Join us as Robb Morrison with Kysor as he reviews the necessary information to prep your technicians for 609 certification!
This rule dealt with service of motor vehicle air conditioning systems, including technician certification.
The Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling Program developed by MACS to meet requirements under Section 609 of the Clean Air Act was formally approved by the U.S. EPA effective August 13, 1992, 30 days after the publication of the final rule. At that time the EPA advised MACS that all individuals trained under the MACS program since its inception would be considered properly trained and certified.
This program is designed to encourage proper equipment use and service procedures. The MACS certification program includes information on HFC-134a and R-12 refrigerant recovery and recycling procedures, so that all technicians certified by MACS for CFC-12 are also considered certified for HFC-134a by the U. S. EPA.
Section 609 certification is good for life under current U.S. law and no re-certification is currently required.
