PHMSA Notice Operator Qualification FAQs

[Docket No. PHMSA-2020-0086]

PHMSA issued a Notice and Request for Comments regarding a revised set of operator qualification (OQ) frequently asked questions (FAQs) that will replace its current FAQs developed in 2003. The proposed revisions will provide greater clarity regarding PHMSA’s OQ regulations, and address the implementation of operator qualification regulations for gas and hazardous liquid pipelines. The revised FAQs would replace current FAQs that are outdated or no longer relevant, and will ensure that each FAQ is tied to a specific regulatory requirement.

Comments on the proposed revised FAQs are due February 16, 2021, and can be submitted via the E-Gov Website. Identify Docket No. PHMSA–2020–0086 at the beginning of your comments.

For a copy of PHMSA’s Notice regarding the revised FAQs, contact Jessica Foley.
