On April 1st 2020, the Government of Quebec published their final halocarbon regulation (in French) in the Gazette Officielle du Québec. The amendments include new hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) prohibitions and strengthened refrigerant leak testing requirements for chillers and commercial refrigeration equipment. An English version of the regulation is available here, and on the Ministry's website.

In an effort to get clarification on the new HFC requirements, HRAI, along with AHRI, is requesting a meeting with Ministry staff.  The Ministry is also planning an information session on April 22nd, 2020 in French. AHRI and HRAI are requesting that the session also be held in English.

We will share meeting details of both sessions as they become available. Members are encouraged to send their inquiries to Caroline Czajko at cczajko@hrai.ca
