If a Member State chooses to implement inspection of boilers (by referring to article 8a), the following requirements should apply to wood-fired boilers:
- regular inspection of wood-fired boilers with a rated output of more than 100 kW at least every two years,
- one-off inspection of the whole heating installation with wood-fired boilers of more than 20 kW rated output which are older than 15 years.
The Member State may also require regular inspection for wood-fired boilers between 20 and 100 kW.
