10. A person who services, repairs, converts or dismantles components of a refrigeration or air conditioning unit or fire extinguisher that contain halocarbons must first recover the halocarbons into a container designed for that purpose using the appropriate equipment.
The same requirement applies where the person repairs or dismantles a pressurized halocarbon container.
In addition, recovery of the halocarbons of a refrigeration or air conditioning unit, other than the unit in a vehicle or a unit designed for household use, must be carried out using the appropriate equipment meeting AHRI Standard 740-1998, Refrigerant Recovery/Recycling Equipment, published by the American Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute.
The disconnecting of a fire extinguisher cylinder where the operation is performed without causing a halocarbon leak is excluded from the application of the first paragraph.
