We are committed to making all of our documents on the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) website accessible to everyone. As a result, we work hard to ensure the PHMSA site meets the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. While many of the web pages are generally accessible to individuals who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairment, we do have some documents in Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) format that are not currently compatible with some screen reading software. When possible, PHMSA provides an alternative HTML version in addition to the PDF.

The attached documents are in PDF format, click here to download a free viewer. People using screen-reading devices generally are unable to read documents directly in PDF format, unless they have an accessibility plug-in installed on their system along with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This plug-in is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe. Adobe also has online tools that will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe's accessibility tools and services, visit the Access Adobe site.

If you have problems accessing the PDFs or the information, please contact T'Mia Vines at 202-366-9818 and the information will be provided to you.
