Boiler Safety Program


What is a boiler?

A boiler is a closed vessel in which water or other liquid is heated, steam or vapor is generated, or steam is superheated, under pressure or vacuum, for external use by the direct application of energy.

Are there any exemptions?

Certain boilers are exempted from regulation under this legislation. Exemptions include all pressure vessels, boilers on a farm, boilers under Federal Control under Regulations of Title 49, heating boilers located in private homes or in apartment houses of less than six family units. For additional exemptions, click here.

Required information on each boiler?

LLR will keep a complete record of the name of each boiler owner or user and his or her location, the type, dimensions, maximum allowable working pressure, age, and the last record inspection of all boilers.

What type of paperwork needs to be filed?

Evidence of inspection will be performed by a certified special inspector employed by an insurance company or employed by a private inspection entity.

How much will it cost?

Fees for registering a boiler and filing the report of inspection with the State of South Carolina will be $25 for all boiler owners. However, failure to comply may result in a civil penalty of no more than $5,000 for each violation. Failure to comply after written notice may result in a penalty of up to $100 per day.
