On the 4 July 2006, in-line with the Kyoto Protocol, the European Union's F-Gas Regulation No 842/2006 became law and, for the majority of measures, came into effect from 4 July 2007.
If your company operates stationary refrigeration or air conditioning systems the aim of the F-Gas Regulation is to prevent leakage of environmentally damaging fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-Gases), and to ensure repairs are undertaken as soon as possible if a leak is detected.
All systems have to comply with The European Commission (EC) standard leak checking requirements. Under these new regulations, where F-Gas leak detection is used on large systems, these must be checked at least annually.
Installing a Gas Refrigerant Leak Detection system will save both time and money by reducing inspection and maintenance costs, and help ensure you fully comply with the F-Gas Regulation.
