Steam receivers must be examined by personnel authorised by the Department of Occupational Health and Safety (DOHS) at least once within every 26 months period. This process is intended to minimise the risk of explosions or other malfunctions possible for pressure vessels. As steam boilers and air receivers operate under pressure greater than atmospheric pressure, this inspection is therefore deemed important.
Operators must keep the official report, logging each inspection, on the same premises as the equipment in question and it must be made available to DOHS personnel for inspection at any time.

- Operators must hire the services of an authorised examiner from the list of authorised examiners. This list is updated throughout the year.

- This report must be kept in the official log of the operator and available for inspection by DOHS personnel.
