499.86 Examination of materials.
(1) A wholesale distributor must visually examine a medical gas container upon receipt from the manufacturer in order to identify the medical gas stored within and to determine if the container has been damaged or is otherwise unfit for distribution. Such examination must occur in a manner that would reveal damage to the container which could suggest possible adulteration or misbranding.
(2) A medical gas container that is found to be damaged or otherwise unfit pursuant to subsection (1) must be quarantined from the stock of medical gas until a determination is made that the medical gas in question is not misbranded or adulterated.
(3) An outgoing shipment must be inspected to identify the medical gases in the shipment to ensure that medical gas containers that have been damaged in storage or held under improper conditions are not distributed or dispensed.
(4) A wholesale distributor must review records documenting the acquisition of medical gas upon receipt for accuracy and completeness.
