AIR CONDITIONING REFRIGERANT SAFETY
From 1 January 2015 it will be mandatory for those purchasing refrigerant to have an Approved Filler and/or Handler Test Certificate, in addition to the requirement for those handling or recovering refrigerant to have the same certificate, under the HSNO Act.
This means that in most cases those handling refrigerant for Air Conditioning etc, will need, as part of their qualifications, to have an appropriate Approved Filler and/or Handler Test Certificate.
The consequences of using the wrong type of refrigerant or using the refrigerant incorrectly, can be disasterous and deadly. So it is very important that those handling refrigerant are appropriately qualified.
Masterspec has added these requirements to its Air Conditioning sections as well as to 7600 MECHANICAL GENERAL.
