Prev Article 9. - BOILER INSPECTIONNext


44-924.Same; report by inspector; inspection certificate period of validity; suspension. (a) All inspections made by any inspector shall be reported to the office of the chief inspector within 30 days following each certificate inspection upon the appropriate form as approved by the secretary. The filing of reports of external inspections, other than certificate inspections, shall be required whenever such inspections disclose that the boiler or pressure vessel is in an unsafe condition.

(b) If a report filed pursuant to subsection (a) of this section shows that a boiler or pressure vessel is found to comply with the rules and regulations adopted hereunder, the owner or user thereof shall pay directly to the chief inspector the certificate fee prescribed by subsection (b) of K.S.A. 44-926, and amendments thereto, and the chief inspector or the chief inspector's duly authorized representative shall issue to such owner or user an inspection certificate bearing the date of inspection and specifying the maximum pressure under which the boiler or pressure vessel may be operated. Such boiler inspection certificate shall be valid for not more than 14 months from its date unless covered by a variance. In the case of those boilers covered by subsection (b) of K.S.A. 44-923, and amendments thereto, for which the secretary has established or extended the operating period between required inspections pursuant to the provisions of subdivision (5) of subsection (b) of K.S.A. 44-923, and amendments thereto, the certificate shall be valid for a period of not more than two months beyond the period set by the secretary. Certificates shall be maintained on site and available upon request.

(c) Whenever a boiler becomes uninsured or there is a change of insurers, the owner or new insurer must notify the chief boiler inspector within 30 days.

(d) The chief inspector or deputy inspector may shut down or suspend the operation of a boiler or pressure vessel in accordance with the Kansas administrative procedure act if the chief inspector or deputy inspector finds that the boiler or pressure vessel cannot be operated without an immediate danger to the public health, safety or welfare or does not comply with the rules and regulations adopted hereunder. The suspension or shutdown of the boiler or pressure vessel shall continue in effect until the owner or operator demonstrates that the danger has been abated and the applicable rules and regulations have been complied with.  The chief inspector or deputy inspector shall reinspect the boiler or pressure vessel to ensure it is safe and that applicable rules and regulations have been complied with, before issuing a permit to restart or resume operations.
