Who may make welded repairs to regulated boilers and pressure vessels?

Only organizations in possession of the following certification/authorization may repair regulated boilers or pressure vessels: a) National Board "R" certificate holder (documented on a National Board R-1 repair report form) and b) The holder of an Indiana "C-3" Certificate of Authorization as issued by the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Section under the authority of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Rules Board. These repairs are required to be documented on an I-R1 repair form available from the BPVSS.

Note: In all cases of welded repairs, the certificate holder must be in possession of a Certificate of Authorization that is issued covering the scope of work performed. In all cases of welded repairs a state licensed boiler inspector must signify the welded repair report to verify acceptance of the work performed. Acceptance of repairs signified by a National Board Commissioned Inspector (not state licensed) shall be at the discretion of the Director/Chief Inspector.
