Chiyoda, Tokyo: Mitsubishi Electric has announced releasing a free, CPD-accredited guide ‘Working with the F-Gas Regulations’ to help those involved in the air conditioning industry understand the how the regulations will affect them and their equipment.

The guide, the announced revealed, looks at the background to the regulations and why they have come about; how the phase down is planned to operate and what this means for both air conditioning systems and their owners.

The overriding objective of the legislation, the announcement highlighted, is to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-Gases) that is used predominantly in the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors, which make a significant contribution to climate change.

The guide, therefore, the company said, looks at the strengthening of obligations on leak checks, repairs, recovery and training, and includes details of bans on certain F-Gases in some applications.

“There is a lot being said about refrigerants and F-Gas at the moment, so we wanted to produce a useful guide for anyone involved in the air conditioning industry,” explained Graham Temple, Marketing Manager for the Mitsubishi Electric’s range of split air conditioning systems. “People need to be aware that there are some actions that are imminent but there is also plenty of time to plan for future milestones in the F-Gas phase down process.”

He added, “We want to help installers, consultants and building operators understand how the F-Gas Regulations will affect them both now and into the future.”

The company said that the free CPD guide can be downloaded here.
