Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety

This inspection and certification program plays a critical role in promoting safety for all Virginians. Industrial boilers and pressure vessels are used in many large and small establishments, including hospitals, small offices, and large factories. We oversee regular inspections of boilers and pressure vessels in workplaces, apartments, and all other establishments open to the public under the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Act. Our oversight of installation, operation, and repair of these vessels, and certification of both the vessels and the inspectors, assures the safe operation of these powerful systems.

Virginia Boiler and Pressure Vessel Rules and Regulations may be found in the Virginia Administrative Code's Searchable Database by entering "Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety". You can also view the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Rules and Regulations at the Virginia Administrative Code web site.
