AREMA is a foundation member of the Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services Exhibition (ARBS). This major HVAC related event, which is held every two years (alternating between Sydney and Melbourne) has grown into the largest exhibition of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.

AREMA is represented on the board of the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC), which is a Government funded body formed to implement National Licensing and Registration of tradespersons and refrigerant gas resellers within the industry.

AREMA members have provided significant input over the years to the drafting of Industry Standards and other regulation, in consultation with Standards Australia and relevant Government Departments.
