Complimentary Webinar - Refrigerant Rule Revisions: Is Your Facility Prepared?

Recent amendments to the Montreal Protocol and U.S. EPA refrigerant management regulations in 40 CFR Part 82 will significantly impact refrigerant compliance programs at industrial, institutional, and commercial facilities. The revised international treaty, which is likely to go into effect in 2019, expands its focus from ozone depleting substances (ODS) to greenhouse gases (GHGs) through a phase out schedule for hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) such as R-134a and R-410A, which are some of the most commonly used refrigerants across the U.S. The U.S. EPA has already moved forward with initial changes to their regulations by disapproving the use of certain HFCs in specific end-uses and overhauling the refrigerant management regulations within 40 CFR Part 82, Subpart F. The revised Subpart F provisions contain numerous substantial updates, including extending the requirements to cover substitute refrigerants that do not contain ODS, lowering the leak rate thresholds that trigger repair requirements, adding leak inspection or monitoring requirements, adding numerous recordkeeping requirements, as well as numerous other updates with phased compliance deadlines of 1/1/2017, 1/1/2018, and 1/1/2019.
