(225 ILCS 203/10)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
License; enforcement; failure to pay tax.
No person shall act as a boiler and pressure vessel repairer,
or use any title implying that the person
is engaged in the practice or occupation of boiler and pressure vessel
unless licensed by the State Fire
Marshal under this Act.
No firm, association, or corporation shall act as an
agency licensed under this Act, or advertise
or use any title implying that it
is engaged in the practice of boiler and pressure vessel repair, unless
licensed by the State Fire Marshal under this Act.
However, an organization that performs welded
to its own equipment is not required to have a license if it is authorized by
the Board to perform those repairs.
The State Fire Marshal, in the name of the People, through the Attorney
State's Attorney of any county, any resident of the State, or any legal
entity within the State may apply for injunctive relief in any court to enjoin
any person who has not been issued a license or whose license
has been suspended, revoked, or not renewed, from practicing
a licensed activity. Upon filing a verified petition in
court, the court, if satisfied by affidavit, or otherwise, that the person
is or has been practicing in violation
of this Act, may enter a temporary restraining order
or preliminary injunction, without bond, enjoining
the defendant from further unlicensed activity. A copy of the verified
complaint shall be served upon the defendant and the proceedings are to
be conducted as in other civil cases.
The court may enter
a judgment permanently enjoining a defendant
from further unlicensed activity if it is established that the defendant
has been, or is practicing in violation of this Act.
In case of violation of any injunctive order or judgment entered under
Section the court may summarily try and punish the
offender for contempt of court. Injunctive proceedings are in
addition to all penalties and other remedies in this Act.
The State Fire Marshal may refuse to issue or may suspend the license
of any person who fails to file a return, or to pay the tax, penalty, or
interest shown in a filed return, or to pay any final assessment of tax,
penalty, or interest as required by any tax Act administered by the
Illinois Department of Revenue until such time as the requirements of
the tax Act are satisfied.
Nothing in this Act shall apply to boilers and pressure vessels regulated
under Section 2a or 2b of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Act.
