Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas

BREXIT implications for ODS and F-Gas contractors

Important notice for individuals and companies certified by UK bodies to operate with Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and Fluorinated Gas (F Gas).

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, ODS and F-Gas certificates and training attestations awarded by a certification body in the UK will no longer be recognised within the remaining EU member states. The default date for the UK’s exit from the EU is now 31 October 2019.

If you are affected by these changes and want to remain certified after a no deal Brexit, you must take action as set out in this notice: BREXIT FGas Notice.​ The relevant regulations can be found here: SI 367 of 2019.
