Dear Valued Customer,
Effective January 1, 2018, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requiring that the purchase of 30 lb cylinders of R134a and 10 lb. cylinders of R1234YF require an AC certification card (609 certification for automotive) or a signed resale agreement if the purchaser is purchasing the refrigerant for eventual resale.
We also require HVAC purchasers to produce an AC certification (608 certification for HVAC) for end users or sign a resale agreement if the purchaser is purchasing the refrigerant for eventual resale. If you are an end user, then you must show evidence that at least one technician within your company is properly certified. If you are a wholesaler that sells any refrigerant for resale you are legally responsible for ensuring that your customers fit into one of the categories of allowed purchasers under the sales restriction. Although the regulation does not specify precautions that wholesalers must take to verify the intent of individuals purchasing refrigerant, EPA recommends that wholesalers obtain a signed statement from the purchaser indicating that he or she is purchasing the refrigerant only for eventual resale to certified technicians.
If you are purchasing refrigerant for resale purposes from Lenz Sales & Dist. Inc. please fill out the attached Lenz Sales & Dist., Inc. Resale Agreement and it will be sent to email@example.com.
**R134a 12 oz. cans and R1234YF 8 oz. cans are not subject to this sales restriction**
Changes with R134a 12 oz. cans - EPA is now requiring that small cans of R134a packaged after January 1st, 2018 be outfitted with self-sealing valves. EPA is not restricting the sales of the old style R134a cans, and therefore they can be purchased and sold with no issues until current stock piles are sold out.
