  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements apply to power-operated dispensing devices for petroleum products such as gasoline for use as motor fuel. Requirements for the installation and use of these dispensing devices are included in the Automotive and Marine Service Station Code, NFPA 30A, and the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.

    1.2 These requirements apply to wiring methods used to install or interconnect such control equipment when the equipment is located directly on or within the housing of the dispensing device. These requirements do not apply to control equipment that may authorize, monitor, or interrupt operation of a power-operated dispensing device. Such equipment includes panel mounted equipment located adjacent to the dispensing device, remote consoles located inside a permanent structure, and auxiliary equipment physically attached to the dispensing device or enclosed by the pedestal and housing.
