Licensed Pressure Equipment Inspectors (LPEI) are required for companies performing inspections under a Quality Management System of Inspections (QMS). 

In accordance with the Boiler & Pressure Vessels Regulations an owner, insurer or inspection company must ensure that any inspection required by a QMS is conducted by a licensed pressure equipment inspector whose licence authorizes the holder to conduct that inspection.

LPEI Scope of Authority

There are three classes of LPEI. All three classes may inspect in-service piping, piping fabrication, piping repair or installations, pressure vessel repair or alterations, and in-service inspection of pressure vessels. 

Class 1

A Class 1 inspector may additionally inspect boilers (including installation). The Class 1 and 2 inspectors may issue inspection certificates necessary for the issuance of or maintenance of equipment licences to operate. 

Class 2

A Class 2 inspector may additionally inspect a re-installation of a pressure vessel removed for repair work, an installation of a moved pressure vessel or the installation of a new pressure vessel. 

Class 3

A Class 3 inspector may be reviewed by a Class 1 or 2 inspector for the issuance of the certificate. 

New equipment installations require an acceptance inspection to be performed by aTSASK inspector but may occur following the installation inspection and equipment being placed into operation. For further details of the scope of Licensed Pressure Equipment Inspectors, refer to section 101 of the Boiler & Pressure Vessels Regulations.

It is possible to hold a licence authorizing the scope of work for an LPEI while not holding a Certificate of Qualification issued by TSASK. In order to be the Designated Pressure Equipment Inspector (Company Chief Inspector) for a QMS program, an LPEI must apply for a Certificate of Qualification.
