Board of boiler rules -- Substantive

Chapter 296-104, WAC

All updates for this rule:


The Board of Boiler is adopting amendments to Chapter 296-104 WAC, Board of Boiler Rules - Substantive for new safety code requirements and a housekeeping change. The boiler rules are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure the rules are consistent with national boiler and unfired pressure vessel safety standards and industry practice. Rulemaking is needed to update existing requirements to ensure the most current standards are in place for proper construction, installation, inspection, operation, maintenance, alterations, and repairs of boilers and unfired pressure vessels that improve public safety. This rulemaking will: Adopt the 2013 (current edition) National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) requirements for boilers and unfired pressure vessels in the state of Washington; Adopt the current revision of the National Board NB-263 standards, rules for national board in-service and new construction inspectors; and Remove an obsolete reference to provide rule clarity and consistency in the rules.699.
