Take a look at the PDF file in my prior post:efm pressure is too high
What was repealed was a PA statewide code stamp requirement boilers in residential use. Look at the last page of the bill. There's the quote, "(D) COAL-FIRED BOILERS IN RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS. - COAL-FIRED BOILERS INSTALLED IN RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS SHALL BE DESIGNED , CONSTRUCTED AND TESTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF CHAPTER, SECTION M 2001.1.1 OF THE INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODE OF 2003, OR ITS SUCCESSOR PROVISIONS, EXCEPT THAT THESE BOILERS SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO THE STAMPING REQUIREMENTS OF SECTION M2001.1.1"
So coal boilers must still be built and tested to code but there is no stamping requirement.
Edit: There must be an error in the quote. My 2006 International Mechanical Code book lists the "TESTS" section as 1011.1
I know it's trivia but, it's damn hard to track down these details and perhaps it will be easier for someone in the future.
