Revisions to Refrigerant Management Requirements: Tips for Complying with EPA’s Final Rule, Effective January 1, 2017 - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

On November 18, 2016, EPA published a final rule revising the Refrigerant Management Requirements under the Clean Air Act’s Stratospheric Ozone Protection Program. The final rule is effective as of January 1, 2017.

EPA’s revisions update existing requirements and extend certain requirements to equipment containing non-ozone-depleting substances such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Even though HFC’s are often used as replacements for ozone-depleting refrigerants, they are considered a significant contributor to climate change due to their high global warming potential.

The EPA’s revisions are part of a larger strategy to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in response to President Obama’s Climate Action Plan. The final rule also includes more stringent leak detection and repair requirements, new recordkeeping requirements and other changes intended to streamline the program and improve compliance.

Use this in-depth webinar on-demand when William Underwood, seasoned environmental and natural resource lawyer, will discuss the new requirements and the measures your facility should take to ensure compliance.

You’ll learn: 

  • The basis of the revisions and how they relate to efforts to reduce GHG emissions in response to President Obama’s Climate Action Plan
  • The scope of requirements extended to non-ozone-depleting substances
  • How the final changes differ from prior refrigerant management requirements
  • How the final changes may affect compliance management practices
  • Suggested measures to help ensure compliance
