IEC AC Standards Proposal

Timely updates to outdated safety standards and building codes are essential to enable a safe transition from climate-warming hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to climate-friendly refrigerants.

Strengthening the F-Gas Regulation to Address Hydrofluorocarbons and Sulphur Hexafluoride

he F-Gas Regulation is a landmark piece of European Union (EU) climate legislation for transitioning away from fluorinated gases such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6). After five years in force, the legislation is now being reviewed for improvement. This NGO stakeholder briefing in response to the public consultation identifies several areas where the F-Gas Regulation requires revision to improve implementation, increase climate ambition as set out in the European Green Deal (EGD), and contribute significantly to the EU climate neutrality target.
