The regulation also affects:

  • any person who installs, services or disposes of any appliance using a high-GWP refrigerant; and

  • refrigerant wholesalers, distributors and reclaimers.

These facilities are also subject to registration and reporting requirements. Facilities whose systems use only ammonia or carbon dioxide as refrigerants are not subject to the rule.

These facilities must register using the R3 tool; facilities with 200 lbs. or more must also submit annual reports by March 1 of each year.
