies properly maintain their equipment and stay within the law. We have introduced a system to assist companies in meeting the demands for adequate labelling and record-keeping required by the law.
Many UK businesses were unaware that this new regulation was about to be enforced. “We contacted our clients to inform them that F-gas came into force on the 4th of July – and the major implications it holds for their business.”
Companies must have equipment containing these refrigerants regularly tested. All relevant plant must be clearly labelled and maintained and comprehensive records kept. Records must be made available for inspection by enforcement officers. Our maintenance package will provide a comprehensive solution.
