Accredited auditors are issued with a signed photo identity card. You should ask to see this before an inspection begins.

Flammable refrigerants

Refrigerants used in refrigeration and air conditioning systems in Australia have usually been non-flammable, non-toxic, synthetic greenhouse gases (SGGs) with a high global warming potential (GWP). These include chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Due to the concern over the impact of SGGs in the atmosphere, the use of alternative refrigerants with low GWP is increasing. These include natural alternatives to HFCs such as ammonia, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons. As there are a range of hazards associated with refrigerant gases, they are classified as hazardous chemicals and regulated under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (PDF, 833 KB) and Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 (PDF, 2.53 MB).
