In November of 2016 the EPA updated the Section 608 Refrigerant Management program. This ruling phased in changes over a three-year period. On October 1, 2018 the EPA issued a new ruling that will revise refrigerant regulations, again. Please take the time to submit a comment to the EPA letting them know that such a change could be harmful to the public at large.
