RULE §14.2104Uniform Safety Requirements

(a) In order to determine the safety of a container, LP-Gas Operations may request the manufacturer's data report on that container. LP-Gas Operations may also request that containers and assemblies be examined by a Category 15, 20, or 50 licensee equipped for and experienced in the testing of LNG containers and equipment. The Category 15, 20, or 50 licensee shall file a comprehensive report on its findings with LP-Gas Operations. This requirement may be applied even though an acceptable LNG Form 2023 is on file with LP-Gas Operations.

(b) Any stationary LNG container previously in LNG service which has not been subject to continuous LNG pressure or inert gas pressure shall be inspected by a currently licensed Category 15, 20, or 50 licensee to determine if the container shall be leak-tested or re-certified. A copy of the inspector's written report shall be filed with LP-Gas Operations. The container shall not be used until LP-Gas Operations grants approval.

(c) Any stationary LNG container which has been subject to continuous LNG or inert gas pressure need not be tested prior to installation provided an acceptable LNG Form 2023 is filed with LP-Gas Operations when LNG Form 2500 is submitted for any facility requiring submission of plans and specifications.

(d) When installed for use, containers shall not be stacked one upon another except when designed by the manufacturer for stacking.
