Indiana Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission's Public Hearing of LSA Document #20-627 - Indiana Boiler & Pressure Vessel Rules
Add to calendar

Under IC 4-22-2-24, notice is hereby given that on Wednesday February 24, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., Indianapolis (Eastern) time, via video conference accessible online or via telephone, the Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission will hold a public hearing on a proposed rule to modify 675 IAC 12-3-13 and 675 IAC 30 to make technical changes and modernize regulations governing the design, manufacture, fabrication, assembly, installation, alteration, repair, maintenance, operation, and inspection of regulated boilers and pressure vessels and the associated fees for inspection, permitting, inspector licensing, and variances.

This rulemaking is necessary to: (1) bring the rules regulating boilers and pressure vessels up to date with legislative changes that have occurred over the years; (2) incorporate the current emergency rules (LSA Document #19-334(E) and #19-426(E)) into the Indiana Administrative Code before their expiration on July 1, 2021; (3) clarify language; (4) reduce unnecessary regulation; and (5) address matters of health and safety. Specifically, regarding the new requirement to obtain a new operating permit and inspection upon movement of a portable boiler or unfired pressure vessel, this is necessary to ensure each time a vessel is moved and reinstalled, it is performed in accordance with the safety standards adopted in code and the location of the vessel can be tracked. The proposed rule is available to be inspected and copied at the Indiana Department of Homeland Security located at the Indiana Government Center South, 302 West Washington Street, Room E208, Indianapolis, Indiana and online at: http://iac.iga.in.gov/iac/20210127-IR-675200627PRA.xml.html.

The public hearing will be conducted by the Commission’s staff. Those interested in providing oral comments at the hearing should contact the Commission’s staff at buildingcommission@dhs.in.gov to be added to the list of speakers/presenters, to ensure that comments will be presented in an orderly manner. Written comments may be submitted to the Commission's staff at buildingcommission@dhs.in.gov and will be accepted until the close of business on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Questions may be directed to the Commission's staff at buildingcommission@dhs.in.gov.
