Regulation Title: 16 VAC 25-40-10 et seq. Standard for Boiler and Pressure Vessel Operator Certification

Description: Section 15.1-11.6 of the Code of Virginia authorizes a local government, at its option, to require boiler or pressure vessel operators to obtain an initial certification from the locality before engaging in the operation and maintenance of boilers and pressure vessels in the jurisdiction. This regulation provides a uniform statewide standard to determine ability, proficiency and qualification of local certification applicants. This standard is for the use of governing bodies of counties, cities and towns that have adopted ordinances requiring local certification. This regulation does not provide for state certification of boiler and pressure vessel operators.

DOLI seeks public comment regarding the following questions:

1. Does the regulation meet the following goals?

- Insure statewide uniformity in the determination of the ability, proficiency and qualifications of boiler and pressure vessel operators certified under a local government ordinance.

- Protect the public's health, safety and welfare with the least possible cost and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth.

2. Is the regulation written clearly and understandably?
