    Default Fuel gas code

    Are the NFPA and ICC Fuel Gas code standards the same/similar?

    Question huh?

    If there is one word of difference then they couldn't be the same now could they?

    They are similar in that they cover fuel gas.

    There are some differences. Buy them both and compare.

    Not really getting your question here Marc.

    Keep the fire in the fireplace.

    Yea...let me retract that question for now. I can see how it can come across as stupid.

    They are sorta the same. Let me explain. If you look in the International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC) you will see either "IFGC" or "IFGS" next to each section heading. IFGS stands for International Fuel Gas Standard and refers to the National Fuel Gas Code, also known as NFPA 54 and ANSI Z223.1. Sections labeled IFGS are extracted from NFPA 54 and can only be changed through the combined NFPA/AGA process. Sections labeled IFGC are changed through the ICC process. For the most part, this boils down to the technical requirements are from the standard while administrative portions are from the code/ICC portion. This is a strange arrangement worked out between AGA, NFPA and ICC when ICC first tried to publish a fuel gas code. This is because NFPA & AGA co-own the rights to all of the technical information in the National Fuel Gas Code like combustion air requirements, gas vent sizing requirements and gas pipe sizing just to name a few.
