It was issued by the Standards Council on January 13, 2001, with an effective date of February 9, 2001, andsupersedes all previous editions.This edition of NFPA 59 was approved as an American National Standard on February 9,2001. Origin and Development of NFPA 59 NFPA 58, Standard on Liquefied Petroleum Gases  , was used as a general guide until NFPA 59 was adopted in 1949. Subsequent editions were adopted in 1954, 1956, 1958, 1962, 1963, 1968,1974, 1976, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1992, 1995, and 1998.The cooperation of the American Gas Association was secured to facilitate the preparationof this standard. The result was the formation of a special committee under the sponsorshipof the American Gas Association, which was made up of utility engineers, specialists in gasplant construction, and engineers of the liquefied petroleum gas industry. The standard wasinitially the result of the AGA Committee acting in an advisory capacity to the Sectional Com-mittee on Utility Gas of the NFPA Committee on Gases. With the formation of the Committee on Fuel Gases in 1966, NFPA 59 was assigned to that committee. The committee established the Subcommittee on Utility Gas Plants, which wasassigned working responsibility for NFPA 59. In 1972, working responsibility for NFPA 59 wasreassigned to the Committee on Liquefied Petroleum Gases while maintaining the Subcom-mittee on Utility Gas Plants.In 1992, NFPA 59 was assigned to the new Technical Committee on Liquefied PetroleumGases at Utility Gas Plants. The committee maintains correlation with NFPA 58 by overlappingcommittee membership and concurrent or joint meetings. The new committee’s initial mem-bership was the former Subcommittee on Gas Plants.The 2001 edition of NFPA 59 is a complete revision of the document. The revision was pre-pared by a joint effort of the NFPA LNG Committee and the Canadian Standards AssociationZ276 Technical Committee on Liquefied Natural Gas.Changes in the 2001 edition include new chapters on operations and maintenance, thereformatting of the requirements for a design spill in Chapter 2 into a table for ease of use,and other editorial revisions for clarity.
