Brazil. The new law that mandates the execution of a Maintenance, Operation and Control Plan (PMOC) in air conditioning systems in public and collective buildings was promulgated by 01 / 04 / 2018.
Trane published a statement in which he believes the new measures will benefit both users and building managers.
