EU review of fluorinated greenhouse gas (“F-gas”) policy and legislation

The European Union ("EU") is currently carrying out a review of its laws on F-gases, and is considering new provisions which may have an effect on NI stakeholders. A new EU law on F-gases may well be issued some time in 2022, and this would be directly applicable in NI.

Businesses which use F-gases, including the following, may be affected:

    • Refrigeration (stationary and mobile),
    • Air-conditioning (stationary and mobile),
    • Heat pumps,
    • Fire protection equipment,
    • Electrical switchgear,
    • Metered dose inhalers (MDIs) and
    • Aerosols.
