NFPA 58 Compliance

Learn What You Need to Know for LPG Storage Tank Safety—and Reliability

NFPA 58 Compliance


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sets industry codes and standards for the safe storage, handling, transportation and use of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) gas.  The association regularly publishes its benchmarks and updates in its NFPA Pamphlet 58 (NFPA 58) handbook, available via the NFPA website.  

By following NFPA 58 codes, LPG producers, distributors and users can ensure the safety of their tanks and installations by mitigating associated risks including the prevention of tank and equipment failures, tampering and leaks, as well as potential fires and explosions.

Topics covered by NFPA pamphlet 58 include the design, construction, installation, and operation of LPG Gas systems including:

  • Piping
  • Equipment and ASME containers
  • LPG gas liquid transfer operations
  • Venting
  • Transportation
  • Storage of cylinders awaiting use, resale or exchange
  • Distribution facilities
  • Marine shipping and receiving 
  • Maintenance
  • And more
