The most recent amendment to the Gaseous Fuels Code Adoption Document (FS-212-14, dated August 1, 2014, effective October 1, 2014) includes specific requirements for natural gas or propane heating appliances installed in livestock and poultry barns that vent into the barn space.

A shortage of licenced holders who can design barn ventilation systems has made it difficult for owners of existing unvented heaters in livestock and poultry facilities to meet the January 1, 2016 deadline for compliance with clause 7.36.3. TSSA has therefore temporarily suspended enforcement of the January 1, 2016 deadline in clause 7.36.3 for existing heaters installed prior to October 1, 2014. TSSA will not enforce non-compliances with this particular code provision until the effective date of the next Gaseous Fuels Code Adoption Document. Fuel distributors and suppliers may continue to deliver fuel to such appliances.
