For contractors the Regulation is trying to ensure that your staff have adequate qualifications to carry out any tasks that involve the handling of HFC refrigerants. The Regulation also ensures that your customers have an obligation to carry out certain tasks including regular leak checks and the repair of leaks.
The main legal obligations on contractors relate to the training of your staff and ensuring that your staff make every practical effort to minimise emissions from systems they are working on. It is important to note that the success of the Regulation will rely on contractors making sure that their customers do not try and ignore the key legal obligations that are placed on them. This means that contractors must be fully familiar with the rules being applied to end users.
