EU 5172014 (Control Of Fluorinated Refrigerants)

European Union Regulation

Commonly air conditioning units, heat pumps and refrigeration systems contain highly potent greenhouse gases known as Fluorinated gases (F-gases).

The European Union has implemented certain legislation that member states need to comply too regarding the regulation of these F-gases. Their aim is to reduce emissions in a bid to help reduce climate change and the effect of global warming.

You can find specific legislation details from the Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 (the “EU F-gas Regulation”) which came into force in early 2015.

THE F-GASES REGULATION (EC) No. 842 / 2006

Guidance on EU F-gas Regulation Update

REGULATION (EU) No 517/2014 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

REGULATION (EU) No 517/2014 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

Implementation & Compliance

Equipment records need to be kept in order with appropriate logbooks that record any work, repairs, servicing or maintenance carried out by certified companies.

Attention should always be paid to any recurring problems. All F-gases need to be continuously monitored and therefore measured to identify if there are any potential leaks. Environment and working areas need to be well ventilated in order to protect residence and public areas.

Equipment parts need to be fully inspected as well as regular maintenance and efficiency checks. If leaks are detected further investigations will need to be carried out. Reparations to damage areas need to be made immediately and a subsequent monthly check thereafter to ensure everything is in order.
