Protecting the environment and our natural resources is important to us. We operate a strict waste management system and are registered with the Environment Agency as a responsible carrier of waste products.
We are aware of any impact the materials used in the refrigeration process can have on the environment, and, as a result, we have embraced relevant legislation and regulations in our aim to reduce our carbon footprint and reduce our impact on the environment. We are fully committed to continual improvement in this area. To that end, we make all reasonably practicable endeavours to ensure our operations are environmentally responsible.

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 (fluorinated greenhouse gases) to obtain an F-Gas Company Certificate.
In addition to being F-Gas certified, all our engineers are trained in the safe handling of refrigerants. The 2014 EU regulation on the use of F-gases replaces the 2006 regulation and impacts on anyone who uses or services refrigeration and air conditioning systems. We are regularly audited by Refcom Elite, who ensure the high standards required for best practice in refrigerant management and containment are met.
IS YOUR AIR CONDITIONING AND REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT COMPLIANT?
Amendments to the 2014 EU Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas Regulation on 1st January 2017 affects the frequency and necessity of mandatory documented leak checks on refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) equipment containing Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol. Owners of RAC systems located in the EU (including the UK) need to ensure their existing systems are in compliant with the F-Gas Regulation.
End User Compliance Checklist for EU F-Gas Regulation
- Comply with various bans on the use of HFC’s in new equipment
- Take account of service ban and HFC phasedown when selecting refrigerants
- Mandatory leak checks and repairs
- New CO2 equivalent size thresholds for mandatory leak checks
- Keep records about RAC and heat pump equipment using HFC refrigerants
- Service ban affecting maintenance of existing high GWP systems (e.g. HFC 404A)
- Use qualified technicians for leak checking and refrigerant handling operations
- Mandatory recovery of refrigerant by qualified technician
EU F-Gas Regulation and Brexit
Until the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 organisations will need to comply with the regulation as at present. Post leaving the EU the intention of the Repeal Bill will be to convert existing EU law into UK law and as such the F-Gas Regulations will continue as is until such time as they may or may not be changed.
CAM Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Ltd will mange all your F-Gas responsibilities including all documentation within a maintenance contract at no additional cost.
