ACRIB to host F-gas conference

16408365_lUK: ACRIB is to host a one day conference in London on November 11 to discuss the changes and implications of the forthcoming F-gas regulation revisions.

The new regulations, which  come into force on January 1,  introduce a range of subtle changes as well as an HFC phase-down mechanism and specific bans on certain equipment. They also bring new areas such as transport into scope.

The EU and DEFRA representing the UK are working to clarify certain definitions and interpretations within the new requirements. ACRIB is following this work closely and will be offering advice to develop guidance on how the changes will impact contractors, manufacturers, and the distribution chain.

Further information about  the conference programme, which will include input from industry experts on the revised requirements and provide attendees with detailed guidance and tools to help them to adapt to the new legislation, will be available shortly.
