  • No certification expiration date

    If N/A is punched, the certification does not expire. All devices must be inspected when first placed into service, but they aren't all subject to mandatory reinspections.

  • Year of non-mandatory inspection

    When a non-mandatory inspection (e.g. inspection in response to a complaint) is performed, a small sticker showing the year of the inspection is placed on the bottom-right side of the inspection sticker. These inspections do not affect mandatory reinspections, which means the device still needs to be inspected by the next inspection due date.
