Gas clearances are sent upon 900 Final inspection approval for safety reasons. The 819 inspection is usually just for the underground piping. Approval of the 819 inspection is normally just to backfill or cover the trench and not all final testing, connections or related permits are complete at this time. If the permit only requires a single inspection for a gas repair, a clearance would be sent at that time.
