REFCOM confirmed as F gas certification body

REFCOM has signed an agreement with the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) confirming its appointment as a mandatory F gas company certification body for businesses operating in the stationary refrigeration , air-conditioning and heat-pump sector in Great Britain.

It concludes discussions between Defra and REFCOM to finalise the details of an agreement reached in principle in February 2009.

A similar agreement was about to be signed for these businesses operating in Northern Ireland.

Company certification is a legal requirement under Sections 23 and 24 of the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases (FGG) Regulations 2009, which became law in March this year.

REFCOM’s chief executive Bruce Kirton says, ‘Now that REFCOM has been appointed, we will work hard to process applications as quickly as possible. Compliance is required by law, and gas and equipment suppliers will expect businesses to be certificated.’
