1.3 PROCEDURE DEVELOPMENT

The owner and user together with the manufacturer should jointly develop and update inspection, maintenance, repair and remanufacture procedures consistent with equipment application, loading, work environment, usage, and other operational conditions. These factors may change from time to time as a result of new technology, equipment history, product improvements, new maintenance techniques and changes in service conditions.

If the manufacturer of the equipment no longer exists or is unable for any reason to provide suitable recommendations, the owner or user should develop inspection, maintenance, repair and remanufacture procedures consistent with widely accepted industry practices.

1.4 PERSONNEL QUALIFICATIONS

Inspection, maintenance and repair procedures should be carried out by personnel qualified by professional trade and verified by widely accepted or recognized standards covering the specific skills or knowledge required.

1.5 DOCUMENTATION

1.5.1 Records

The equipment owner or user should maintain a record-keeping system, which contains pertinent information regarding equipment. Records may include the following:

a. Information provided by the manufacturer.

b. Inspection records.

c. Maintenance records.

d. Repair records.

e. Remanufacture records.

1.5.2 Identification

Unit serial number or identification marking provided by the manufacturer should be maintained on the equipment and recorded in the equipment record. Identification marking should be provided by the owner or user for unidentified equipment which requires the maintenance of records.

1.5.3 History

Changes in equipment status which could affect equipment serviceability or maintenance should be recorded in the equipment record.

1.5.4 Record Identification

Entries in the equipment record should include the date and the name of the responsible person(s) involved in the inspection, maintenance, repair, or remanufacture.
