REFCOM issues new industry guidance on F gas​

June 2017

REFCOM, a BESA group company and the UK’s leading F gas registration scheme, is continuing its drive to improve industry standards by issuing new guidance on the supply of F gases.

Designed at the request of the air conditioning and refrigerant industry, the two guides aim to:

  • Help suppliers identify if a customer is authorised to purchase F gases
  • Advise wholesalers of the requirement to check details of who will be installing the gases.

One of the documents includes a quick reference flowchart, helping suppliers determine if they can genuinely supply the gases. Both sets of guidance build on REFCOM’s reputation of delivering the latest industry advise and information, keeping the scheme’s members up to date.

REFCOM has also introduced an extended search facility on its website, allowing suppliers to search either by company name or certificate number to ensure any certificates presented to them are valid.
