Boiler Inspection Program

Beth Jacobson

Program Manager, 701-328-5154

The Boiler Inspection Program provides initial and periodic inspections of boilers of all sizes, types and pressures. Originated in 1953, the Boiler Inspection Program is responsible for the inspection and safe repair of boilers installed in public and commercial locations. Technical advice and engineering assistance are provided to installers, repair firms, operators and owner/users.

Nominal fees are collected to fund the inspection activity. Coordination of inspections with insurance companies allows qualified insurance company "special inspectors" to participate in making required inspections and prevent duplication of services.

As of Nov. 7, 2017, there are 11,442 active boilers subject to regular inspection in the state, including 8,357 hot water heating boilers, 1,854 hot water supply boilers, 834 steam heating boilers, 346 power and process boilers, and 51 historical (hobby) boilers.
