Such certificate must bear the date of the inspection and specify the maximum pressure at which the boiler may be operated.
(2) The certificate for a power boiler or a high pressure, high temperature water boiler is valid for a period of 12 months from the date of the certificate inspection. The certificate for a heating boiler or a hot water supply boiler is valid for a period of 24 months from the date of the certificate inspection. The certificate must be posted under glass, or be similarly protected, in the room containing the boiler.
