HOME HVACR Regulatory Compliance

Regulatory Compliance

Achieve compliance, enhance the safety of your staff, customers, facility, and equipment, and protect your bottom line.

Regulatory Compliance Solutions:

Compliance for ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52, BS EN 378, and others

Achieving compliance with safety standards such as ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52, and EN 378 is essential in ensuring the safety of your staff, customers, and equipment. For areas of operation where there is a high refrigerant emission risk, a high-performance diffusion or aspirated refrigerant detection system is essential.

CARB Refrigerant Management Program and Compliance

Facilities with refrigeration systems in California may need to comply with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Refrigerant Management Program (RMP) regulation.

EN 378 Refrigeration Safety Compliance

If you are designing, specifying, installing, or maintaining a refrigeration system to comply with EN 378, you will need to know what is required for gas detection and leak notification. This is important to know for occupied spaces, walk-in freezers / cold rooms and machinery / mechanical equipment rooms to ensure safety and environmental requirements are achieved.

EPA Section 608 Compliance and Emissions Reduction

EPA requires proper refrigerant management practices by those who buy or sell refrigerant, technicians, owners and operators of AC and refrigeration systems, and others.

F-Gas Compliance

Bacharach provide a number of low-level refrigerant monitoring solutions for F-Gas compliance: the Multi-Zone and Single-Zone fixed refrigerant monitors, the PGM-IR portable refrigerant monitor, and the cloud based Parasense Refrigerant Tracking and Compliance software.

Refrigerant Leak Detection for HFC Phasedown

The global HFC phasedown is driving many refrigeration and HVAC equipment owners to make significant investments in new systems based on alternative or natural refrigerants to reduce risk as market supply is reduced, refrigerant costs increase, or to avoid costly fines and remediation. Another approach, based on low-level refrigerant leak detection, enables equipment owners to defer investment in new refrigeration systems by finding small leaks and repairing them before significant refrigerant is lost.
