Part 41 Work Requiring Rope Access

Section 820 Removal from service

It is important that there is a procedure for ensuring that defective or suspect equipment that has been withdrawn from service does not get back into service without inspection and approval by a professional engineer or the manufacturer. Any equipment considered to be defective should be cut up or broken before being disposed of, to ensure that it cannot be retrieved and used again.
