Final day for cooling industry to have its say on F-Gas

The consultation on how the new F-Gas regulations should be implemented finishes today, January 20, giving cooling firms less than a week to offer its input on how the regulations should be policed and inspected.

The government’s consultation on the implementation of F-Gas ends in a week, and stakeholders who believe that the regulators should take a firmer line on policing are urged to respond.

With the revelation that the Environment Agency has only allocated two inspectors to police the whole of the new regime, many in the industry are concerned that the so-called ‘light touch regulation’ will not catch those who flout the law.

The consultation document reveals that an extra 425,000 cooling systems will be required to have leak inspections, due to lower charge thresholds and the introduction of transport refrigeration to the F-Gas regime.

All details can be found in the consultation document attached.
