2021 International Fuel Gas Code
The 2021 International Fuel Gas Code addresses the design and installation of fuel gas systems and gas fired appliances through prescriptive and performance requirements. Key changes in the 2021edition include:
- New marking requirements for the termination of concealed condensate piping.
- New rules for using press-connect joints for high pressure (over 5 psig) applications indoors.
- New rules affecting the use of commercial cooking appliances within dwelling units.
This code is intended to establish provisions consistent with the scope of a fuel gas code that adequately protects public health, safety and welfare; provisions that do not unnecessarily increase construction costs, or restrict the use of new methods and materials of construction.
