As of 4 July 2009 it is a legal requirement for all companies who install, maintain or service stationary refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump equipment containing or designed to contain F-Gas refrigerants to obtain an F-Gas Company Certificate.

CHAS stands for the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme which was started in 1997 by a group of procurement and health and safety professionals from across the UK in collaboration with the Association of London Government (ALG). CHAS has two main aims:
- To reduce duplicated safety applications for both suppliers and buyers.
- To improve health and safety standards across Great Britain.
Coolwell is a member of CHAS and we have been assessed on our competency in three key areas:
- Adequately managing health and safety.
- Our ability, experience and resources to carry out our work, including key health and safety measures such as, method statements, risk assessments, reference, examples of previous work, training and other resources.
- Monitoring actual work taking place in a safe manner, in accordance with method statements, liaising with clients and contractors, managing a site effectively and supervision.
- Assessing a buyers competence can often be a time consuming process, CHAS certification aims to reduce this, giving the client peace of mind.
