F-gas regulation No.842/2006
On 4th July 2007, F-gas regulation No.842/2006 became UK law.
This regulation places a legal obligation on the 'operators' (end users) of installed refrigeration and air conditioning equipment to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases such as refrigerants, through better containment and leakage prevention.
As an ‘operator’ of such equipment, your new obligations are to ensure that the personnel you appoint to maintain and repair your air conditioning equipment are competent and appropriately trained, and that any newly installed equipment is clearly labelled with the type and quantity of refrigerant that it contains.
You are required to ensure that your equipment is leak-tested regularly, and to repair any detected leakage as quickly as possible. You are also required to keep records of the refrigerant type and quantity in use at your premises, and log any refrigerant that has been lost or added.
As part of our commitment to our contract customers, Celsius will manage the documentation and administration associated with this new legislation, on your behalf and at no additional charge, to ensure your full compliance with the scheme.
