Section G2411 (310) Electrical Bonding

Jump To Full Code Chapter
G2411.1 (310.1) Pipe and Tubing Other Than CSST
Each above-ground portion of a gas piping system other than corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) that is likely to become energized shall be electrically continuous and bonded to an effective ground-fault current path. Gas piping other than CSST shall be considered to be bonded where it is connected to an appliance that is connected to the equipment grounding conductor of the circuit that supplies that appliance.
G2411.2 (310.2) CSST
This section applies to corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) that is not listed with an arc-resistant jacket or coating system in accordance with ANSI LC1/CSA 6.26. CSST gas piping systems and piping systems containing one or more segments of CSST shall be electrically continuous and bonded to the electrical service grounding electrode system or, where provided, the lightning protection grounding electrode system.
G2411.2.1 (310.2.1) Point of Connection
The bonding jumper shall connect to a metallic pipe, pipe fitting or CSST fitting.
G2411.2.2 (310.2.2) Size and Material of Jumper
The bonding jumper shall be not smaller than 6 AWG copper wire or equivalent.
G2411.2.3 (310.2.3) Bonding Jumper Length
The length of the bonding jumper between the connection to a gas piping system and the connection to a grounding electrode system shall not exceed 75 feet (22 860 mm). Any additional grounding electrodes installed to meet this requirement shall be bonded to the electrical service grounding electrode system or, where provided, the lightning protection grounding electrode system.
G2411.2.4 (310.2.4) Bonding Connections
Bonding connections shall be in accordance with NFPA 70.
G2411.2.5 (310.2.5) Connection Devices
Devices used for making the bonding connections shall be listed for the application in accordance with UL 467.
G2411.3 (310.3) Arc-Resistant CSST
This section applies to corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) that is listed with an arc-resistant jacket or coating system in accordance with ANSI LC1/CSA 6.26. The CSST shall be electrically continuous and bonded to an effective ground fault current path. Where any CSST component of a piping system does not have an arc-resistant jacket or coating system, the bonding requirements of Section G2411.2 shall apply. Arc-resistant-jacketed CSST shall be considered to be bonded where it is connected to an appliance that is connected to the appliance grounding conductor of the circuit that supplies that appliance.
