§ 28-25-13. Reports by authorized inspectors — Certificate — Defective boilers.
When any authorized inspector inspects a boiler or pressure vessel for an insurance company, he or she shall, within a period of twenty-one (21) days, make a report of that inspection on forms approved by the administrator of the division of occupational safety. If the boiler or pressure vessel is adjudged to be in a safe condition and found to conform in all respects with the codes adopted by the code commission under authority of this chapter, the owner shall pay to the administrator the required fee and the administrator shall issue to the owner of the boiler or pressure vessel, a certificate authorizing the operation of the boiler or pressure vessel. This certificate shall be issued in conformity with § 28-25-11. It shall be the responsibility of the authorized inspection agency doing business in this state to report to the administrator of the division of occupational safety the name of the owner or user and the location of each boiler or pressure vessel on which insurance has been refused, cancelled, or discontinued within ten (10) days of that action. Boilers or pressure vessels upon which insurance has been cancelled or refused due to existing dangerous defects shall be reported immediately to the administrator of the division of occupational safety.
