Operator Qualification Requirements
Covered Task 87: Conducting Interior Jurisdictional Piping Construction and Maintenance Activities required for repairs by Licensed Master Plumber performing work on Utility Jurisdictional piping.
When working on a below-grade gas service pipe on customer property, contractors are required to meet all local jurisdictional licensing requirements and to be qualified as an operator per the Code of Federal Regulations, Subpart N—Qualification of Pipeline Personnel.
In order to gain operator qualifications, the contractor must comply with the Operator Qualification Plan, which incorporates principle elements contained in the Northeast Gas Association Operator Qualification Plan Program.
Utility jurisdictional piping is defined as all piping, tubing, and fittings that transport gas from the main for the following:
- Inside meter(s) - the outlet of the meter
- Outside meter(s) - outside the building wall
Code Rule 753 Mark Outs and Safe Work Practices
Since all of Con Edison’s natural gas system, and much of the electric system, is located underground, complying with Code Rule 753 is crucial to ensuring the safety of the public and workers performing digging and excavation.
Contractors, customers, licensed plumbers, and electricians must inspect and maintain existing mark outs periodically.
When in doubt, call 811 for a new mark out.
