I-Codes with Commentaries: IFGC – International Fuel Gas Code with Commentary
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This code shall apply to the installation of fuel-gas piping systems, fuel gas appliances, gaseous hydrogen systems and related accessories in accordance with Sections 101.2.1 through 101.2.5.
A fuel gas code, like any other code, is intended to be adopted as a legally enforceable document to safeguard health, safety, property and public welfare. A fuel gas code cannot be effective without adequate provisions for its administration and enforcement. The official charged with the administration and enforcement of fuel gas regulations has a great responsibility, and with this responsibility goes authority. No matter how detailed the fuel gas code may be, the code official must, to some extent, exercise judgment in determining compliance. The code official has the responsibility of establishing that the homes in which the citizens of the community reside and the buildings in which they work are designed and constructed to be reasonably free from hazards associated with the presence and use of fuel gas appliances, appurtenances, fixtures and systems. The code intends to establish a minimum acceptable level of safety.
