Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Division

The Division of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety regulates the construction, installation, operation, inspection and repair of boilers and pressure vessels throughout the state of Illinois. Due to the potential risks and hazards involved with the usage of boilers and pressure vessels, the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Act was adopted to safeguard the citizens of Illinois.

Boilers and pressure vessels are used for various applications in all types of locations: schools, hospitals, churches, factories, day care centers, restaurants, dormitories, libraries, municipal buildings, refineries, chemical plants, prisons and many other facilities. Currently there are over 100,000 boilers and pressure vessels registered and inspected on a routine basis by authorized commissioned inspectors.
