Abstract
Instrumentation on Paranal Observatory is currently composed of 18 scientific instruments (operational, in commissioning or in stand by) and 8 technical instruments (test camera, fringe tracking, AO modules, laser guide star facility, tip-tilt sensor). Their implementations and operations started 15 years ago. Over the years enough information to describe their typical behavior was gathered to define a preventive maintenance plan for each instrument and/or a general refurbishment in order to keep their reliability and performance.
