Whereas the European Commission is considering measures towards a decreased use of HFCs, an internal survey from AREA, the Voice of European Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heat Pump (RACHP) Contractors, warns against the risk of shortage of contractors trained in the use of low GWP refrigerants. We advise compulsory EU training based on harmonised minimum requirements.

Please find attached the full press release and the results of our internal survey.
