The gas discipline of Safety Services is responsible for establishing and interpreting the gas codes, standards and respective regulations under the Safety Codes Act. This covers the installation of natural gas appliances, equipment, components, and accessories where gas is to be used for fuel purposes, propane storage/handling, and the installation of natural gas/propane alternate fuel systems on highway vehicles for motive power.

Municipal Affairs works in partnership with the Safety Codes Council to develop and provide relevant information to the construction industry.
