Regulated refrigerants and new or used equipment or components may be purchased, sold, or transferred in Manitoba by a trained service technician or secondary distributor.
White goods, which are defined as being a domestic refrigerator or freezer, window air conditioner, etc., are exempt.
Persons who sell or transfer white goods are not required to be certified or have a secondary distributor’s permit because these systems are closed loop at the time of purchase.
Persons selling or transferring refrigerants must keep a record and provide a copy of this record of sale and transfer to MOPIA before the first day of February each year.
The record/form must be kept on file for a minimum of three years and made available to an environment officer on request.
