The California Air Resources Board (ARB) implemented its Refrigerant Management Program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from refrigerant usage. This program affects facilities with large system refrigerant capacity and requires facilities with refrigeration systems holding more than 50 pounds of refrigerant to report leak inspections, repair leaks, and maintain records. Additionally, facilities with refrigeration systems holding 200 pounds or more must submit annual reports by March 1st of each year and register immediately using the ARB R3 tool. The annual report must include refrigeration system service, leak repair, and refrigerant purchase information. Facilities with small refrigeration systems between 50-200 pounds must register using the R3 tool by March 1, 2016. Facility and refrigeration system information are required for registration.
