Here in Parma we require that business owners have their fire extinguishers tagged by a certified company, GPS, ABCO, ABC, & so on. Some business owners want to just replace the extinguisher each year with a new one & show us the receipt. That presents a problem because sometimes they can’t produce the receipt for the Eng. Co. inspections & get angry because they just bought the extinguisher. So we just make them get them tagged by one of those third party companies. We use the IFC 2000 edition section 906.2 which refers to NFPA 10. NFPA 2010 section 4.1.3 and the corresponding code commentary section is where we get our language. What is your opinion on this?
