Boiler Safety Bureau

History of the Bureau:
North Carolina began regulating boiler inspections in 1935. Since then, the General Assembly has expanded the department's jurisdiction by including heating boilers, hot water storage tanks, and fired and unfired pressure vessels.

Under the Uniform Boiler and Pressure Vessel Act, businesses are required to have equipment that falls under the act inspected to meet safety standards. Companies that fail to meet these requirements are subject to significant penalties.

The Boiler Safety Bureau today inspects new and existing pressure equipment installations for business, institutions, industries, assemblies, educational locations, apartments and other multifamily dwelling locations, recreational sites, public use, and water supplies. We also inspect pressure equipment in hotels, motels, camps, cottages and resort lodges.
