F-Gas Regulation

The catering and hospitality industry is only just beginning to get to grips with new mandatory responsibilities for operators of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment, following the implementation of the F-Gas Regulation. The legislation came into force on July 4, 2011, and is part of a European-wide push to reduce emissions of HFCs, potent Global Warming gases in widespread use as refrigerants in commercial refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

Those who operate refrigeration and air conditioning equipment can get quickly up to speed with the new requirements, and what they must do to comply, by attending a series of practical and informative seminars being staged alongside the forthcoming Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Show at the NEC on 13 to 15 March 2012.
