New on-line IOR Technical Information available exclusively to SAIRAC members.

SAIRAC Members can now join the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR, UK) as an eAffiliate member at a specially discounted partner membership fee. The price for this is just £20 – equivalent to about R385 (normally around £90 per year). This rate is only available to our members because of a partnership which our National Committee have recently agreed with the IOR to share resources and work more closely together.

The benefit of taking up an IOR eAffiliate membership subscription is access to:

  • over 300 technical bulletins to download from the IOR website including Safety Codes of Practice for the four refrigerant groups – usually retailing at £48 each for non members
  • new refrigerant elearning and training materials for alternatives such as carbon dioxide, flammables and ammonia
  • invitations to take part in technical webinars, with recordings accessible when you want to watch them and free Certificates for Professional Development when you participate
  • news and updates on refrigerant developments from the IOR
  • you can book to attend UK-based IOR conferences at member discount rates

SAIRAC members can find more information by logging into the SAIRAC members only area and selecting the IOR tab.
