The EPA and the Chemical Manufacturer’s Association (CMA) has provided an updated overview of leak repair, or EPA requirements. When an appliance with a full charge is discovered with a leak, owners and operators must take action within 30 days. Since these trigger rates are getting more strict, it’s important to have a trusted repair company on speed-dial. IRS will work quickly to avoid fines for your company and keep your refrigeration system within the 30-day compliance window of CMA guidelines.
