Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Classification of extraction and charging devices in groups

Group 3:
Portable extraction and charging devices linking the air conditioning system to a fixed compressed gas container.
The fixed compressed gas container is charged with refrigerant or refrigerant/oil mixture. The portable extraction and charging device is then permanently attached to the pressure vessel. In accordance with § 3 section 5 no. 3 of the Regulations for Pressure Tanks, in this case the terms "compressed gas container" and "pressure tank" are equivalent.
Charging devices require:
no permit
no checking by an authorised official, since the gas is held in the compressed gas container, which is equivalent to a pressure tank. (Devices for filling refrigerant from these pressure tanks into compressed gas containers that are intended for third-party use, in turn, require licensing and they are subject to checking by an authorised official.)
  Note
The air conditioner service and recycling devices used in vehicle workshops are Group 3 extraction and charging devices which do not require a permit, but which can be operated only by skilled staff. Refer to the manufacturer's documentation for instructions on operating and maintaining these devices.
