NFPA 55 Scope and Applicability

I am interested in the Correct and Compliant method of storing gas cylinders used for welding.


I purchased NFPA 51B ("Hot Work"), which refers back to NFPA 55 for cylinder storage requirements.


In looking at NFPA 55 Scope and Applicability, item (4) says that "This code shall not apply to....(4) cylinders used for welding in accordance with NFPA 51"


Which one is correct?


Must I now purchase NFPA 55 even though I read the Applicability first before purchasing the 51B?


Thank you,
