Revised Refrigerant Requirements: Best Practices for Recordkeeping, Leak Inspections, Reporting, and More - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to develop cost-effective, compliant strategies for managing refrigerants that align with revised regulations concerning recordkeeping, leak detection, inspections and reporting, equipment retrofits, and more.



The EPA revised its regulations for managing refrigerants, and the second of three compliance dates is fast approaching on January 1, 2018. The revised regulations address new recordkeeping requirements, more stringent requirements for leaking equipment, refrigerant sales restrictions, expanded technician certification requirements, new reporting requirements, leak inspection requirements, and equipment retrofit and retirement plans.

Due to the significant changes, environmental managers need to take a close look at the new requirements and develop a long-term strategy for compliant refrigerant management. The development of such a strategy must also account for:

  • What materials can be used and whether those materials will be phased out;
  • How to handle equipment replacement or modification;
  • Worker training and technician certification; and
  • The practical impact of more comprehensive monitoring, leak detection, recordkeeping and reporting.


The next five years will require whole-scale changes to how end-users purchase, use, manage, and dispose of refrigerants. Existing programs and policies must be evaluated to prepare for these impending challenges. The EPA is giving end-users enough time to adjust – if they start the process now. Given that your refrigerant management plans likely need significant modifications to ensure compliance, now is the time to act.

Use this on-demand webinar when Greg Haunschild, an environmental professional who specializes in refrigerant management strategy for the air-conditioning and refrigeration sectors, will explain changes on the horizon, end-users’ options, and the areas they must address to ensure compliance with the new refrigerant regulations.

You’ll learn:

  • The regulatory changes that went or are going into effect in 2017, 2018, 2019 and beyond and the timelines to meet for modifying and upgrading equipment, refrigerants, and compliance programs
  • How the rule changes will affect your organization
  • 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
