OPERATION OF EXISTING EQUIPMENT
EU F-Gas Regulation – Commercial Refrigeration
The 2014 F-Gas Regulation includes a number of requirements that affect the use and maintenance of existing commercial refrigeration equipment containing HFC refrigerants. The exact rules depend on the type and size of commercial refrigeration equipment being used. The regulations affecting existing equipment relate to
(a) leak prevention,
(b) record keeping,
(c) the Service Ban and
(d) the use of trained technicians.
These requirements are described below.
Leak prevention and mandatory leak checks
The intentional release of F-Gases into the atmosphere is prohibited and operators of all commercial refrigeration/ Air conditioning equipment must take all measures that are technically and economically feasible to minimise leakage. Where leaks are detected operators must carry out repairs without undue delay.
