ARBS Seminar Series
Tuesday, May 28, 2024
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Room E3.6


ARC administers the ARCtick licensing scheme to minimise preventable emissions of ozone depleting substances and synthetic greenhouse gases. Its success is determined by its ability to deliver value and service. It has a unique perspective and ability to respond to complex issues, and works in partnership with Australian Government, key industry bodies, licensed individuals, manufacturers and businesses in RAC industry. Its primary focus is on driving emissions towards net zero. There are some 140,000 licensed technicians and businesses, and ARC audits 5,000 of them each year for compliance with refrigerant records, equipment and cylinder maintenance, risk management plans and other requirements of their permits. The majority of RTA holders are compliant at audit, but if they have slipped up on anything, it is almost always the paperwork. Field officers help them to be compliant, and in short order almost all permit holders tidy up that paperwork and become fully compliant. Seminar Cost - $10
