6.2 Manufacturers’ Requirements
In addition to the requirements specified in RP900 owners and operators must also perform inspections in accordance with specific requirements of the manufacturers for the equipment or components that they produce.
Manufacturers often describe what to inspect in regard to components and equipment they produce, as well as how often they should be inspected, and what to look for when inspecting and or testing equipment and components. This information can typically be found in the “Operator’s” manuals. Contacting the manufacturer and requesting this information is important because it can help ensure that any requirements that are specific to a unique manufacturer are not overlooked.
