Background:

These regulated RQF qualifications are for learners that wish to work in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industries with fluorinated greenhouse gasses.

These qualifications are designed for learners to meet the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2015/2067.

  • LCL Level 3 Award in F-Gas: Install, Service, Maintain, Recovery, Decommission and Leakage Checking of Systems (Category I)
  • LCL Level 3 Award in F-Gas: Install, Service, Maintain, Recovery, Decommission and Leakage Checking of Refrigerant Systems with a Charge of less than 3kg (6kg if hermetically sealed) (Category II)
  • LCL Level 2 Award in F-Gas: Recovery of Refrigerant Systems with a Charge of less than 3kg (6kg if hermetically sealed) (Category III)
  • LCL Level 2 Award in F-Gas: Leakage Checking of Refrigerant Systems (Category IV)

EU Mutual Recognition:

Article 10 of the EU F-Gas Regulation, (EU) 517/2014, requires that Member States give mutual recognition to certification of suitable qualifications from other EU countries.

The conditions for mutual recognition are set out in Article 10 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/2067.

In GB & NI, the EU F-Gas Regulation is implemented by the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2015 (SI No. 310) & NI (SI No. 425).  Logic Certification Limited is a named personnel certification and evaluation body as set out in Part 3, Article 8(1) and (NI Part 2, Article 6(1)) of these Regulations, which relate to the certification and evaluation bodies for the purposes of Article 4 of Commission Regulation (EU 2015/2067 (issue and contents of certificates).
