Refrigerant capacity certificates issued by BUREAU VERITAS
Since July 5, 2011, all personnel handling refrigerants must hold a certification called "certificate of capacity".
The refrigerant capacity certificate was implemented in order to check the ability of operators to handle refrigerant fluids and to carry out various operations relating to the maintenance and repair of refrigeration equipment. These operations include, among other things, commissioning, leak testing, dismantling, recovery and charging of refrigerants, but also all types of operations for handling these fluids.
The refrigerant capacity certificate is issued to qualified personnel with tools adapted to work on refrigeration equipment.
