Did you know that as an end user of refrigeration or air conditioning (RAC) equipment, you are responsible for complying with Fluorinated Gas (F Gas) Regulations?
In summary, the regulations require that you:
Any company who wishes to carry out activities affected by these regulations must be accredited and have FGas registration. As part of this all engineers who work with refrigerants must also be certified. There are four Levels 1-4 with 1 being the highest:
For personnel who require certification to carry out indirect leak testing of systems containing FGases.
For personnel who require certification to carry out refrigerant recovery on systems containing F Gases up to 3Kg of Fgas (6Kg if hermetically sealed system).
For personnel who require certification to carry out recovery, installation, maintenance and repairs on systems containing Fgases up to 3Kg of Fgas (6kg if hermetically sealed system) or Air Conditioning / Heat Pumps up to 5Kg of FGases (6Kg if hermetically sealed system) Commercial pipe work and brazing certificate is also mandatory for this category.
For personnel who require certification to carry out all work on all systems such as installation, recovery, maintenance and repairs regardless of FGas quantity. Industrial pipe work and brazing certificate is also mandatory for this category.
||All on365 engineers are Category 1 qualified so have the highest FGas certification. There are therefore no restrictions on the equipment on365 can work on or the type of work we can undertake.|
