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.
