NEW EPA 609 Technician Certification Facts
Effective January 1, 2018 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will restrict the sale of ALL refrigerants including R-134a to only EPA certified technicians. This is an expansion of the restriction of CFC and HCFC refrigerants.
The sales restriction covers refrigerants contained in cylinders, cans, or drums, except for the sale of small cans of substitute refrigerants (e.g., R-134a) for use in motor vehicle air conditioners. This sales restriction does not cover refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment or components containing refrigerants.
