TECHNICAL BULLETIN: REFRIGERANT RECOVERY
The latest REFCOM technical guide has now been added to our website.
It is a requirement under EC517/2014 that fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerants are properly handled: that they must be used, contained, recovered and destroyed in an environmentally friendly manner according to strict rules and procedures.
The objective of this technical bulletin is to inform members of the importance of effective refrigerant recovery – either during major service or at the end of the service life of a piece of equipment – to highlight the difference between reclaim and recycling and the effect that has on the recovered gas quality and any system it is subsequently used in.
IS YOUR REFCOM F GAS CERTIFICATION DUE FOR RENEWAL?
2017 is a busy year for F gas certification renewals. If your certification is due for renewal, we’ll send you an email with a link to our online system. It’s a quick and easy process, and should only take around ten minutes.
If you haven’t yet received your email, and you think your certification is due to expire, please contact the REFCOM team using the details below.
To find out more about why you should renew with REFCOM, the UK’s market leading F Gas certification scheme, visit our website.
THE WAY WE AUDIT IS CHANGING
To make sure that your business continues to meet the scheme requirements, you may be subject to a random risk-based assessment and/or an on-site audit.
We’re simplifying the way we run our audits, streamlining the process to make it easier, quicker and cheaper for you to comply. The new process will start in the summer, we’ll email again soon to let you know more. In the meantime, if you have any questions about audits, please contact the team using the details below.
