PHMSA “Standards Barrel” Filing

INGAA supports the proposed incorporation of updated consensus standards into 49 C.F.R. Part 192 (“Part 192”).  INGAA and its members participate in many of the committees responsible for developing these standards, and INGAA recognizes that the value of the consensus process cannot be fully realized until the results of that process, revised and improved technical standards, are incorporated into PHMSA’s regulations.  The Proposed Rule takes this necessary, final step, and INGAA appreciates PHMSA’s effort.  INGAA supports the proposed miscellaneous edits to Part 192, while taking no position on the remaining miscellaneous edits.
