The Quebec government has published its final halocarbon regulation. Amendments include new hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) prohibitions and strengthened refrigerant leak testing requirements for chillers and commercial refrigeration equipment. An English version of the regulation is available on the Ministry’s website.
In an effort to get clarification on the new HFC requirements, the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI), along with
the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration, Institute (AHRI), is requesting a meeting with ministry staff. An information session is scheduled for April 22 in French. AHRI and HRAI are requesting that the session also be held in English.
