F-Gas regulations require the user to keep records, for systems to be leak checked and to ensure that only F-Gas certified companies work on their systems.
We are certified by Refcom and can assist clients to ensure they comply with the F-Gas regulations by:

• Issuing and maintaining the F-Gas register
• Ensuring refrigerant records are updated
• Implementation of refrigerant leak checking programmes

F-Gas Register

Any sized fixed air-conditioning / refrigeration equipment is to be entered onto the F-gas register and records for each individual refrigerant system. The F-Gas register must have:

• a list the make, model number and serial number of the equipment (the details are of the condensing units on splits, VRFs, etc)
• the register is to be available on site (so that any engineer can access it before undertaking works)
• records of each fixed air-conditioning equipment.

As part of a standard maintenance contract we issue and maintain the F-Gas register. For non-contract or new clients we can undertake an initial site survey and issue an F-Gas register.

Leak Checking

The F-Gas regulations require systems containing F-Gas refrigerants to be leak checked periodically depending on the quantity of the refrigerant charge. To comply with the F-Gas regulations the following are the requirements for each refrigerant circuit:

• 3 kg or more (or 6 kg if hermitically sealed) – requires leak checking once per year.
• 30 kg or more – requires leak checking once every 6 months (also if there is a leak detection system already fitted the system only requires to be inspected once a year).
• 300 kg or more – requires leaking checking once every 3 months (also a leak detection system must be fitted and inspected once per year).
