AHRI and UNEP agree Global Program for refrigerant supply chain networks


Jason, This initiative came out of the meeting I attended in New York last January - the first "Global Supply Chain Conference" - I think you saw my blog on it at the time? Although this story is billing it as AHRI with UNEP, it is indeed a global alliance behind it, one of the associations I hope you'll be pleased to hear is AREA. I even gave up time during my Florioda holiday early this summer to meet the AHRI Deputy CEO to discuss how we proceed. That was followed up with a meeting with their CEO who came to London to meet me, and then the first alliance meeting as a whole which was held in Paris. Hopefully this will ease your mind a little. The licence itself will not replace what we have or duplicate in any way. It is aimed at the third world and developing countries where no trade associations exist, standards are limited, and we are effectively foisting onto them the use of "mildly flammable" gases - and you know my feelings on that one! Early days yet, but it is envisaged that our F Gas qualification, for example, would already qualify as the level of competence for this will have to be set lower.
