In order to address this Brexit implication, a programme was established under Irish legislation which provides for holders of UK certified F-gas certificates and attestations, to obtain a new Irish certificate/attestation from the Environmental Protection Agency. These Irish F-Gas certifications/attestations will be recognised in Ireland and other EU Member States.
This programme has now been extended. This extension allows for:
* continued recognition of UK personal training certificates/attestations in Ireland until 11 p.m. on 30th June 2021, provided the UK certificates/attestations were issued prior to 11 p.m. on 31st December 2020.
* the opportunity to apply to the EPA for an Irish personal training certificate or attestation in respect of the same activity awarded by a UK certification body provided that
* the UK certificate/attestation was issued before 11 p.m. on 31st December 2020; and,
* applications to the EPA are submitted before 11 p.m. on 30th April 2021. The application process is described below. There is no cost and it does not involve re-training.
