F-Gas Regulations

Many of the F-Gas regulations came into force on the 4th July 2007.

What needs to be done and when?

The European Union's F-gas Regulation No 842/2006 became law on 4th July 2006 and many of the requirements came into force on 4th July 2007 however, some of these requirements are still awaiting clarification from the Commission.

F-gases include all HFC refrigerants, such as R134a, and blends containing F Gases such as R407C, R410A, R404A. If you are handling, recovering, supplying, installing, manufacturing or own equipment containing HFC refrigerants in stationary equipment you now have new legal obligations under the F Gas Regulations.
