ASERCOM tackles the time for change

Nearly 80 participants met in Brussels on 23 and 24 January 2020 for this year’s annual general meeting of ASERCOM. The changes in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry resulting from the F-Gas and Ecodesign Regulations were the central topic of the event.

ASERCOM, the association of European manufacturers of components for refrigeration and air conditioning, once again invited its members to the annual general meeting in Brussels this year. Just as the intensive exchange in the working groups, the board meeting and the general assembly were held under the overarching theme of 'Time for Change'. 

The central topic of the two days was the transformation of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry, triggered primarily by the F-Gas Regulation. The main focus of the association's general meeting was closely linked to this complex subject area. The discussions therefore focused on compliance with and the consequences of the F-Gas Regulation, the new stage of the Ecodesign Regulation 2015/1095 for condensing units and process chillers.

In addition, the upcoming EU Cybersecurity Act, which could potentially have a major impact on the HVACR industries, was discussed in detail.

'The time for change is now and today,' explained ASERCOM President Wolfgang Zaremski. 'It is time for important changes and setting the course for the future. We as ASERCOM do not only want to accompany this era, but to actively shape it.'

The ASERCOM working groups reviewed their work of the past year and provided an outlook on planned work topics. The proven expert talk at the end of the event once again provided an opportunity to discuss the previously touched upon topics such as refrigerant availability, natural refrigerants and also the issue of shortage of specialists. 

All presentations held at the annual general meeting 2020 can be found on the ASERCOM website.
