About fgasregister.com

fgasregister.com is the online home and application portal for the Quidos F Gas company certification scheme, as appointed by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) under the Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases Regulations 2009.

Quidos specialise in certification and accreditation requirements, enabling individuals and businesses to comply with the latest government legislation and laws with the minimum of hassle and inconvenience.

The SRAC industry and the world as a whole now understands that fluorinated gases have a potentially devastating global warming effect when released into the atmosphere. The F Gas regulations have been implemented in order to contain, prevent and thereby reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases.

On 2nd April 2009 the Commission Regulation 303/2008 set out the requirements for a company certification scheme for businesses working with refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump equipment containing or designed to contain fluorinated greenhouse gases. These requirements are in accordance with Article 5.1 of EC Regulations 842/2006 on certain fluorinated greenhouse gases (the EC F Gas Regulation).

Businesses and individuals who are affected by these regulations must obtain a company certificate from the Quidos company certificate scheme or an alternative scheme.

The Quidos application and certification service has been designed to allow compliance within a few simple steps.

You can apply and pay for a certificate online using this website by clicking here. The cost of the certificate depends on the size of the company:
