New Refrigerant Selection Guide

The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) has released a new guide to refrigerant selection, Guidance Note 37. This guide will provide a detailed overview of points to consider when selecting refrigerants, especially in regards to trying to meet net-zero targets.

The new Guidance Note is particularly important to equipment owners and operators making purchase decisions that influence the selection of refrigerant and equipment being installed. The new guide recommends using a refrigerant with the lowest GWP possible. The IOR recommends that systems and equipment should only be installed using refrigerants that have a GWP of more than 300 (Medium/high GWP) when a low-GWP option with better efficiency isn't available.

This means that systems using high GWP refrigerants shouldn't be installed unless there is no lower GWP alternative available. If current equipment using a refrigerant with a GWP greater than 300 is currently being used, a plan should be made to replace the system at the end of its life with a lower GWP refrigerant.

With the ongoing phase-down on HFC refrigerants having an impact on the availability

of higher GWP refrigerants, as well as some bans under national regulations, there are good commercial and environmental reasons to move to low GWP refrigerants.

Petition For Access to Free Standards

With the steeply increasing cost of running a business, access to free or affordable Australian Standards would be a welcome change for many business owners.

A recent Federal House of Representatives petition for affordable Australian Standards has received support from the Master Builders Association. Currently, Australian Standards are restricted to tradespeople and organizations through a private entity. These standards are becoming increasingly expensive and access increasingly restrictive. They are essential to ensure the safety and operability of our services,

sometimes multiple standards are required for one job. Many of the people requiring access to these standards are sole traders who cannot support these overheads.

The petition requests stronger oversight and mandates to the organizations controlling access to Australian Standard to make them readily available for free or at a reasonable cost to all people who require them to perform their duties.

The petition has received over 22,500 signatures and will soon be presented in the House of Representatives. We hope the petition will see a sustainable change for small business owners.
