Could you elaborate which requirement you are referring to? If it is FIPS140-3 IG [10.3.E](https://csrc.nist.gov/CSRC/media/Projects/cryptographic-module-validation-program/documents/fips%20140-3/FIPS%20140-3%20IG.pdf#page=64) Periodic Self-Testing, it says:
> At security levels 1 and 2, acceptable means for initiating the periodic self-tests include a provided service, resetting, rebooting or power cycling.

Aside from that I also wonder whether it's meaningful to repeat the library integrity check after the library is loaded. While it would be possible that the library file is modified afterwards, that doesn't affect the application behavior.
