Who expected a Brexit vote? Clearly, not many expected the UK to vote to leave the European Union. But, here it is.
The question is how will it affect the air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump industry? With EU legislation on refrigerants, for example, driving much of the change and new business for many of you, how will it affect these plans?

Will the UK continue to adopt the environmental legislation once the country leaves the EU? Or, will we develop our own standards?

What will happen with jobs in the sector? Will demand ease off as the markets settle into the new reality of a life outside the EU? 

There is only thing which is certain. The UK is facing a brave new future in which our industry will have to learn to quickly adapt to the world in which it now finds itself.
