4. After completion of said repairs or welding, the master licensee shall obtain a written statement from the welder documenting that the heat exchanger has been welded, tested and is acceptable for use without leakage of after-products.
5. Written documentation of said repairs or welding shall be provided to the owner. The original documentation shall be kept on file by the master licensee who requested the welding. A copy of all the repair documents containing, at a minimum, the following information shall be sent to the Board:
A. The name of the owner and location where the repairs were completed;
B. The name and address of the welder;
C. Specific area(s) or location(s) where the repair(s) or welding was performed;
D. Written approval of the repair from the manufacturer where applicable;
E. Equipment identification information, i.e., name, model number, serial number and gross Btu. rating; and
F. The name, address, and license number of the master licensee who requested the repair.
6. Welding repair of a heat exchanger may be performedonly once. A subsequent welding repair may not be made to a heat exchanger unless a master licensee makes written request to the Board and obtains written approval from the Board before the repair is undertaken.
