3-year Refrigerant Handling Licences (RHL) & Refrigerant Trading Authorisations (RTA)

  • From 1 Jan 2018 to 31 Dec 2018 a new option for a three (3) year RHL and RTA will be available – along with the standard permit durations (transition period).
  • From 1 Jan 2019 onwards the default duration for all RHLs (except for trainee RHL) and RTAs will be three (3) years.
  • Costs for the 3 year RTA/RHL will simply be the current annual fee applied over three years.
  • Trainee RHLs will default to 1 year in duration.


If, after the transition period, applicants have genuine concerns or a legitimate reason to seek a shorter permit duration there will be scope for deviating from the default period of three years for full permit holders or one year for trainee permit holders.
