What you should know and who can benefit from the service

You can extend your powers if you already have a certificate for entrepreneurs. The document confirms that you know how to handle equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gases, commonly known as f-gases.

You need a certificate extension if you, as an entrepreneur, want to run a business and provide services for customers (not for your company).

Apply if you have a valid certificate for entrepreneurs that entitles you to offer installation services and maintenance or servicing of:

  • stationary refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump equipment

           or

  • stationary fire protection systems.

After replacement, your certificate attests that you have additional qualifications to:

  • repair - damaged or leaking products (or equipment) which have f-gases or the performance of which depends on such substances;
  • decommissioning - withdrawal from use of a product or equipment containing f-gases.

When should you handle the matter

If you already have a certificate and want to replace it with a new one (with a wider scope), you can apply at any time.
