Default Testing of Scuba tanks

Hi I thought this might be of interest as this has been mentioned on another forum.
There is a proposal to introduce a new document- BS EN ISO 18119 Transportable gas cylinders – Periodic inspection and
testing of seamless cylinders- which would require scuba cylinders to be visually inspected and stamped annually between the 5 year hydraulic tests instead of at 2.5 years as present.
This will presumably affect all those who fill off scuba cylinders and perhaps others.
I am not a member of any other airgun forums but have not seen this discussed here
Are the airgunning community aware of this?

It's a proposed replacement for the existing standard, from Europe.......

Despite initially receiving a ‘no’ vote by other countries and the UK, BSAC has now been informed that the new standard BS EN ISO 18119* is likely to replace BS EN 1968:2002 and BS EN 1802:2002.

Another few quid a year out of our pockets. I'd guess the diving community knew about it and BSAC seem on the ball but it was the first I'd heard about it, thanks for posting

Does this only cover bottles for underwater use or all bottles? Obviously, currently, land use bottles with their different fitting have a longer test than sub aqua.

Default Maths

Save £3 a week and put it in a tin......you'll have £156 at the end of the year.
3 ltr 300 bar filling kit ( with fill adaptor & hose ) costs £139.
Buy a new one every year....have £17 to play with....and you don't have to worry about laws !

Interesting logic. Take it one step further and sell your one year old cylinder every year to part fund your new one

That still doesn't answer my original question, if this comes in, is it going to be for surface bottles?

It probably doesn't affect us. Then again it might and we will all have to visit little Kev .
