PHMSA Revision to OPID Assignment Request & Registry Notification

[Docket No. PHMSA-2018-0078]

The National Registry of Pipeline and LNG Operators serves as the storehouse for the reporting requirements for an operator regulated or subject to reporting requirements under 49 CFR Part 192, 193, or 195. This registry incorporates the use of two forms: OPID Assignment Request (PHMSA F 1000.1) and National Registry Notification (PHMSA F 1000.2). PHMSA proposes revising certain parts of these forms and instructions after receiving comments that it could be improved by more detailed reporting instructions. PHMSA has placed instructions for completing the Operator Assignment Request and the National Registry Notification forms in the docket. PHMSA will request a three-year term of approval for the information collection: National Registry of Pipeline and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Operators. Current Expiration Date: 7/31/2020.

Comments to the Office of Management and Budget are invited on: (a) The need for the proposed information, including whether the information will have practical utility in helping the agency to achieve its pipeline safety goals; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden on those who are to respond.

Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before January 17, 2019. Submit comments regarding the burden estimate, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Office of Management and Budget, Attention: Desk Officer for the Office of the Secretary of Transportation, 725 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20503.
