Hello, I hope I've posted this in the correct section, I am trying to locate the list of foreign refrigeration qualifications recognised in the UK but am not having much luck and was hoping somebody could help me. I am referring to the one referenced in this paragraph from F-Gas Support RAC 5:


The EC F gas Regulation requires that Member States give mutual recognition to certification of suitable qualifications from other EU countries. This will only apply to a “full certificate” that meets the minimum requirements specified in Commission Regulation EC/303/2008. In some EU countries the existing qualifications already meet or go beyond these minimum requirements. The European Commission will be compiling a list of qualifications that meet the new minimum requirements (not available at the time of writing this document).


Thank you very much for any help :)

Any cert recognised in an EU country is therefore recognised in any EU country so for Ireland it's FETAC Level 5 (Specific Purpose Certificate in Handling F-Gas Refrigerants 5S0108)

Though C&G2079 is pretty much the norm

Hi Jamco

I can not give you a definative answer but here is a quote from DEFRA (uk)



What is the status of a non-UK personnel qualification? The EC F gas Regulation requires that Member States give mutual recognition to certification of suitable qualifications from other EU countries. This will only apply to a "full qualification" that meets the minimum requirements specified in Commission Regulation 304/2008. In some EU countries the existing qualifications already meet or go beyond these minimum requirements. The European Commission will be compiling a list of qualifications that meet the new minimum requirements (not available at the time of writing this document).
