PHMSA is responsible for regulating and ensuring the safe and secure movement of hazardous materials to industry and consumers by all modes of transportation, including pipelines.

To minimize threats to life, property or the environment due to hazardous materials related incidents, PHMSA's Office of Hazardous Materials Safety develops regulations and standards for the classifying, handling and packaging of over 1 million daily shipments of hazardous materials within the United States.

The Office of Pipeline Safety ensures safety in the design, construction, operation and maintenance, and spill response planning of America's 2.6 million miles of natural gas and hazardous liquid transportation pipelines.
