Propane Tank Pipe


I have two questions about buried residential propane pipe.

Does code require a tracer wire along side a buried plastic propane pipe?

Does code require warning tape above a buried propane pipe.

I know code requirements vary per jurisdiction. Just would like to know the general requirements.

To answer your questions as they would apply in my area, BC: 1) yes 2) no, but it couldn't hurt.
