CHAPTER 9LP-GAS SAFETY RULES
SUBCHAPTER BLP-GAS INSTALLATIONS, CONTAINERS, APPURTENANCES, AND EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS
RULE §9.115Examination and Testing of Containers

(a) In order to determine the safety of a container, LP-Gas Operations may require that the licensee or operator of the container send a copy of the manufacturer's data report on that container to LP-Gas Operations. LP-Gas Operations may also require that the container and equipment be examined by a Category A, B, or O licensee, with a comprehensive report on the findings submitted to LP-Gas Operations for its consideration. This subsection may be applied even though an acceptable LPG Form 23 has been received.

(b) Any stationary ASME LP-gas container previously in LP-gas service which has not been subject to continuous LP-gas vapor pressure shall be retested by an authorized Category A, B, or O licensed entity utilizing recognized ASME test methods to determine if the container is safe for LP-gas use in Texas, and the test results shall be submitted to LP-Gas Operations on LPG Form 8.

(c) Any stationary ASME LP-gas container which has been subject to continuous LP-gas vapor pressure is not required to be tested prior to installation, provided the licensee or operator of the container files a properly completed LPG Form 23 with LP-Gas Operations at the time LPG Form 500 is submitted for any facility requiring submission of a site plan in accordance with §9.101 of this title (relating to Filings Required for Stationary LP-Gas Installations).

(d) Any stationary ASME LP-gas container brought into Texas from out-of-state and intended for stationary LP-gas installation in Texas at any facility requiring submission of a site plan shall be tested in accordance with subsection (b) of this section prior to review approval being granted by LP-Gas Operations, unless that container is owned by a valid licensee. In this case, LP-Gas Operations may determine that such tests are not necessary upon the receipt of an acceptable LPG Form 23 from the licensee.
