13 NCAC 13 .0302             CERTIFICATE ISSUANCE

(a)  The Chief Inspector shall issue an inspection certificate to the owner/user, upon receipt of payment, when the boiler or pressure vessel is found to be in compliance with this Chapter.

(b)  The owner shall post the inspection certificate under protective cover in a prominent place visible to the operator while reading the pressure, or if a pressure gauge is not required to be installed, while observing operation of the boiler or pressure vessel, unless environmental conditions or proprietary reasons make it impracticable. The certificate shall be maintained in a readily retrievable location if the conditions make it impracticable to post.

(c)  If the Chief Inspector determines that a boiler or pressure vessel is exposing the public to an unsafe condition likely to result in serious personal injury or property damage, the Chief Inspector may refuse to issue or renew or may revoke, suspend or amend an inspection certificate; provided, however, that whenever any action is taken under this Paragraph, the affected party shall be given notice of the availability of an administrative hearing and of judicial review in accordance with Chapter 150B of the N.C. General Statutes.
