Abstract: Special equipment inspection system is a vital part of the special equipment safety supervisory system. Current special equipment inspection system is prominently characterized by planned economy, and basic role of allocated inspection resources in market plays a poor role, and the effective competitive restriction mechanism hasn’t been established yet, so it’s necessary to deepen the reform. The current special equipment inspection system reform is restricted by multiple factors, and its progress in different regions is unbalanced; in addition, the unified consensus on the reform direction and path hasn’t been reached, and it’s also impeded by the coordination problem of interests. It starts from the safety development, and is based on theories such as inspection nature, location, function and responsibility, and conducts the analysis from three reform paths of administrative supervision, technical services and product certification. In addition, the reform mode of the legal inspection “one divided into two” is proposed, namely, the separation of enterprise self-inspection from the state mandatory inspection; meanwhile, the reform path design should coordinate and consider key points, strength and pace in reform, and improve the reform scientificity and coordination.
