Stewardship award for ARCtick compliance announced

The Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) and the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) have introduced a new award to recognise ARCtick licensed businesses that are compliant at first audit.

The Environmental Stewardship Excellence Award has been created for Refrigerant Trading Authorisation (RTA) holders whose businesses are found to be fully compliant when audited by ARC field officers.

ARC Chief Executive Officer, Glenn Evans, says the award recognises outstanding commitment to environmental stewardship.

“When field officers conduct a permit condition check – commonly known as an audit – many RTAs are fully compliant, but not all, and this award recognises those who are,” he says.

RTAs who are fully compliant at first audit will receive a digital certificate from DCCEEW and ARC to demonstrate their environmental credentials to customers and clients.

“Field officers check equipment, staffing and paperwork, and not everyone is fully compliant at first, although almost all are after receiving follow-up support by the field officers,” says Evans.

“It takes diligent effort to consistently meet all regulatory requirements, and those who do so are truly hands-on environmental heroes.”
