Training and certification for persons handling SF6
Article 10 of the F-gas regulation (EU) 517/2014
The former F-gas regulation 842/2006 required the certification of persons only for the case of recovery of SF6 gas. According to the new regulation 517/2014, persons handling SF6 gas must now be trained and certified. This shall include activities within the scope of:
- Repair works
- Leakage testing
The training contents and/or minimum requirements are governed by the implementing regulation 2015/2066 [external]. Previously acquired expert knowledge certificates shall remain valid.
DILO as a government-approved certification organisation also offers certification trainings in 2017 which comply with the latest directives.
