Mike Nankivell, chairman of the ACRIB F-Gas implementation group, has called for caution following the recent the vote by the plenary session of the European Parliament to approve the new F-Gas regulations.
Mr Nankivell said: “Despite the fact that the European Parliament has now approved (with a substantial majority) the final text on the revision of the F-Gas Regulation, thus endorsing the political agreement reached at the end of 2013, there are still many questions that remain unanswered about what the changes will mean in practice for the sector.
“The fact is that the approved text of the regulation leaves finer details of certain requirements to be further clarified. Various industry groups are attempting to interpret the new requirements but the Commission is known to be drafting technical guidance in association with member state representatives, which will be critical for us to understand what we have to do next.”
