Meetings for refrigerant handlers permits

The Government is to hold meetings for those who want to renew their Refrigerant Handlers Permits.

The permits – developed as part of a measure to prevent the release of refrigerant gases – are required by those who service HVAC systems and those who fill gases into refrigeration, chiller or freezer units.

A Government spokesman said that as part of the programme, those who want to renew their permits must attend an “update meeting”.

But they said the ability to hold the meetings was halted by Covid-19 restrictions until now.

The spokesman added that those who want to renew their permits should contact pollutioncontrol@gov.bm to schedule a meeting at the Botanical Gardens Horticultural Hall.

Meetings will be held at 4pm and 6pm on December 14 and 16.

Before the meeting, the applicant will need to contact Ornette Fough, HVAC Instructor at the Bermuda College, to organise a $25 payment and demonstrating that they have worked or studied for three or more years in the refrigerant industry in the past five years.

Applicants will also be required to fill out an application form, to be signed by Mr Fough, and bring the completed form and $220 fee to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to receive a new permit card.

Mr Fough can be contacted at 236-9000 or ofough@college.bm.
