Italy’s Ministry of the Environment uses accredited certification to manage competence of installation and maintenance engineers.
Accredia, in support of the Ministry of the Environment, has set simpler regulations for the use of Fluorinated gases, thereby reducing costs for business and reducing CFC-gas emissions in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol. The Regulations (CE) 842:2006 have been simplified for certifying bodies, technical personnel and training organizations who deal with the installation, maintenance and repair of fridges, freezers, air-conditioners, heat pumps, anti-incendiary systems and fire extinguishers. Competent bodies are designated by the Ministry of the Environment which require a certificate of accreditation. (Italy)
