API RP 1162, Version 3 Goes to Letter Ballot

API published RP 1162 Pipeline Public Awareness, version 3 for public comment and ballot. To view this draft version, click here.  The deadline for submitting comments is April 13, 2020.  Once the final version is published, our understanding is that PHMSA intends to eventually incorporate this version of RP 1162 into Parts 192 and 195.  There are many changes from RP 1162, version 1 to version 3.  The most significant change appears to be how operators evaluate the effectiveness of their public awareness program, including standardizing the effectiveness assessment questionnaire.  To submit public comments, click here and enter 5075 in the Ballot ID Number field.
