dpiit: State boilers allowed self-certification and 3rd party inspection


New Delhi: In a move aimed at enhancing ease of doing business, the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) has permitted self-certification and third-party inspection and certification of boilers with state governments.

This will provide a boost to sectors such as power plants, chemical plants, refineries, paper plants, steel mills, sugar mills and other processing industries.

“Rules and regulations are already in place for third party inspection,” the DPIIT said in a statement on Thursday. “This has resulted in a simplified and more accessible, user-friendly framework for the administration of the Boilers Act and has also protected manufacturers/users’ interests without sacrificing the safety of boilers.”


Earlier, the department took steps to simplify the procedure of inspection of boilers. For instance, 11 third-party inspecting authorities have been recognised by the Central Boilers Board to work in the country employing competent persons to carry out inspection of boilers and boiler components during manufacture and use, in addition to chief inspector or director of boilers.
