F-Gas Regulations: what the refrigeration industry needs to know

What the F-Gas Regulations will mean?

The refrigeration and air conditioning industry is changing. The latest round of F-Gas Regulations will bring about a seismic shift in the way the industry operates. The headline charge towards lower GWP refrigerants will lead to the introduction of new equipment, new refrigerants and new working practices. But are you ready for this?

How the F-Gas Regulations affect manufacturers

It’s no good burying your head in the sand. Manufacturers of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment – and products – need to be fully up to date with what’s happening.

Your customers want the latest news on this. They also want equipment to be as environmentally friendly as possible and legally compliant. Their clients are demanding this. As manufacturers you will have to ensure that you are up to speed with all the changes. More than this, you will have to ensure that your customers know that you are aware and acting on this.

There are also your distributors and the installers to keep in the loop. Do they know which refrigerants will be phased out and their suitable replacements? Do they know their R404A from their R32?

Phasedowns, equipment bans and new maintenance practices are all on the way. Do you reclaim or recycle? What about recovery? How do you tell the people that matter to your business?

Public relations

The F-Gas Regulations’ deadlines are arriving thick and fast. Official advice on the new regulations can be a minefield to work your way through.

Isn’t it time you put together a simpler message for your customers and suppliers?
