(mo/day/year). The expiration date is determined from
the interval and the date last calibrated.

A "restricted use" sticker should be placed on any
equipment requiring special restrictions or precautions

identification number, (2) a statement of the restrictions
that apply, (3) badge number of the individual
attaching the sticker, and expiration date, if applicable,
and (4) the date the sticker is attached.
A "rejected" sticker should be placed on any equipment
that fails to meet acceptance criteria or is suspected of
being defective. This sticker (see example Appendix
A, Figure 3) should include (1) device identification
number, (2) reason for rejection, (3) badge number of
the individual attaching the sticker. A "rejected"
sticker may also be used to identify devices that are
