UK: Refcom has produced a technical guide for suppliers of pre-charged split systems and their responsibilities under the F-gas regulations.

The free-to-download guide aims to provide practical guidance for distributors and re-sellers to help them fulfil their obligations both in the strictly legal and in the spirit of the regulation.

The revised F-gas regulation requires distributors to ensure that the buyer of fluorinated greenhouse gases holds the appropriate certificate. As the gas included in split systems is covered by the quota limit, so the equipment containing that gas comes into scope of the requirements of the regulation itself. There is also a requirement for end users, or “operators”, of equipment to ensure those installing and/or maintaining their equipment are properly qualified and certificated to do so.
