3 6/10/2014 BOILER ADVISORY BOARD - BOILER ADVISORY BOARD - The Boiler Advisory Board was created to assist in the formation of rules and regulations concerning boiler operation; to assist in giving examinations to prospective boiler inspectors; and to counsel and advise the Chief Boiler Inspector in the performance of his duties. The Board is appointed by the Governor. In addition to the Director of Labor who is ex officio chairman, the Boiler Advisory Board consists of four members. These members represent insurance companies who inspect and insure boilers and pressure vessels, boiler owners, boiler manufacturers, and operating engineers. The Boiler Inspection Division was established by legislative action in 1917 to protect the public from the inherent dangers prevailing in the construction, installation, operation and repair of steam boilers and related pressure vessels. The Division's primary objective is the prevention of boiler and pressure vessel accidents which might cause loss of life and/or extensive property damage. This is accomplished by the enforcement of the appropriate sections of the various codes formulated by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and enforcement of the rules and regulations of the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors Code adopted by the Boiler Division. The Boiler Inspection Division will at all times work closely with sellers, installers, repairmen, owners, users and operators, by providing assistance in interpreting the boiler safety laws of the State of Arkansas, the A.S.M.E., and the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspection Codes. The Boiler Inspection Division is self-supporting and operates only on fees established and approved by the General Assembly. The fees are for services such as annual and biennial inspections of all boilers and pressure vessels; the examination and licensing of boiler operators; quality control assurance surveys; ASME Code Shop service; and licensing of firms to install and repair boilers and vessels.
