FAQ-62: Schedule for monitored conditions?
Question: When must monitored conditions be repaired?
Answer: The rule does not require that monitored conditions be repaired. These conditions must be recorded so that they can be monitored during future integrity management assessments. They must be repaired if future assessments show changes which cause these anomalies to meet criteria for immediate repair or one-year conditions or in the judgement of the person evaluating the assessment are sufficient to require repair.
