This single unit qualification has been developed to provide individuals, working within an automotive repair and servicing environment, with the required skills and knowledge required to meet the European Union fluorinated greenhouse gas F-gas regulations EC 842/2006 and the later Annex EC 307/2008 which came into force on 4th July 2010.
