(20 ILCS 2905/4)
Rebuilt flame safeguard controls.
(a) Beginning July 1, 2012, the use of a rebuilt flame safeguard control in forced air heating equipment in any non-residential structure is prohibited, unless the rebuilt flame safeguard control is labeled and listed by a nationally recognized testing agency. This prohibition does not apply to structures used for production agriculture, as defined in Section 3-35 of the Use Tax Act.
For the purposes of this Section, "flame safeguard control" means a modular burner management system that is designed to provide automatic ignition and continuous flame monitoring for use in forced air heating equipment that uses gas or light oil fuels, or both.
(b) Willful failure to remove any rebuilt flame safeguard control in forced air heating equipment as required by this Act is a Class B misdemeanor.
Tampering with, removing, destroying, or disconnecting any installed flame safeguard control, except in the course of inspection, maintenance, or replacement of the control, is a Class A misdemeanor for the first conviction and a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent conviction.
