RE: "The project manager asked me today if there were any regulations for testing them because the lab supplier is only planning on testing the hoods."
If the snorkels are being used to control exposures, CalOSHA expects them to be performance certified annually. I'm not sure if that's an expectation in other states. The code reference is 8CCR5143(a)(5).
Hope this helps,
