As a general rule, you should inspect your fire extinguishers yourself on a monthly basis. These monthly checks don’t need to be anything significant—just take a look and make sure the extinguisher is in good condition and that the gauge indicates that the canister is sufficiently pressurised for proper usage.

Once a year the fire extinguisher should be service by a trained and quality personnel in a proper workshop that is certified by TÜV SÜD PSB PTE LTD.

You would want your fire extinguisher to be always in proper work order ready to put out fire that occurs in your premise to save life and reduce damage to your property.
