Surrey welcomes new Arctick license standard

Welcome announcement from VBA

The Victorian Building Authority announced in its August eBulletin that NOLS (National Occupational Licensing Authority) has released Decision Regulation Impact Statements (RISs) for the Plumbing & Gasfitting and Refrigeration & Air Conditioning occupations.

The RISs outlines the preferred approach to national licensing and follow the guidelines of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in the Best practice regulation guide (2007). It has been approved for release by the Office of Best Practice Regulation. The Government will make the final decision on NOLS later in 2013.

Better heating and cooling services for consumers …

Says Jason Schultz from Surrey Air, “To finally see our industry forging its own identity with appropriate national licensing is very encouraging. This will give our niche HVAC industry momentum to increase standards and deliver strong services via a uniform national approach. Strong national standards will ultimately benefit the HVAC consumer market in Australia.”

The industry tick of approval

Under the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning RIS, the main standard will be the Commonwealth Arctick license number. Surrey Air’s Arctick license number is AU 12201.

The Arctick license requires that any person working with ozone-depleting refrigerants and undertaking work to install, service, or repair an air conditioner, or any other refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, must be a licensed individual under the relevant Commonwealth regulations.

Montreal Protocol is still a priority

This will also continue to ensure that the government meets its international obligations under the Montreal Protocol to phase out ozone-depleting gases. (Please read out a news item on complete HCHC Refrigerant Phase Out by 2016.)

I discovered my central heating had failed late Tuesday night. My dealings with Surrey Air staff on Wednesday morning were exceptionally swift, courteous and professional. They had my system back online by lunchtime! It was clear that the office staff including Claire and the field staff took responsibility for fixing my problem and communicating quickly ,and thoroughly, vital information. They provided me with the opportunity to discuss, with Jason (the boss) the potential consequent scenarios following the repair. and solutions to each. I cannot recommend this team highly enough. Professional, Practical, Available and Affordable service I need more stars to reward them all
