The Boiler Safety Program is responsible for the administration and enforcement of Florida Statute 554, "The Boiler Safety Act." and Chapter 69A-51, Florida Administrative Code which provides boiler safety rules to safeguard life, limb, and property by specific minimum standards for construction, installation, operation, maintenance, and repairs of boilers located at public assembly locations.
Boilers are inspected by the special inspectors employed by the companies authorized to write insurance in the State of Florida, or state Deputy Boiler Inspectors if the boiler is not insured. The Boiler Safety Program issues Certificates of Compliance to those boilers passing inspection once the certificate fee has been paid. A Certificate of Compliance is valid for one year for high pressure boilers and two years for a low pressure boiler. Certificates of Compliance must be posted under glass in the boiler room with the boiler for future inspections.
Please take a look at our boiler safety brochures and booklet for frequently asked questions, and print as a quick reference for boiler requirements.
