The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration is required by law to respond to safety recommendations issued by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), an independent federal agency charged by Congress with investigating significant incidents that involve hazardous materials. Recommendations usually address a specific issue uncovered during an investigation or study and specify how to correct the situation.

NTSB Classifications:

  • OAR - Open Acceptable Response
  • OAA - Open Acceptable Action
  • OAAR - Open Acceptable Alternative Action
  • OUA - Open Unacceptable Action
  • OUR - Open Unacceptable Response
  • UCL - Unclassified (until NTSB Classifies)
