As of 11 May 2004, no person maintaining, servicing, repairing, or disposing of MVAC may knowingly vent or otherwise release into the environment any refrigerant. Personnel servicing/repairing MVAC must be certified and the equipment they use is approved by the USEPA. Additionally, the USEPA administration must have been notified that there is an individual onsite who has been trained and certified and is performing MVAC repair.
