In addition, the Regulation requires companies and other organisations with Commercial refrigeration and air conditioning plant, to ensure that the fluorinated greenhouse gases are contained within the systems. All personnel carrying out works on equipment that contain F-Gas refrigerants must hold either City & Guilds 2079 or CITB Safe Handling of Refrigerants: Category 1 qualifications.

All Coldlink engineers have been accredited with City Guilds 2079 Category I - Leak checking, recovery, installation, service, maintenance of equipment, this is the required standard to meet the requirements of the legislation in order to help companies properly maintain their equipment and stay within the law.

Coldlink has introduced a system to assist companies in meeting the demands for adequate labelling and record-keeping required by the new law.
