On 5th February 2023, JRAIA participated in Working Group meeting of ICARHMA (The International Council of Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating Manufacturers Association), an international council of eleven global RACHP industry associations held in Atlanta, U.S.

ICARHMA meetings are held in close cooperation with industry associations to discuss positions and responses to global industry-related activities, with a focus on global environmental issues.
The Working Group as interim meeting is being held in conjunction with the AHR Expo in the U.S. in addition to the annual meeting, which is hosted in rotation by each association.

The Working Group meeting this time was held face-to-face, and was attended by 17 participants from the U.S.(AHRI: host), Colombia (ACAIRE), Brazil (ABRAVA), EU (EPEE, Eurovent), Canada (HRAI), Korea (KRAIA), and Japan (JRAIA).

In the meeting, as the emerging issue of the industry, AHRI introduced a trend of new load-based performance evaluation concept, that various organizations have begun to investigate.

Subsequently, members shared information and the progress of their Top 3 issues. In addition, opinions were exchanged on the acceptance and response of each association to the proposed standby power regulation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which had been requested by JRAIA.

The next annual meeting is scheduled to be held on 21-22 September 2023, in Montreal, Canada hosted by HRAI, in a face-to-face format.
