REFCOM banks on "short-term" F-Gas amnesty

REFRIGERATION and air conditioning firms required by law to register themselves under the F-Gas regulations are expected to receive a 'short-term' amnesty past the July 4 deadline.
The news comes after DEFRA finally signed an agreement on June 11 appointing REFCOM as the F-gas certification body, a little over three weeks before the deadline for registrations.

The exact position is still awaiting ratification from DEFRA, but the news of a short-term extension if confirmed will come as some relief to the estimated 5,000 companies effectively given 16 working days to register for the scheme.

A REFCOM spokesman confirmed that the organisation already has over 800 requests already on file which can now be processed.

The remaining companies should apply as soon as possible but REFCOM has confirmed that it expects to still be open for applications after July 4.
