Fusible Link Maintenace

I work for a manufacturing company.  These fusible links are on valves between piping leaving a bulk gasoline storage tank to a dispensing area indoors.  When these fusible links melt they shut the valve and prevent distribution or leakage of gasoline in the event of a fire.

 

What code section and standard would apply? I was wondering what the requirements are to test and / or replace fusible links on fire valves?

 

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
