IBR i.e. Indian Boiler Regulations is the law of India, which was created on 15th September 1950 in the exercise of the powers conferred by section 28 & 29 of the Indian Boilers Act. It governs design, manufacture, installation and operation of all steam producing vessels which fall under its purview.
It Describes a boiler as a steam producing vessel with a capacity exceeding 5 gallons (25 litres). In terms of IBR boilers, we mean any closed vessel exceeding 25 litres in capacity and which is designed to generate steam under pressure, including any mounting or fitting attached to the vessel which is completely or partially under pressure when the steam is shut of
Because the IBR is strictly enforced by the Indian government, no equipment or materials can be imported into India unless they are accompanied by a certificate confirming compliance with the IBR. The certificate must be endorsed by an inspection authority designated by the Indian government.
The Central Boilers Board in India recognizes Arise Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company RRG (ABIOTIC) as an Inspecting Authority and Competent Authority. BIOTIC has inspectors stationed in the U.S. and a global network of IBR inspectors to cover the locations where materials and pressure equipment may be sourced.
Why is IBR approval required?
If these Norms as per the IBR regulation are violated then legal action may be taken against concerns by the IBR authorities. In case any accident If IBR norms are not followed at site, the matter will become complicated, so it is critical that IBR piping is designed, fabricated, erected, and hydro tested according to the latest IBR code.
