Who needs a refrigerant handling licence?
Any person who handles refrigerant or works on RAC equipment must hold a refrigerant handling licence. Handling a refrigerant means doing anything with the refrigerant, or a component of RAC equipment, that carries the risk of its emission, including:
a) decanting the refrigerant; or
b) manufacturing, installing, commissioning, servicing or maintaining RAC equipment, irrespective if whether or not refrigerant is present; or
c) decommissioning or disposing of RAC equipment where refrigerant is present.
