Pentagon Refrigeration and Air Conditioning All Rights Reserved 2011

From 4 July 2009 it became a legal requirement for all businesses that install, maintain or service stationary refrigeration, air-conditioning and/or heat pump equipment containing or designed to contain F gas refrigerants to obtain an F gas Company Certificate.

The principal objective of the EC Regulation is to contain, prevent and thereby reduce emissions of F gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol, so as to help combat climate change.

There are obligations in the F gas Regulation (EC Regulation 842/2006) and the Ozone Regulation (EC Regulation 2037/2000) that affect many industry sectors. In some cases the obligations lie with the owner / operator of the equipment. In other situations the obligations lie with third parties, such as equipment suppliers, maintenance contractors and waste handling companies.
