Overview

A person must meet the requirements of 49 CFR Sections 107.805180.211, and 180.212 to be approved to inspect, test, certify, repair, or rebuild a cylinder in accordance with a DOT specification or a UN pressure receptacle under subpart C of part 178 or subpart C of part 180, or under the terms of a special permit issued under this part.

RIN Locator

The Cylinder Requalification Locator at https://portal.phmsa.dot.gov/rinlocator allows you to search for an approved cylinder requalifier. By entering a city/state or zip code, this tool will provide a list of approved cylinder requalifiers including address, contact information, and the authorized testing methods and cylinder specifications for the approved entity.

Note: Any errors in the posted data should be reported to PHMSA via approvals@dot.gov. Updates will be posted within 24 hours and should be visible within approximately 1-2 business days.

Each applicant must arrange for an independent inspection agency, approved by the Associate Administrator, to perform a review of its inspection or requalification operation. The person seeking approval must bear the cost of the inspection. If the inspection performed by an independent inspection agency is completed with satisfactory results, the applicant must submit a letter of recommendation from the independent inspection agency, an inspection report, and an application containing the information prescribed in Section 107.705(a) and 107.805(c)(1)(2)(3)(4). A blank application has been attached for your convenience.
