Owners must hire a qualified boiler inspector employed by an authorized insurance company to perform annual high pressure boiler inspections. The Department will not be conducting these inspections for the upcoming cycle.
2011 Inspection Cycle
November 16, 2010 to November 15, 2011.
High pressure boilers must have two inspections: an internal inspection and an external inspection.
These inspections must be conducted within the same cycle but should be performed approximately six months apart.
Inspections can only be performed by an authorized insurance company.
Inspection and Filing Requirements
A Boiler Inspection Report (BO-9 form) must be filed for each inspection type.
The BO-9 must be filed within 45 days of performing each inspection type.
Inspectors must notify the Department at least 10 days before performing the internal inspection. Email notification to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If defects are found during an inspection, defects must be corrected and an Affirmation of Correction (BO-13 form) filed within the 45 days of performing the inspection. Reports are not considered complete until the BO-13 is received.
Reports submitted more than 45 days after the date of inspection will receive a late penalty of $50 per boiler, per inspection type for each month the report is late.
Reports submitted 12 months after the day of inspection will be deemed expired and a penalty of $1,000 per boiler, per inspection type will be imposed.
An owner may request an extension of the filing deadline based on the criteria outlined in 1 RCNY 103-05 (PDF). The request can be submitted using the Extension Request Form (BO-13E form).
An owner may request a waiver of penalties by submitting a Boiler Waiver of Penalties (BWP form) and the required filing fee. The criteria for waivers are outlined in 1 RCNY 103-05 (PDF).
