Effective January 1, 2018 the EPA will require service technicians to have Section 609 credentials to service motor vehicle air conditioning systems. The sales restriction covers refrigerants contained in cylinders, cans or drums, except for the sale of small cans of substitute refrigerants for use in motor vehicle air conditioners. The sales restriction does not cover refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment or components containing refrigerants. Autopart International will not sell refrigerant to any service provider without proof of this certificate effective January 1, 2018. The program costs $19 and more details can be found at EPA.gov.
