NFPA 54: National Fuel Gas Code, 2018 Edition
Ensure a safe fuel gas installation using the 2018 edition of NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1: National Fuel Gas Code.
NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1: National Fuel Gas Code provides industry-accepted guidance for the safe installation and operation of fuel gas piping systems, appliances, equipment, and accessories. The 2018 edition includes updates based on recognized risks, recent research, and the techniques, materials, developments, and construction practices in use today. From design to installation, maintenance, and inspection — no matter what aspect of fuel gas safety your job involves, the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code is essential.
Update to the 2018 edition of the National Fuel Gas Code for greater confidence in CSST bonding.
Be sure you’re working with the most up-to-date information on the National Fuel Gas Code’s bonding requirement for corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST). All CSST used for fuel gas piping must be bonded to the building grounding system to prevent damage to the system due to nearby lightning strikes. In the 2018 edition, revisions to piping requirements include allowing listed arc-resistant jacket or coated CSST to use the appliance’s electrical grounding connector as the bonding means and recognizing stainless steel smooth wall pipe and tubing products as acceptable piping materials.
