The National Board recently sent out email notices to participating jurisdictional authorities regarding the annual update of NB-370, National Board Synopsis of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Laws, Rules, and Regulations. The email provided detailed instructions regarding the online reporting method for both members and non-members. If your jurisdiction did not receive the notice, or if you have questions about the registration and reporting process, please email

In order to update this important document for 2017, National Board asks each jurisdiction to review and note any corrections or updates for accuracy. The deadline for reviewing and updating (if necessary) the Synopsis is December 31, 2016.

The National Board fully appreciates the continued assistance of participating jurisdictional authorities in keeping the Synopsis of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Laws, Rules, and Regulations up to date with new regulatory information. It is through this professional cooperation the National Board has been able to provide a vital resource critical to the best interests of the pressure equipment industry.

The Synopsis is located on the National Board website and features a dropdown box menu so users can select a specific jurisdiction and review detailed information regarding current laws, rules, and regulations. Each online report includes the prevailing requirements, detailed contact information, and regulatory history for each jurisdiction.
