Recognition of qualifications under Regulation (EU ) No 517/2014

All requirements regarding the certification of companies and service technicians arise from Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases and the implementing regulations.

In accordance with Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases and Commission Implementing Regulation (EC) 2015/2067 establishing, pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council, minimum requirements and the conditions for mutual recognition for the certification of natural persons as regards stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment, and refrigeration units of refrigerated trucks and trailers, containing fluorinated greenhouse gases and for the certification of companies as regards stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment, containing fluorinated greenhouse gases, certificates obtained by service technicians in any EU country are recognised in all EU countries.

There is no special procedure for the recognition of certificates. No verification is prescribed.


The competent authority may verify the compliance of certificates with the EU regulations on the request of the certificate holder or the equipment operator wishing to benefit from the services of a company from another Member State country.
