and piping, flow directional arrows, and reference to applicable
cleaning and testing procedures.
2.2 CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS. Hyperbaric facility maintenance
for man-rated systems requires effective control of work performed,
from the standpoint of material safety. Such control is achieved
by the establishment of certification requirements for hyperbaric
facilities which strictly monitor and track materials installed,
fabrication and installation procedures used, and personnel
qualifications of the individuals performing the work.
of this manual discusses the certification process for man-rated
hyperbaric facilities and applicable requirements in detail.
