Revised Refrigerant Requirements: End-User Best Practices For Recordkeeping, Leak Inspections, Reporting, And More

Webinar: ID# 1025125
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
In 2016 the EPA revised its regulations for managing refrigerants. The revised regulations address new recordkeeping requirements, more stringent requirements for leaking equipment, refrigerant sales restrictions, expanded technician certification requirements, new reporting requirements, leak inspection requirements, and equipment retrofit and retirement plans.

Due to the significant changes, environmental managers need to take a close look at the new requirements to discern their applicability and develop a long-term strategy for compliant refrigerant management. The development of such a strategy must also account for:
  • What materials can be used and whether those materials will be phased out
  • How to handle equipment replacement or modification;
  • Worker training and technician certification
  • The practical impact of more comprehensive monitoring, leak detection, recordkeeping and reporting.
The next five years will require whole-scale changes to how end-users purchase, use, manage, and dispose of refrigerants. End-users must evaluate their existing programs and policies and prepare for these challenges.

The EPA is giving end-users enough time to adjust if they start the process now. Given that your refrigerant management plans likely need significant modifications to ensure compliance, now is the time to act.

Join us when Greg Haunschild, an environmental professional who specializes in refrigerant management strategy for the air-conditioning and refrigeration sectors, will explain changes on the horizon, end-users’ options, and the areas they must address to ensure compliance with the new refrigerant regulations.

You’ll learn:
  • The regulatory changes going into effect in 2017, 2018, 2019, and beyond, and the timelines to meet for modifying and upgrading equipment, refrigerants, and compliance programs
  • How the rule changes will affect end-user organizations
  • How to review and evaluate critical refrigerant management definitions and terms—and how they apply to your organization
  • Best practices for meeting regulatory requirements concerning:
    • leak detection and control
    • leak rate threshold changes
    • recordkeeping and reporting
    • monitoring
    • equipment repair
    • material substitution and replacement
    • technician certifications
    • refrigerant evacuation
    • chronically leaking appliances

  • How to best implement your refrigerant management program with in-house resources, outside contractors, or a combination of both
