11. The Board may give to any owner or operator of a conveyance system, or any distributor, any consumer, and to any owner of an immovable in which there is piping, as well as to any person in charge of the installation or repair of gas pipes, piping or apparatus, any order which it deems expedient for greater safety. Whosoever has received such an order must comply with it, failing which the Board may itself cause it to be carried out by any means at its disposal, including the demolition, removal, confiscation and replacement of such defective apparatus, installation or device, and may recover from the offender the amount of the expenses incurred by it, the whole without prejudice to any other recourse provided by this Act.
A person to whom such an order is notified without prior notice because, in the opinion of the Board, urgent action is required or there is a danger of irreparable damage being caused, may, within the time specified in the order, present observations so that the order may be reviewed by the Board.
