The Indian Boiler Regulation or IBR is an independent body that provides and regulates boiler manufacturing guidelines in India. The Indian Boiler Regulation comes under the IBR Act 1950. This law is accepted throughout India except Jammu and Kashmir. IBR is basically a manufacturing code which specifies the design, material, fabrication, inspection and test requirements for boilers and boiler attached parts for use in India. Since the IBR is strictly enforced by the Government of India, no material or equipment can be imported into India unless it is accompanied by a certificate that confirms that all imports meet the IBR . This certificate should be supported by an inspecting authority designated by the Government of India. The Indian Boiler Regulation (IBR) defines standards for product design and manufacture as well as inspection and test methods. The IBR requires that an inspection company approved by the Central Boiler Board (CBB) must certify all pressure equipment using steam. Only approved components and materials can be imported into India.

Why IBR approval is required?
If these norms are violated as per IBR Regulations then legal action can be taken against the concerned by the IBR authorities. If there is an accident at site and then the IBR norms are not followed then the matter will get complicated hence it is necessary that the IBR piping is designed, manufactured, erected and hydro tested as per the latest IBR code. Manufacturers and suppliers of boilers and related components must comply with the Indian Boiler Regulations if those items are used in India. Boilers should be manufactured under the supervision of an inspecting officer and inspected at all stages of construction.
