About This Course:
Alert: The EPA is close to finalizing proposed updates to the refrigerant management requirements under the Clean Air Act’s Stratospheric Ozone Protection Program.

On November 9, 2015, the EPA proposed a rule that would extend existing requirements to certain non-ozone-depleting substances such as Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC’s). Even though HFC’s are often used as replacements for ozone-depleting refrigerants, they are considered a significant contributor to climate change due to their high global warming potential.

The EPA’s proposal is part of a larger strategy to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in response to President Obama’s Climate Action Plan. The proposal also includes more stringent leak detection and repair requirements, new recordkeeping requirements and other changes intended to streamline the program and improve compliance.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by seasoned environmental and natural resource lawyer William Underwood. He will outline the proposed requirements in practical terms and reveal the measures your facility should consider to ensure compliance.

Learning Objectives:
  • The basis of the proposal and how it relates to efforts to reduce GHG emissions in response to President Obama’s Climate Action Plan
  • The scope of current requirements proposed to be extended to non-ozone-depleting substances
  • How the proposed changes differ from current refrigerant management requirements
  • How the proposed changes may affect compliance management practices
  • Suggested measures to help ensure compliance
