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.)

We had an exceptional experience with the professional team who serviced my heater and evaporative air cooler. They were punctual, provided excellent service, and even went the extra mile by fixing a broken tile on our roof. Highly recommended for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Surrey air came a few weeks ago and serviced my reverse cycle air conditioner for me. They were able to fit me in quickly, there was good communication and the technician arrived on time. The technician was helpful going onto the roof and providing me photos to give to the body corporate re other units that needed attending to.

These guys had the most reasonable call out fee, they were able to attend to fix our issue the day after I contacted them and there was great communication throughout the whole process from booking to the eta of the technicians. They arrived and promptly set to work, getting our cooling back up and running. I would recommend them.
