What that's about is the tank is too old and needs to be inspected/recertified and the valve probably replaced, but since the 5 gallon BBQ tanks are under about $39 new with gas at Menards etc it doesn't make sense to bother with an old tank.

No one is going to refil an older tank that isn't current on the certification, too much risk when there's 5 gallons of highly explosive, highly flammable gas under high pressure in a tank that could fail and take a house out and more.
