The commissioner shall adopt rules for the safe and proper installation, use, operation, and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels subject to this chapter. The commissioner shall adopt rules for the licensing of operators of hobby boilers used during parades, exhibitions, and threshing shows where the public is invited. A fee must be charged for an operating license, for a license renewal, and for an examination conducted to determine minimum competence. Individuals operating hobby boilers within this state as of July 1, 2007, are considered acceptable for a license without additional training or examination. An individual who is not a resident of this state and who holds a boiler operator license or credential in another state or Canadian province is exempt from licensure as a hobby boiler operator in this state. The commissioner may not issue a certificate of inspection to any owner or user of a boiler who fails or refuses to comply with those rules. The commissioner shall revoke any certificate presently in force upon evidence that the owner or user of the boiler is failing or refusing to comply with the rules.
