Portable fire extinguishers must be inspected and tagged on an annual basis.
Dry chemical fire extinguishers require a full internal inspection of the unit every 5 years or when they fail the annual inspection. This procedure includes removing and replacing the fire extinguishing agent. These units must be hydrostatically-tested every 5 years.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers do not require 5 year maintenance but must be hydrostatically-tested every 10 years.
