F-Gas Regulations

F-Gas Regulations have now come into force. The main objectives of the regulations are to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases used as refrigerants through better containment and leakage prevention.

Your Legal Responsibilities

As an operator of refrigeration, air conditioning or heat pump equipment you are now legally required to maintain records covering the maintenance of equipment and any refrigerants added to or reclaimed from your systems. 

How can we help?
