More specifically, regulations 29 CFR 1910.255(e) requires that a 
periodic inspection of resistance welding equipment be made by 
qualified maintenance personnel and a certification record generated 
and maintained. The certification shall include the date of the 
inspection, the signature of the person who performed the inspection 
and the serial number, or other identifier, for the equipment
