New Refcom guidance sets out post-Brexit implications for F-Gas

Updated guidance has noted that many existing commitments of EU regulation are intended to apply to UK businesses certified to handle F-Gas products

Refcom has published new Brexit guidance for the UK cooling industry outlining how F-Gas regulations are expected to apply to their operations upon the country’s scheduled exit from the EU in late March.

The industry body’s latest guidance has noted that from March 30, many of the existing requirements are intended to be transferred directly into UK law.

This will ensure that the country will continue to restrict ozone depleting substances and curb F-Gas use in line with existing EU-wide commitments.

Requirements intended to be carried over into UK law, even with the uncertain progress of Brexit negotiations, include preventing the intentional and unintentional release of F-gases during production and use, according to Refcom.

Other requirements include ensuring leak checks are carried out and records of work are kept up to date, as well as committing to recover any gas for recycling, reclamation or destruction when equipment is repaired or decommissioned.
