In this edition of the SpheraNOW podcast, Mark Harbin, Sphera’s senior consultant for refrigerant compliance software and services, sheds light on the rigors and complexities facing companies in the wake of wide-ranging environmental regulatory changes. To put things in perspective, Harbin explains the evolution of refrigerant regulations and what the current regulatory changes mean for refrigerant and environmental managers.
The landscape for refrigerant regulations has changed dramatically with the rollout of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s expanded regulations for documentation, recordkeeping and reporting. In the wake of these changes, facility managers and owners must revisit their methods and procedures for refrigerant-related work, including appliance disposals and refrigerant disposals, which adds a new layer of recordkeeping that companies must now manage. Organizations must be able to prove that their refrigerants are being handled in the right way.
In this episode, you’ll also learn about common misconceptions about refrigerant compliance management and get recommendations on establishing a robust refrigerant compliance program.
Simply put, refrigerant compliance has become a lot more complicated. Robust software solutions and a change in organizational behavior are now, more than ever, key components of a successful refrigerant compliance management program.
