(b) Special Inspectors shall receive no salary from, nor shall
any of their expenses be paid by, the State. The continuance of a
Special Inspector's Commission shall be conditioned upon his continuing
in the employ of the duly authorized insurance company or
owner-user and upon maintenance of the standards
imposed by this Act.
(c) Special Inspectors shall inspect boilers and pressure
vessels insured or operated by their respective companies.
The Board may impose limitations on owner-user inspectors who have
received their commissions based on the American Petroleum Institute API-510
Inspectors Examination. When
so inspected, the owners and users of insured or self-insured
boilers and pressure
vessels shall be exempt from the payment to the State of the inspection
fees provided for in Section 13 of this Act.
(d) Within 10 business days following each boiler or pressure vessel certificate inspection,
except the inspection of pressure vessels covered by subsection (c)
of Section 11 of this Act, made by
a Special Inspector, the company employing the
inspector shall file a report of the inspection with the Chief
Inspector either electronically or upon the appropriate forms. Reports of non-certificate external inspections need
not be submitted except when those
inspections disclose that the boiler or
pressure vessel is in an unsafe condition or in
violation of the rules and regulations of the Board.
(e) The State Fire Marshal, the Chief
Inspector, or any Deputy or Special Inspector, shall have free access to any
premises in the State to perform
inspections and investigations in accordance with the
provisions of this Act.
