Tanks are supposed to be checked every time they are filled. Technically, if a tanks cert. has expired they can not refill it, period. Today there are so many different filling stations, most attended by folks who either don't care or were never properly trained you can get around the cert. I make it a habit to always have my tanks, old or new filled at the local filling station which is a major seller of different gases and supplies. They always check my tanks for integrity and also alway purge them which no one ever does any more. Yes, the tanks must be stamped witht the new date.

There are three methods of recertification, but by far the most common is visual recertification, adding five years to your cylinder. If it's been visually recertified, then it'll have "E" plus a new date stamped into the collar.
