Every person who is in possession of a refrigeration or air conditioning unit to reclaim it or dispose of all or part of it must, as soon as possible, recover the halocarbons contained in the cooling system of the unit or in its components or have them recovered using the appropriate equipment. The halocarbons recovered must be confined within a recovery container designed for that purpose.
The person or municipality is also required to see that each unit or each of its components so emptied bears a label indicating that it has been emptied of halocarbons, the name of the person who carried out the operation and the name of the enterprise for which the person works, the number of the person’s environmental qualification attestation and the date of the operation.
In the case of a unit having a power rating equal to or greater than 4 kW or a unit designed for non-household use, the recovery of halocarbons must be carried out by means of appropriate equipment whose effectiveness is equal to or greater than AHRI Standard 740-1998 referred to in the third paragraph of section 10 or, in the case of a vehicle’s air conditioning unit, one of the standards referred to in section 31.
