Title: ●Pipeline Safety: Standards for Conducting Condition Assessments of In-Service Pipelines 
Abstract: This rulemaking would incorporate by reference consensus standards governing conduct of assessments of the physical condition of in-service pipelines using in-line inspection, internal corrosion direct assessment, and stress corrosion cracking direct assessment. Periodic assessment of the condition of gas transmission pipelines is required by 49 CFR sections 192.921, and 192.937. Periodic assessment of hazardous liquid pipelines is required by section 195.452. These sections allow use of the inspection techniques addressed in these standards. The regulations provide minimal requirements for the use of these techniques. Incorporation of the consensus standards would assure better consistency, accuracy and quality in pipeline assessments conducted using these techniques
