    * Scope. This code shall apply to the storage, handling, transportation, and use of liquefied petroleum gas (LP-Gas). A General Properties of LP-Gas. Liquefied petroleum gases (LP-Gases), as defined in this code (see ), are gases at normal room temperature and atmospheric pressure. They liquefy under moderate pressure and readily vaporize upon release of the pressure.   Designing for fire safety in construction can be a complex subject. Successive revisions to the Building Regulations over the past 30 years have tightened up rules and learned lessons from notable fires in public places, such as Summerland (), Bradford .
