Australia’s most comprehensive regulatory guide to flammable refrigerants will be officially launched at CCN Live 2020 today.

Known as the Flammable Refrigerants Review Project, it is a great resource for Australia’s HVACR industry as it covers laws and regulations for every state and territory in Australia.

The project provides industry with a navigational tool to help make the transition to low GWP refrigerants.

A presentation outlining the project will be delivered at CCN Live by Weir Legal & Consulting managing director, Bronwyn Weir.

She will join an impressive line-up of speakers to discuss many of the challenges facing industry as a result of the global transition.

CCN Live 2020 will begin at 12noon with an overview of the current refrigerant landscape by Refrigerants Australia executive director, Greg Picker.

He will be followed by Sally North, West Australia’s director of Worksafe Service Industries. North helped develop a national work health and safety position paper on flammable refrigerants.

She will reference incidents that have occurred in recent years and how the government has responded.

North will also talk about upcoming legislative changes about to be introduced relating to flammable refrigerants.

Another important issue in need of immediate attention is risks associated with the recovery of flammable refrigerants at end of life.

This issue will be addressed by Refrigerant Reclaim Australia general manager, Kylie Farrelley.

A panel discussion will follow the presentations to cover more specific areas of concern. One of the guest panellists is Krista Weymouth, lead researcher on the Flammable Refrigerants Review Project.

Finally, it wouldn’t be CCN Live without the HVACR Leadership Awards.

This year’s sponsors – ABB, Daikin, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioners Australia, Temperzone and Refrigerant Reclaim Australia – will announce the winners.

Winners across eight categories will be announced after the presentations. To watch the free, virtual event go to
