Section 71 of said chapter 146, as so appearing, is hereby amended by striking out the second paragraph, and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
When the inspection of a boiler covered by section 70 is completed and the district engineering inspector finds the boiler to be in safe working order, with the fittings necessary to safely and properly set up and the boiler and any appurtenances conform to the rules of the board and sections 1, 4 or 8 of the ASME Code, the department shall issue to the owner or user thereof a certificate of inspection. The certificate shall state the maximum pressure at which the boiler may be operated and thereupon the owner or user of the boiler may operate the boiler as stated in the certificate. If the district engineering inspector finds otherwise, the department shall withhold the certificate until the boiler and its appurtenances are put in a condition to ensure safety of operation and to ensure that the boiler conforms to the rules of the board and said sections 1, 4 or 8 of the ASME Code. If the insurance inspector finds the boiler or pressure vessel to be in safe working order, as above, the insurance inspector shall submit such information to the department and the department shall, upon receipt of the required fee, issue a certificate of inspection. If the insurance inspector finds otherwise, the insurance inspector shall submit such information and report such findings to the department on the approved format. The department shall withhold a certificate until the boiler or pressure vessel passes inspection. The owner of any such boiler shall not operate nor cause to be operated any such boiler until a certificate has been issued.
