The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspection Program is working on a complete re-write of the Seattle Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspection Code. Text and content will remain pretty much the same as the current edition. However, the new edition will be rearranged as follows:
- In-Service Inspections
- Repairs and Alterations
- Retroactive Requirements
Other changes include:
- A new definition for Cooking Kettles from the State of Washington
- Some minor syntax corrections
We will begin stakeholder reviews in late October. We hope to obtain City Council approval in the first quarter of 2016.
We’ll post the draft of the updated code on our Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code website later this month.
