Supporting pipe runs. When and where?

The gas code has requirements for fixing copper pipe runs, connections, bends, valves.
The supports (clips) need to be of the same material as the pipe or a compatible material.
We need to fix them with screw or rivets or nuts and bolts.
Spacing on a horizontal pipe run is maximum 600 (no law against closer)
A vertical run can have spacing up to 1250mm (a bit too far apart for my liking)
We also need to be within 150mm of Tee fittings, branches’, bends, valves etc.
