Every person must be competent in what he or she does and different levels of inspections demand very different levels of competence. Routine visual inspections require only a short introduction before a new person can take over responsibility. Operational inspections are more technical, but still relatively easy.

In principle, whoever feels that they has sufficient knowledge in these areas can carry out all inspections.
