DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AF13 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Pipeline Safety: Standards Update Rule–-2015 and Beyond 

This NPRM proposes to incorporate by reference all or parts of new, updated, or reaffirmed editions of voluntary consensus standards. The practice of incorporating voluntary consensus standards allows pipeline operators to use the most current industry technologies, materials, and management practices available on today's market. PHMSA is also proposing to make non-substantive edits and to clarify regulatory language in certain provisions. These proposed changes would be relatively minor, and would not require pipeline operators to undertake any significant new pipeline safety initiatives.
