    Effective as of December 1, 2008
    The Board of State Examiner of Plumbers and Gas Fitters at its regularly scheduled meeting held on November 26, 2008, voted to temporarily rescind the approval of all Corrugated Stainless Steel Gas Piping Systems (CSST) in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until such time as the Manufactures' recently amended bonding requirements are resolved by the appropriate Authorities Having Jurisdiction.

    Gas permits issued prior to the above effective date for the installation of CSST Gas Piping Systems are NOT affected by this decision.

    2009 National Fuel Gas Code Update

    October 2008 - NFGC requires bonding of ALL CSST systems per section 7.13 – Electrical Bonding and Grounding. To obtain a copy of the 2009 edition of the National Fuel Gas Code, please visit www.nfpa.org.

    Gastite, a division of the Titeflex Corporation, is a manufacturer of flexible gas piping systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

    I'm still not required to bond the gastite, its not an electrical code, so the installer still needs to hire someone to bond it for him... and its gonna cost him... :D So you might wanna get some prices before choosing to install this product to begin with.

    That is an excellent point that I have heard before. In our area the electricians do not want the plumbers making connections in their panels so the electricians are the ones to make the connection and bill for it.

    Most guys ask ahead of time if CSST will be used and just add it to the bid.

    It really is a fuel gas issue and not an electrician issue.
