Queensland Licensing

Queensland Department of Mines and Energy 'Hydrocarbon Refrigerants' page

In Queensland, the use of hydrocarbon refrigerants regulated under the Petroleum and Gas (Production and Safety) Act 2004.  Anyone installing, removing, altering, repairing, servicing, testing or certifying the gas system of a device (ie charging, discharging or breaking into the refrigeration system that uses hydrocarbon refrigerants) must hold a Gas Work Licence (Hydrocarbon Refrigerants) to do so.
