Final Rulemaking submitted to OMB

The final rule “Pipeline Safety: Safety of Gas Transmission Pipelines, Repair Criteria, Integrity Management Improvements, Cathodic Protection, Management of Change, and Other Related Amendments” (otherwise known as RIN2) has been transmitted to the federal Office of Management and Budget for review.  This review can take up to 90 days to complete, but it does not always require that much time.  The DOT’s significant rulemaking website lists May 11, 2022 when they expect to publish the final rule in the federal register.
