What is ACRIB?

Trade associations and professional institutes operating in the RACHP sector are brought together under the ACRIB umbrella to represent all aspects of the RACHP industry.  ACRIB's scope includes manufacturers, contractors, scientists and a range of end users in building services, construction, cold storage, transport, distribution, industrial and commercial refrigeration, and heat pumping.

The aims and objectives of ACRIB are pursued through committees and working groups, all of which report to the Board. The three main areas of activity are: environment and energy, education and training and technical safety and standards.  Its activities include:

  • Operating a widely recognised safe refrigerant handling certification scheme as part of the Engineering Services SKILLCard scheme
  • Maintaining active membership of EPEE, the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment.
  • Working closely with employers, the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, Department for Communities and Local Government and City & Guilds on qualification development and quality assurance matters
  • Responding to issues such as system efficiency and safety, performance standards, food safety and safety at work
  • Advising UK Government on the implementation of regulations and legislation through regular liaison with DEFRA and the Environment Agency.
