|Under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995, Refrigerant Trading Authorisations are subject to certain conditions. One of these conditions is that the authorisation holder ‘keeps up-to-date records showing the amounts, if any, of refrigerant bought, sold (amounts charged into customer’s systems is not a recording requirement) and recovered (for destruction) during each quarter'. This refers to bulk amounts of refrigerant only (for example refrigerant in cylinders).
It does not mean that records must be kept for refrigerant that is bought or sold in equipment, nor refrigerant that has been reclaimed and then reused.
The reporting templates provide an example of records that could be used for a small business.
The examples provided are only meant as a guide and authorisation holders should feel free to use their own records to suit their own business purposes.
