    Do I need an inspection or a verification: Verifications and certifications are a requirement for new installations and construction, and are different from annual inspections. All new installations must be verified by an ASSE 6030 verifier. Visit our Medical Gas Verifications page for more information.

MTS Medical Gas Inspection Information:

  • Medical Testing Solutions recommends that all medical gas central supply systems and their components shall be inspected on an annual basis by a qualified medical gas ASSE 6040 medical gas maintenance personnel, or an ASSE 6030 medical gas verifier technically competent on the specific equipment installed in that facility.
  • Our state of the art reporting comes complete with a comprehensive detailed listing of all equipment and documented findings. Should any deficiencies be found during these medical gas testing inspections a plan of action to correct each individual notation will be discussed with the responsible staff member, ensuring the facility is up to code and safety compliance. The National Fire Protection Association requires that a medical gas system is “periodically maintained”. Many healthcare facilities perform testing on an annual basis, depending on the size of the building. Testing of the medical gas pipelines and their components ensure the safety and reliability of each system. The NFPA states that an existing system that is not in strict compliance with the code provisions shall be permitted to be continued in use as long as the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) has determined that such use does not constitute a distinct hazard to life.
  • Our team provides a worry-free annual testing service. Medical Testing Solutions credentialed inspectors are very familiar with the rules, regulations and proper procedures in all healthcare environments. You can rest assured that our team will successfully inspect and document all aspects of the installed medical gas systems in a timely fashion.
