 Does my harness need to be re-certified?

Can it be re-certified? NFPA 1983 is a standard for manufacturers. In it, it states that harnesses must be re-certified annually. Many end users take this as direction for them to do something. It’s meant for manufacturers to send their products to a 3rd party certified testing facility to ensure that the product that passed last year passes this year. Harnesses are destroyed as part of the certification / re-certification testing process. NFPA requires this annual re-certifying to ensure no processes has changed at the manufacturers. This is also the reason that only an ISO Certified company can produce NFPA certified products.
