Any fault records should be reviewed for possible "life to date mismatch".

âge depuis la mise en service
Explanation:
"life to date" means the length of time since the first use of the item till to the date of today.
Retrieving the service or fault records lets you easily trace the usage ovet time. For example oil change labels under a car's hood let you trace date and mileage, makihng it relatively easy to pinpoint a mismatch in pretended total mileage.
In the URL you mention, "life to date" is used for the length of time on which the average is calculated.
You could also use "sur toute la durée de vie" ou "sur toute la vie" if talking of a person.
I did not find an on-line glossary mentioning this meaning for life to date, but I guess this is why you asked the question!
With some words about the subject and the indications above you should find occurrences with google, I simply have not enough context to find one in the domain you are looking for.

Explanation:
Just another suggestion, less specific than the above, but as Didier says, there's a lack of context so it might not be ideal. NOTE: in the phrase in your question it's clear that we're talking about a (database?) record, one of whose fields is called "life to date". If the field name has already been translated, then you have no choice but to match what has already been used.
