INITIAL INSPECTIONS BEFORE COMMISSIONING AND PERIODIC INSPECTIONS OF REFRIGERATING SYSTEMSRefrigerating systems - Inspections according to Betriebssicherheitsverordnung

The German Regulation on Health and Safety in the Use of Work Equipment (Betriebssicherheitsverordnung, BetrSichV) classifies many refrigerating systems as pressure systems (Druckanlagen) subject to inspection. The regulation prescribes initial inspections before commissioning, periodic inspections during operation and inspections before recommissioning after changes requiring inspection. Refrigerating systems which fall under the scope of this regulation shall be inspected by an authorised inspection agency (AIA) such as TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH or, in the case of pressure systems with lower hazard potential, a competent person. Pressure systems with CE marking also have to be inspected.
