Normally its every 160,000miles or 10years from new - it is in itself known to be a fairly long time to run it on the same belt..where then its best advised to bring replacement intervals down to say every 70-80,000miles thus eliminating any potential for premature failure or the belt or original pulleys that particular belt runs ie: tensioner or water pump failure etc..which in turn can be quite expensive if the belt failed or slipped off as result causing engine damage.I do hope this helps
