Manufacturers of RPE state their requirements for the frequency and required level of service.
With most manufacturers, the requirement is that the equipment be serviced by the manufacturer or their authorised approved service agent at least annually, with further components requiring re-certification after a period of years, typically up to six.
This guidance is also found in Australian Standard AS1715 & AS1716 where it states that any repairs or maintenance of RPE including "air supplied RPE, SCBA", complex parts such as "demand or reducing valves" should only be performed by "trained personnel authorized by the manufacturer".
Is your equipment being serviced correctly, by the appropriately trained and authorised personnel? If not, this could lead to a major non compliance or worse, a failure of the systems when in use, which could be tragic.
