Recertification and Repair

It is a legislative requirement for all safety equipment, including fall protection systems that have been installed in accordance with the recommendations of EN 795:2012 and CEN TS 16415:2013 to undergo periodic examination by a competent person to certify that they remain compliant and are safe to use.

The complexity and frequency of certification regimes vary according to legislation, Standards / Norms and / or the manufacturer’s specification. Additionally, it is important that each certification regime takes into account how often the equipment is used and the environment it is used in. The following is a guideline to the frequency of inspection and / or testing of fall protection equipment.

  • Personal Protective Equipment – minimum once every 6 months
  • Abseil/Roped Access Points – minimum once every 6 months
  • Fall Arrest/Fall Restraint Systems – minimum once every 12 months
  • Ladder Restraint Anchors - minimum once every 24 months
