After the inspection and revision of LPG tanks, it is important to keep the relevant documents to confirm the actions carried out and the condition of the tank. Here is a list of some of the documents that should be kept:
- The inspection and revision protocol: This should include details of the actions carried out, the dates, the name of the company or person responsible for the inspection, an assessment of the condition of the tank and any recommendations or comments.
- Certificates and tests: If strength tests, leakage tests or other laboratory tests were carried out during the inspection or revision, there should be appropriate certificates or reports to confirm the results of these tests.
- Documenting photographs: It is advisable to take photographs during the inspection and revision that show the condition of the tank, marked areas, repairs or replacements made during these activities. The photos can serve as evidence and aid in future inspections.
- Inspection reports and assessments: If more detailed tests, such as structural assessment, wall thickness testing or weld inspection, were carried out during the inspection or revision, there should be reports or assessments documenting the results of these tests.
Evidence of replacement or repair: If, during an inspection or revision, the need to replace or repair any components of the tank is identified, documentation should be retained to confirm the actions taken, such as invoices, replacement records or confirmations of repairs carried out.
Keeping these documents is important as it allows you to track the history of LPG tank inspections, revisions and repairs. This makes it easier to keep the tank in proper condition, meet safety requirements and monitor any future changes or damage.
