About the REGULATION (EU) No 517/2014
Article 13 - Control of use.
I have a doubt of interpretation of the following sentence:

Point 3.b) Recycled fluorinated greenhouse gases with a global warming potential of 2500 or more used for the maintenance or servicing of existing refrigeration equipment provided they have been recovered from such equipment.

My doubt is:
Does this mean that recycled gas can only be used in the same equipment from which it was extracted?
Or that it can be used in similar equipment?

Dear Pascual,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA) as regards Article 13 of Regulation (EU) No 517/2014 (F-gas Regulation).

The EEA is responsible for the reporting under Article 19 of the F-gas Regulation. In terms of interpretation of the other Articles in the F-gas Regulation, we would suggest you to contact the European Commission - DG CLIMA at the functional F-gas mailbox:

Additionally, since the EU Member States are responsible for implementing the F-gas Regulation, you might find it useful to contact directly the national authorities, whose contacts can be found at -> -> ->[…]/contact_list_en.pdf .

With kind regards,
