NFPA 54: National Fuel Gas Code provides the most effective means of ensuring fuel gas safety on consumers' premises.
NFPA 54: National Fuel Gas Code provides critical guidance for the safe installation and operation of fuel gas piping systems, appliances, equipment, and accessories. Installers, designers, AHJs, maintainers, inspectors, and facility managers look to the Code for design requirements; inspection, testing, and purging requirements; pipe sizing tables; and venting system rules that address fuel gas risks. Each edition builds on the next, through consensus-based changes that reflect the evolving needs of the field and the latest information about fuel gas safety.
NFPA’s Redline PDF contains both the current NFPA document and a Redline version of the document which shows changes from the previous edition marked in color. With the Redline you can quickly spot changed sections and tell specifically what has been changed from the previous edition, saving time and confusion.
