International Chapters

IIAR International Chapters 

Beginning in Latin America in 2009, IIAR has organized numerous Industrial Refrigeration Seminars, offering a smaller scale but similar experience to attending the Industrial Refrigeration Conference to members of local industries who cannot easily participate in IIAR’s main annual event.  Through the efforts of IIAR’s international staff, volunteers and cooperation international allies, IIAR is translating its materials into Spanish and other languages.

The most recent initiative to enhance IIAR’s impact in the global refrigeration industry is to set up and work with IIAR Chapters.  Each IIAR Chapter organizes regular meetings for the local refrigeration industry it represents, encourages participation in IIAR at the local level and collaborate with local government agencies and educational institutions to further the interests of natural refrigerant technologies.

IIAR Chapters are composed of IIAR members who reside outside of the United States.  IIAR chapter members provide education and promote the mission and vision of the IIAR in a country or geographic area.

An IIAR Chapter strengthens the refrigeration industry by promoting the use of IIAR Standards & offering educational opportunities for refrigeration industry professionals in the safe and sustainable use of natural refrigerants and refrigeration systems
