You may be required to comply with this code if you intend to apply for a refrigerant air-conditioning (RAC) industry permit.
RAC industry permits include:
- refrigerant handling licences
- refrigerant trading authorisations
- RAC equipment manufacturing authorisations
- halon special permits
- restricted refrigerant trading authorisations.
To be eligible for a permit you must demonstrate your knowledge of any standard relevant to work to be carried out under your permit. You must carry out any work under a permit in accordance with the relevant standard.
This standard specifies a simple means of referring to common refrigerants instead of using the chemical name, formula, or trade name. It also establishes a uniform system to be used in assigning the proper reference number and classification to refrigerants. The system for refrigerants classification is defined and physical data of common refrigerants listed.
