Full description

Under the provisions of sections 11 & 12 of the Boilers Inspection Act 1906 (No. 2071) and subsequent Acts, industrial boilers were required to be registered with the Chief Inspector and a Register of Boilers was maintained for that purpose. Inspection of industrial boilers (under section 14 of the Act) was conducted by inspectors of the Boiler Inspection Branch, Mines Department, until 1962 and since then by the Department of Labour and Industry.

The original Act applied only to steam boilers and digesters (digesters were commonly used in many trades especially in the rendering of fats and oils). The Boilers Inspection (Air and Gas Receivers) Act 1940 (No.4739) which came into operation in 1947, extended the application of the legislation to embrace air and gas receivers. The provisions of the Act were extended to boilers at mines (refer to Mines (Amendment Act) 1949 (No.5396). Prior to 1949, boilers used in mines other than coal mines were subject to the provisions of the Mines Act. (For Register of Boiler Inspection in mines see VPRS 9534, 1929 to 1947). Boilers used for domestic purposes were exempted from the application of the measure.

This series was created to register boilers. Owners of boilers were required to register boilers with the Chief Inspector of Boilers who then arranged for inspectors to inspect them on site.

The particulars recorded include :
- registration number
- owner
- locality
- name of Inspector
- number of certificate of registration, and
- date of expiry.

Entries within the Register were made consecutively, with newly registered boilers receiving the next available registration number.

The end date of this series (1977) has been imputed from records in custody date range.
