New Boiler Code

SDCI is updating Seattle’s Boiler Code, which hasn’t been updated since 2005. The new Boiler Code will be effective July 31, 2017. Any application you submit on or after this date must meet the new requirements. The new code includes several changes, including:

  • A new definition for cooking kettles
  • Separate sections for new construction and existing installation requirements
  • Updated enforcement sections that are similar to those found in Seattle’s other construction codes
  • Alignment of the Seattle Boiler Code requirements with the State of Washington Boiler Code

 

Copies of the new 2017 Seattle Boiler Code ordinance are available on our Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code website. We expect to post easy-to-read electric copy of the new code next month.

Seattle Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Update

The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspection Program is working on a complete re-write of the Seattle Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspection Code. Text and content will remain pretty much the same as the current edition. However, the new edition will be rearranged as follows:

  1. Administration
  2. Installation(s)
  3. In-Service Inspections
  4. Repairs and Alterations
  5. Retroactive Requirements

 

Other changes include:

  • A new definition for Cooking Kettles from the State of Washington
  • Some minor syntax corrections

 

We will begin stakeholder reviews in late October. We hope to obtain City Council approval in the first quarter of 2016.

We’ll post the draft of the updated code on our Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code website later this month.
