19 Miss. Code. R. § 7-14.01 - Promulgation and Purpose - General

Current through December 27, 2021

A. These Rules and Regulations are promulgated by the Mississippi State Liquefied Compressed Gas Board (LC Gas Board), and approved by the Mississippi Commissioner of Insurance, in accordance with authority granted in Sections 75-57-3, 75-57-101 and 75-57-105 of the Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended.
B. The purpose of these Rules and Regulations is to prevent the loss of life and property from fire and other related hazards. Specifically, this regulation shall further enforce and establish the "Leak Checks" procedures originally set forth in Mississippi Department of Insurance Bulletin No. 2010-4. Mississippi Code section 75-57-9 specifically adopts by reference certain national codes related to liquefied compressed gas safety, including but not limited to the National Fire Protection Association Code, Pamphlet 54 (NFPA-54). NFPA-54 provides for the performance of leak checks on new or interrupted service, and gives instructions/guidance as to how such leak checks are to be performed. This Regulation is to remind permit holders of the requirement that these checks be performed, and delineate the acceptable methods by which said checks must be completed.
C. This regulation will clarify the procedures for the issuance, expiration and renewal for permits approved by the LC Gas Board, in order to ensure the financial responsibility requirements in Mississippi Code section 75-57-49 are continuously maintained as a condition of any permit issued or renewed.
