Information about the criterion
The type of refrigerant is marked on an environmental classification plate - a metal plate or an adhesive label - which is either located on the back or inside of the equipment or on the compressor. This is where you usually find an R-designation (R= Refrigerant).
Rapid cooling cabinets and larger units in excess of 1000 litres are exempted from this requirement.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
