Important news for owners of PST Cylinders
Released on: 1/29/2015
(DNW) – The US Department of Transportation yesterday renewed the PST cylinder permit 9791 through the year 2018. Many industry members had been concerned about this permit expiring due to the large number of PST cylinders currently in use in the dive industry.
According to officials with PSI-PCI, who spoke directly with the Associate Director at USDOT, the permit has been renewed. Had the permit not been renewed, all cylinders marked with that specific permit number would no longer have been authorized for use and would have needed to be immediately removed from service. The USDOT action today eliminated that situation.
