Major Recordkeeping Requirements for Stationary Refrigeration
EPA regulations (40 CFR Part 82, Subpart F) under Section 608 of the Clean Air Act include recordkeeping requirements that are specific to different persons or companies involved with stationary refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment. This page provides a brief overview of these requirements.
Technicians servicing appliances that contain 50 or more pounds of refrigerant must provide the owner with an invoice that indicates the amount of refrigerant added to the appliance.
Owners or Operators
Owners or operators of appliances that contain 50 or more pounds of refrigerant must keep servicing records documenting the date and type of service, as well as the quantity of refrigerant added.
Additional information for owners or operators of:
- Commercial stationary refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment.
- Residential stationary refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment.
Reclaimers must maintain records of the names and addresses of persons sending them material for reclamation and the quantity of material sent to them for reclamation. This information must be maintained on a transactional basis.
Reclaimers must report to EPA the total quantity of refrigerant sent to them year for reclamation, the mass of refrigerant reclaimed that year, and the mass of waste products generated that year.

EPA has developed a brief fact sheet that explains the recordkeeping requirements for refrigerant retailers and wholesalers.
