Refrigerant Management Program (RMP): Service Technician Form 2014

NOTICE TO REFRIGERATION SERVICE TECHNICIANS & CONTRACTORS

 
PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY BELOW.

Service Contractors Can Help their Customers with Regulatory Compliance:

Facilities that you service may need to register and report to the California Air Resources Board by March 1, 2014. Considering that facilities who fail to register and report are subject to the penalties specified by State law, including, but not limited to, up to $10,000 per day (Health and Safety Code, section 42402), your customers are likely to appreciate any efforts you make to help them with compliance.

California’s Refrigerant Management Program (RMP) 2014 Deadline Reminder:

Refrigeration service providers should be aware that facilities with refrigeration systems using a full operating charge between 200-2,000 lbs. of refrigerants (for example, R-22,R404a, and R-410a) must register and report to California Air Resources Board by March 1, 2014. Facilities with larger refrigeration systems (using 2,000 lbs. or more of refrigerant) should have already registered, and must submit their annual report and fee by March 1, 2014. Facilities such as supermarkets, cold storage warehouses, food processing plants, industrial cooling operations, and others are affected by this rule. Systems charged with ammonia or carbon dioxide are not affected by this regulation, nor are air conditioners used exclusively for comfort.

As with the federal rule, the California regulation requires installers and servicers of refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment using any amount of high-global warming potential refrigerants to follow best service practices, such as proper U.S. EPA certification, repair leaks prior to adding refrigerant, and proper recovery and disposal of refrigerants.
