You may be required to comply with this code if you intend 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.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
