INGAA comments on PHMSA’s Request for Revision of a Previously Approved Information Collection – National Pipeline Mapping System Program

INGAA supports PHMSA’s desire to improve its National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS) and make certain information more accessible to first responders and members of the public. However, INGAA has significant concerns with the scope and content of PHMSA’s Information Collection Request (ICR).

INGAA urges PHMSA to review its ICR with certain implications, stated in INGAA’s comments, in mind. PHMSA should also consider issuing this proposal as a rulemaking, instead of an isolated information collection request.

Finally, in an effort to accomplish PHMSA’s goal of modernizing NPMS but at a pace and cost burden that is sustainable for the regulated community, INGAA puts forward a counterproposal for PHMSA’s consideration.
