In December of 1994, the Commission adopted two of the National Fire Protection Association's standards, in regard
to liquefied petroleum gases, NFPA (pamphlet) 54 - 1992 edition, the "National Fuel Gas Code" and NFPA (pamphlet)
58 - 1992 edition, the "Standard for the Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petroleum Gases" and adopted one of the
American National Standards Institute's standards, in regard to anhydrous ammonia, ANSI (pamphlet) K 61.1 of 1989,
except for Section 8 regarding systems mounted on railcar structures. The Commission, on February 7, 1995,
adopted NFPA (pamphlet) 58 - 1995 edition and on December 20, 1999, adopted NFPA (pamphlet) 54 - 1996 edition. In
adopting these standards the Commission made exceptions to the standards; that any published Commission rule or
regulation would take precedence over the standards. The Commission also reserved the right to make future exceptions
to the referenced adopted standards that it deemed necessary, in the interest of public safety. Any exceptions to
the referenced standards can be found in the "Adoption of Standards" Subchapter
of the Commission rules and regulations.
