Free technical advice on F-Gas regulations12 October 2016

Transport operators keen to find out more about the impact of the latest F-Gas Regulations on their fleets can pick up a guidance document from any Marshall Fleet Solutions branch (or call the helpline on 0800 731 1685).

Produced by transport refrigeration company Marshall Thermo King, part of the Marshall Fleet Solutions business, this 2016 document follows recent changes by the EU to the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas (F-Gas) Regulation and confirmation of gas level allowances from January 2017.

George Ralph, MD of Marshall Fleet Solutions, explains that the regulations were revised last year and affect transport refrigeration units containing HFC.

“From January next year, all vehicles in excess of 3.5 tonnes, containing more than 5 tonnes of CO2 equivalent, are now required to have leak inspections and record logs,” he says.

Under the new regulations, all transport refrigeration systems on vehicles in excess of 3.5 tonnes need an annual check by a qualified technician and operators need to hold proof of all F-Gas checks for five years on each unit.
