Pipeline Enforcement Procedures

Comprehensive Enforcement Procedures provide structure to PHMSA’s pipeline enforcement program.  The Enforcement Procedures institutionalize learnings/best practices, improve nationwide consistency with a unified approach to enforcement, identify individual responsibilities and expectations for completing each step, and how documents and information flow between individuals and organizations in processing enforcement cases.  The Enforcement Procedures include detailed risk-based criteria for selecting enforcement actions.
