Summary

With the phase-out of ozone depleting substances there has been growing interest in the application of flammable refrigerants. Following the Kigali Amendment under the Montreal Protocol concerning the phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons, it is highly likely that flammable refrigerants will comprise the majority of refrigerants in the medium to long term. Flammability hazards arising from the use and application of these refrigerants have hitherto been of limited concern to domestic and commercial sectors. Thus, it is essential that stakeholders understand and become familiar with the relevant considerations for handling the flammability hazards that affect their application. These include flammability characteristics, classifications, governing rules such as safety standards and regulations covering the entire lifetime of systems and equipment including transportation, system design and construction and service, maintenance and other refrigerant handling activities. This Informatory Note aims to provide an introduction to these matters.
