F-Gas Regulation Training & Certification: Company Certification

Companies involved in installation, maintenance, servicing, leakage checking and recovery should be required to be certified to perform these activities. To obtain a certificate, a company should submit an application that should contain at least the following elements:

  • The number of certified staff members per category, and an indication of the expected volume of activity.
  • A document showing that the necessary tools and equipment are available to the personnel engaged in activities subject to certification.

In addition to that criteria, Member States should remain free to adopt additional criteria, such as the regular renewal of the certificate. As it is the case with personnel certificates, company certificates have to be considered valid among all Member States even if the national requirements are different!
