Q: Is my Cylinder EU approved?
A: At this time, all cylinders manufactured within the UK and Europe have TPED or PED approval meaning they ARE EU approved. NX and NOS Cylinders are not EU approved as they only conform to DOT standards, and SHOULD NOT be commercially refilled within the EU.
D.O.T. cylinders we're allowed to be imported into the UK using a European Multilateral Agreement but it clearly states that cylinders which do not comply with that agreement should be re-exported back to the country of origin for re-filling (as of June 2006 this agreement has now been extended to 2011 and renamed the M180).

Q. Where can I get get my NON-EU cylinder filled?
A. If you are a non-comercial refiller, you are allowed to refill your own cylinder at home but please ensure refilling is never done once your cylinders test date has expired. Please click this link for home refilling details.
Q: What is the test period?
A: The test period is a term commonly used within the cylinder filling industry. It indicates that a cylinder is tested and safe to fill. At time of writing, an aluminium cylinders test period is 10 years from date of manufacture or retest as stated by the Health and Safety Executive. If you look on the shoulder of the cylinder you will see a date, usually in the MM/YY format.
I.e. 04/04, which would mean that cylinder should not be refilled after the start of April 2014.
Q: Is it possible to Retest cylinders?
A: Yes it is, We can do it and retest costs (£50 + P&P).
However non-EU Cylinders CANNOT be retested or modified to EU spec.

A: As mentioned before, if there is no " n " mark then no, legally we can not. Cold Fusion cylinders DO HAVE the pie mark.
