Title: +Pipeline Safety: Periodic Updates of Regulatory References to Technical Standards and Miscellaneous Amendments (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the pipeline safety regulations to incorporate by reference all or parts of new, updated, or reaffirmed editions of voluntary consensus standards. The use of voluntary consensus standards allows pipeline operators to use the most current industry technologies, materials, and management practices available in today┬┤s market. It also would make nonsubstantive edits and clarify regulatory language in certain provisions. These amendments to the pipeline safety regulations would not require pipeline operators to undertake any significant new pipeline safety initiatives.
