BS EN 365:2004 Personal protective equipment against falls from a height.  General requirements for instructions for use, maintenance, periodic examination, repair, marking and packaging gives general requirements for periodic inspection, instructions for use and marking of PPE against falls from a height.  To counter the causes of degradation listed in the introduction, the British Standard states that components should be examined ‘at least twelve-monthly’.  This is sometimes taken to be ‘annually’, although manufacturers of textile products usually recommend inspection more frequently than this.
