Reg. 381

Procedure for registration

a) On receipt of an application for registration under Section 7(1) of the Act, the Inspector shall, when the boiler has been properly prepared for examination proceed to measure in complete detail all its parts, ascertain the working pressure allowed by the Regulations by making a series of calculations of the strength of the various parts, such calculations being based on his measurement and if he is satisfied with the correctness of the maker’s certificate, on the dimensions and other particulars relating to the material and construction as stated therein [vide Section 14(1)(c) of the Act and Regulation]. In making his calculations he shall after examination of the material, take due account of the workmanship and details of the construction of each part. In his examination the Inspector may, if he deems necessary bore the plates or other parts to ascertain their thickness and in making his calculations he shall be guided by the requirements of the Regulations.
b) If no formulae or co-efficient applicable to any part is contained in the Regulations, the Chief Inspector shall in his discretion determine the fitness of such part.
c) The strength of the weakest part so calculated or determined, subject to any discretionary power exercised by the Chief Inspector, shall determine the permissible working pressure of the boiler. After inspecting the boiler and ascertaining by the prescribed calculations the maximum pressure at which the boiler may be worked, the Inspector shall hydraulically test and steam-test it in accordance with requirements of Regulations 379 and 380 and a provisional order under Section 9 of the Act in Form V may be issued after the hydraulic test.
d) The Inspector shall enter the above particulars and dimensions of the boiler and calculations of strength of the various parts, together with details of the hydraulic and of the steam tests, in a “Memorandum of Inspection” Book (vide Regulation 386) which, together with all the maker’s papers for the boiler, shall be submitted to the Chief Inspector with the Inspector’s report under sub-section (3) of Section 7 of the Act in Form I.
e) Where a certificate in Form II and a Memorandum of Inspection Book in Form I are furnished by an Inspecting Authority in accordance with sub-regulation (c) of Regulation 4, the Inspector shall, on receipt of an application for registration under sub-section (1) of Section 7 of the Act, proceed to make such examination and measurement of boiler as will satisfy him that the boiler is the one certified by the Inspecting Authority and carry out a thorough examination and check the measurements to ensure the correctness of the Inspecting Authority’s certificate and that no damage has been caused in transit.

The Inspector shall, if he is satisfied with the condition of the boiler, the correctness of the particulars and approved working pressure entered in Form I by the Inspecting authority, subject the boiler to hydraulic test in accordance with Regulation 379.

When the Inspector is satisfied that the boiler has satisfactorily withstood the test, he shall issue a provisional order to enable the boilers to the worked.
