    F gas audit



    A few months ago I got my company registration for f gas for a sole trader. This allows you to purchase refrigerant, recover and dispose of refrigerants etc. As my work was mainly sub contract I have used refrigerants and recovery supplied by the air con companys I do the work for.
    A few months later I've received a randomly chosen f gas audit notice.
    They are asking for


    3. Copies of your F-Gas handling procedures on the following topics:

    a) Health and safety issues: including hazardous material handling, the hazards associated with working with F-Gas and the steps taken to reduce/manage these hazards;

    b) A full step by step procedure for leak checking equipment;

    c) Written confirmation of what is done with all recovered refrigerant AND a copy of example consignment note;

    d) A written explanation of how equipment should be labelled: even if you only install new equipment which is already labelled you must be aware of the legislation surrounding this and what must be displayed on ALL stationary equipment containing F-Gas. This can be a photo of the labels you use if easiest;

    e) Any other procedures

    Knowing how to do the work is good but putting together a concise and easily understood explanation of risks,procedures etc is difficult. ( well I'm finding it difficult)
    think ive got writers block🤔.
    Ive been online for a few hours trying to find stuff that I can copy and of course save for any future information requests.
    I let someone borrow my f gas course notes and the guy has misplaced them.

    Has anyone been audited recently and have any suggestions on complying with their requests.
    Any help or advice would be gratefully accepted.

    .

    It is quite common and normal
    The company I work for had a similar audit and it was part of the registration process also.

    Just put a method statement for what you do and don't worry too much.
