  • All boilers and pressure vessels are required to undergo mandatory annual inspections by certified inspectors to ensure they meet the appropriate health and safety standards.
  • Any new boiler or pressure vessel installation must be registered with the Maryland Department of Labor prior to operation.
  • In the event of a significant alteration or repair, the boiler or pressure vessel must be re-inspected before it is put back into service.
  • Any accident or incident involving a boiler or pressure vessel must be reported to the Maryland Department of Labor within 24 hours.
