Service Description

If you install systems with fluorinated greenhouse gases, check them for leaks, service them, maintain them or recover the gases, you will need a new certificate of competence after July 4, 2009 so that you can continue to carry out your activities. This is provided for in the Chemicals Climate Protection Ordinance, which came into force on August 1, 2008 and is based on the European F-Gas Regulation.

This concerns the following activities:

  • Activities on refrigeration systems, air conditioning systems and heat pumps,
  • Activities on equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gases as solvents,
  • Activities on fire protection systems and fire extinguishers,
  • activities on high-voltage switchgear and
  • work on air conditioning systems in motor vehicles.

In order to obtain a certificate of competence, you must pass a theoretical and practical examination.

Upon application, an exemption from the requirement for technical and manual training can be granted if the applicant can prove that they are comparably qualified.
