Good question, a lot  of depending on how you take care of your equipment. The other thing is how old is your equipment and if it's been upgraded. The manufacturer are using a harder materials, so you could get more dives and longer time between servicing. But if you don't take care of your equipment then it will need serviced. Do you pull your nose protesters back when cleaning. After washing do you put the reg. Back on a tank and blow the air out. The other factor is storage, hanging up on a cool area away from bugs. You wouldn't believe how bad the regulators can be yet still work. Just shows how good the manufacturers did in their designs.

at least annually. more if you dive a lot. I service mine about twice during dive season. I spend a lot of time in chlorine pools and lakes for dive classes. im a divemaster for a local dive shop.

Should have first and second stages of your regulator serviced annually.  Tanks need to have visuals every year and full hydro every 5 years for certification.  BCD depends on how much use and how well it is cleaned/maintained, but should be inspected periodically.  One of my BCD' s had a recall part (seal) which was replaced after bringing into the shop.
