CHAPTER 9LP-GAS SAFETY RULES
SUBCHAPTER BLP-GAS INSTALLATIONS, CONTAINERS, APPURTENANCES, AND EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS
RULE §9.109Physical Inspection of Stationary LP-Gas Installations

(a) Aggregate water capacity of 10,000 gallons or more. The applicant shall notify LP-Gas Operations in writing when the installation is ready for inspection. If LP-Gas Operations does not physically inspect the facility within 30 calendar days of receipt of notice that the facility is ready for inspection, the facility may operate conditionally until the initial complete inspection is made. If any safety rule violations exist at the time of LP-Gas Operations' initial inspection, the installation may be required to cease LP-gas operations until the violations are corrected.

(b) Aggregate water capacity of less than 10,000 gallons. After receipt of LPG Form 501, LP-Gas Operations shall conduct an inspection as soon as possible to verify that the installation described is in compliance with the LP-Gas Safety Rules. The facility may be operated prior to inspection if it is in compliance with the LP-Gas Safety Rules. If any LP-gas statute or safety rule violation exists at the time of the first inspection at a commercial installation, the subject container, including any piping, appliances, appurtenances, or equipment connected to it may be immediately removed from LP-gas service until the violations are corrected.

(c) Material variances. If LP-Gas Operations determines the completed installation varies materially from the application originally accepted, correction of the variance and notification to LP-Gas Operations or resubmission of the application is required. The review of such resubmitted application shall comply with §9.101 of this title (relating to Filings Required for Stationary LP-Gas Installations).

(d) In the event an applicant has requested an inspection and LP-Gas Operations inspection identifies violations requiring modifications by the applicant, LP-Gas Operations shall consider the assessment of an inspection fee to cover the costs associated with any additional inspection, including mileage and per diem rates set by the legislature.
