FIBA Technologies’ service facility in Taiwan has received approval from the DOT (Department of Transport) for the renewal of its RIN (Requalification Identification Number), enabling it to requalify high pressure gas tubes.
Tube re-qualifiers must have a RIN to carry out the essential work. They are also required to comply with 49 CFR Subpart C, Qualification, Maintenance and Use of Cylinders, which includes UN tubes.
FIBA holds eight different RIN numbers across its US and Taiwan service centres. These are renewed every five years.
