Regulation on fluorinated greenhouse gases and repealing Regulation (EC) No 842/2006.
About the F-gas Regulation:
The Kyoto Protocol includes greenhouse gases; Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and three types of fluorinated greenhouse gases which also goes under the name 'F-gases'; Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The EU has developed its own regulations to reduce emissions of F-gases'.
EU Regulation (EC) No. 842/2006 on certain fluorinated greenhouse gases was adopted on 17 May 2006, but not until the 4th July 2007 came the provisions in force in the EU. On 6 May 2010 came the Regulation and associated under regulations in force in Norway through a referral regulations in product regulation.
The main impact of the Regulation is requirements for leakage control and proper handling of refrigerants in equipment containing HFCs, PFCs and SF6 gas. It also introduced requirements for certification of personnel and companies that are in contact with the gases, and import restrictions on certain types of products and equipment. The purpose of the Regulation is to reduce emissions of strong greenhouse gases HFCs, PFKer and SF6.
