IMI Accreditation Air Conditioning Refrigerant Handler - Reaccreditation


New EU F-gas legislation (517/2014) replaces the 2006 regulation and comes into force from January 2015. The refrigerant trucks and trailers sector has been added to the list requiring training, however no specific requirements have yet been published by the commission.

Important note: training and certification in the 2014 F-Gas Regulation are based largely on the existing requirements in the 2006 Regulation. Existing qualifications remain valid.

This information sheet should be read in conjunction with information sheets covering existing sector specific requirements (RAP5, FP5, MAC5, SCS5 and SV1) available on the Defra website:
