Refrigeration & Air-conditioning Servicing Sector Society” (RASSS) has been formed by a group of like minded people with refrigeration and air-conditioning background for the development and promotion of the Refrigeration and Air-conditioning (RAC) servicing sector including adopting good servicing practices in the RAC servicing sector. RASSS has been registered under the Act XXI of 1860 Societies Registration Act with a registration No. 4367 of 2014 at Chandigarh.
RASSS understand that the RAC servicing sector has been playing a crucial role in the Ozone Depleting Substances (ODSs) phase out programme since India became a Party to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer including in the current Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) phase out programme being implemented by India. Several persons, both individuals as well as agencies, in the RAC servicing sector have been closely interacting with the Ozone Cell, MoEF&CC in the various ODS phase out activities including implementation of projects. While there are associations in the foam and RAC sectors, the two main sectors associated in the ODS phase out programme in India, for appropriately addressing the concerns of these sectors, no association existed for the RAC servicing sector. Recognizing the importance for the need to have an association for the RAC servicing sector for appropriately addressing the concerns (Knowledge, skills, behavioural aspects) of this sector, RASSS has been formed as a registered society.
Presently RASSS has its headquarters at Chandigarh with branches/chapters in Punjab, Maharashtra, Uttrakhand, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. Currently we have a membership of 500+, comprising of both individuals as well as organisations. With the guidelines of United Nations Environment Project and Ozone Cell, MoEF&CC and through the effort of the existing members, we planned to make RASSS an all-India level organisation with vast membership base across country.
