DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AE72 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: +Pipeline Safety: Gas Transmission (RRR) 
Abstract: In this rulemaking, PHMSA will be revisiting the requirements in the Pipeline Safety Regulations addressing integrity management principles for Gas Transmission pipelines. In particular, PHMSA will be reviewing the definition of an HCA ( including the concept of a potential impact radius), the repair criteria for both HCA and non-HCA areas, requiring the use of automatic and remote controlled shut off valves, valve spacing, and whether applying the integrity management program requirements to additional areas would mitigate the need for class location requirements.
