The Toolbox has changed to become more of a stand alone product. The contents of the toolbox are accurate as of the day it was sent to production. All information (except web links) resides entirely on the toolbox so an internet connection is no longer required. For simplification, a new facility is defined as being registered for the first time on or after October 13, 2018.
