Despite the fact that the deadline to comply with F Gas was last July, many operatives are still working illegally, which could see those individuals fined if they don’t gain the right qualifications. As of July 2009 all businesses that install, maintain or service stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and/or heat-pump equipment (SRAC) that contains, or is designed to contain F-gas refrigerants must possess F-Gas certification. Last year this extended to the individual operatives who fit this equipment. If you or your business doesn’t comply you could be subject to enforcement and prohibition notices, with penalties for less serious offences up to £5,000. Serious offences can end up in crown court where unlimited fines can be applied. You might think that cutting corners will save money, but this will be a false economy if you get found out. Whether you’re a one man band or a large company employing a number of RAC engineers, everyone who installs, maintains or services equipment containing F-Gas must have received appropriate training.
