Halon Fire System Maintenance

I have inspected the pressure gauge on my Engine Room halon automatic fire system, but have not done any other work on it. Does it require additional preventative maintenance? I know that halon is no longer being produced, and the bottle is still full. The reason for asking is that I will be having a survey done for the insurance company, and I would like to be up to par for it. The matter has not come up during past USCG Auxiliary inspections.
