Revisions to Refrigerant Management Requirements: Achieving and Maintaining Compliance with EPA Deadlines

Live Webinar: Tuesday, May 15, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to develop cost-effective, compliant strategies for managing refrigerants that align with changing regulations and more stringent requirements for leak detection and repair.

The EPA revised its regulations for managing refrigerants, and the implementation process is ongoing—with another compliance date fast approaching. Are you in compliance with new recordkeeping requirements and refrigerant sales restrictions? And are you sure you are using certified technicians when necessary, as their role has expanded?

In addition, looming in the not-too-distant future are more stringent requirements for leaking equipment, leak inspections, and equipment retrofit and retirement plans. These impending revisions will impact the operations of employers across the US, and noncompliance can be a costly mistake to make.

The coming months and years will require whole-scale changes to how industrial, commercial, and institutional entities purchase, use, manage, and dispose of refrigerants. Now is the time for these end-users of refrigerants to evaluate their existing programs, policies, and refrigerant management plans, and to prepare for these challenges.

Join us on May 15th when Greg Haunschild, an environmental professional who specializes in refrigerant management strategy for the air-conditioning and refrigeration sections, will explain what has already changed, changes on the horizon, end-users’ options, and the areas they must address to ensure compliance.

You’ll learn:

  • The regulatory changes that went into effect in 2017 and 2018, the changes happening in 2019 and beyond, and the timelines to meet for modifying and upgrading equipment, refrigerants, and compliance programs
  • How the rule changes will affect industrial, commercial, and institutional entities
  • How to review and evaluate critical refrigerant management definitions and terms—and how they apply to your organization
  • Best practices for meeting regulatory requirements concerning:
    • leak detection and control
    • leak rate threshold changes
    • recordkeeping and reporting
    • monitoring
    • equipment repair
    • material substitution and replacement
    • technician certifications
    • refrigerant evacuation
    • chronically leaking appliances
  • How to best implement your refrigerant management program with in-house resources, outside contractors, or a combination of both
