Conduit touching each other

Ive noticed some of the conduit in my basement is touching each other.... what I mean is pipes from different circuits come in contact, at points where the installer maybe should have bent a saddle instead.

Is this an issue?

Conduit touching conduit is ok. Conduit touching water pipes.... like copper... is not ok.

If CAL = Calgary, they use copper for gas pipes up there too.. That's VERY not ok..

But yeah, there's nothing wrong with two electrical conduits touching each other. They are made of the same/very similar metals, and they are all connected to the same ground (or they are supposed to be anyway).
