REFCOM welcomes agreement on UK-EU certification recognition

 REFCOM, refrigeration, Brexit, registration

An agreement between the EU and the UK to continue the mutual recognition of professional certification should put minds at ease throughout the refrigeration and air conditioning industry, according to the UK’s primary F Gas register REFCOM.

Months of negotiations have produced welcome ‘clarity and certainty’ for firms that operate in different parts of the EU, who feared their proof of competence would cease to be recognised after the UK formally withdraws from the EU at the end of January.

REFCOM registration will continue to be accepted throughout the EU during the transition period at the end of 2020, and probably beyond that time, as the UK and EU thrash out a longer-term trading agreement.

‘While Brexit heralds the start of a period of uncertainty for businesses, our industry is in the fortunate position of now knowing exactly where we stand on professional certification,’ said Head of REFCOM Graeme Fox.
