Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety
This program provides for the preservation of health and safety to the general public from Liquefied Petroleum gas (LP-gas) systems through minimum standards for the design, construction, location, installation, maintenance and operation of LP-gas systems, established by N.J.A.C. 5:18.
Propane, propylene, butane, butylene hydrocarbons and any mixtures of these for any vapor or liquid transfer or stroage operations are addressed.
New Jersey uses the National Fire Protection Association publication #58 (NFPA 58), "LP-Gas Code" as the basis for the technical requirements of LP-Gas Systems within the State. Additional requirements and clarifications are included in N.J.A.C. 5:18.
In addition to the technical aspects of LP-Gas Systems, requirements and procedures for registration, inspection, plan submittal and review, approval, violations, licensing, emergency situations, odorization fee assessment, auditing procedures, quality control and the training of individuals in the LP-Gas industry are addressed.
