ScotSAC has received the news that the British Standards Institution (BSI) are reviewing a proposal to introduce a new European Standard on cylinder testing which could see the current visual testing every 2 ½ years and hydrostatic testing every 5 years, changed to a visual test annually.
The ScotSAC Board have written to the BSI to voice it's concerns, and to ask them to consider a number of comments. The full letter that has been sent can be seen by clicking the link below.
If you have any specific comments you would like to raise with the BSI we would encourage you to do so directly.
