Projects should refer to the following credit compliance guidance when planning for recertification. The table outlines the establishment and performance requirements and details the preferred frequency and duration of each performance requirement. Recertification is based on compliance with performance requirements. For the complete set of guidance, refer to the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Recertification Guidance.
|Credit||Establishment requirements||Performance requirements|
|EAc5: Enhanced refrigerant management||Building components and site infrastructure
Use refrigerants and equipment that reduce overall refrigerant impact of project.
Track amount of refrigerant and date it was added to each piece of refrigerant-containing equipment over recertification performance period. Provide annual leakage rate data for each year of recertification performance period, and update refrigerant impact calculations using information from last refrigerant addition for each piece of refrigerant-containing equipment.
We welcome and value the opinions of our green building community. We are collecting feedback on LEED v4 during the 5th open commenting period. At this time, each USGBC site user may comment on the open credits.
