Propane Safety Program

Jurisdiction: Propane distribution systems serving 10 or more customers in residential or commercial districts, and 2 or more customers in mobilehome parks.

Regulations: Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations

The Commission assumed jurisdiction over the safety of master metered propane distribution systems in January 1995, as mandated by Assembly Bill 766 (Hauser).  The Commission's Utilities Safety Branch administers the propane safety program similar to its Mobilehome Park Safety Program, scheduling each jurisdictional system for a safety audit at least once every five years, to assure compliance with the federal pipeline safety regulations adopted by the Commission under General Order 112-E.
