The periodic inspection of the installation is used to check the continuity of compliance. This is a requirement of the reference standards, which must be monitored throughout the installation's life.
As the name suggests, the periodic inspections will be used to regularly check that the installation remains compliant, not only with the reference standard, but also with the monitoring/protection of the risks in question. Whether this involves a modification to the installation, to the architecture of the premises or even a change in the types of risks concerned (use, storage, layout, etc.), the inspector from the ANPI Inspection division will highlight anomalies and mention them in his periodic inspection report. This way, the installation will always guarantee optimal protection against the risk and will maintain its compliance, since the inspection is an integral part of reference standard requirements.
All operating tests are an integral part of these inspections, whether they deal with defects, alarms, or transmission, including the triggering of fire scenarios (if applicable), as well as any other tests necessary for the safety of the installation. The results of the periodic inspection are always drawn up in a detailed report.
