At a March meeting, the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Contrac-tors of Canada (HRAC) elected to impose a deadline for its members to comply with HRAC membership -criteria.

These criteria were established in 1998 and include evidence of trades licenses; fuel safety certificates; business licenses; liability insurance; and proof of workers' compensation. "As a result of taking this step, HRAC has been able to develop a credible image in its dealings with government regulars and utilities as well as manufacturers, wholesalers and others in the distribution channel."

June 30 was set as the deadline for all its members to comply with those criteria.
