(1) If an inspector determines that any condition exists that is a violation of the safety standards prescribed pursuant to ORS 480.510 (Short title) to 480.670 (Civil penalty for Boiler and Pressure Vessel Law violations), the inspector shall post a notice in plain view on or near the affected boiler or pressure vessel that specifies the defective condition, and shall provide a copy of the notice to the owner or user of the affected boiler or pressure vessel, or to a representative of the owner or user.

(2) If no immediate hazard to health and safety is evident, the notice shall state that correction of the defective condition is required within 30 days of the date of the inspection. If the correction is not completed within the 30-day period, the owner or user of the boiler or pressure vessel may apply to the chief boiler inspector for extension of the time for making the correction. If the chief boiler inspector determines that corrective action was commenced within the time period specified in the notice, an extension may be granted for such time as is required to complete corrective action.

(3) If an immediate hazard to health and safety is evident, the notice shall prohibit further use of the boiler or pressure vessel. The inspector immediately shall report that action to the chief boiler inspector.

(4) If any person is aggrieved by a determination made upon inspection under this section, the person first shall appeal that determination to the chief boiler inspector and then to the Board of Boiler Rules. Subsequent appeal shall be as provided in ORS 183.480 (Judicial review of agency orders) to 183.540 (Reduction of economic impact on small business). [1983 c.676 §28]
