Information Collection

Request for public comments and OMB approval of existing information collection.

On September 4, 2008, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published a notice in the Federal Register of its intent to revise the agency's standardized forms for reporting pipeline incidents and accidents. PHMSA later extended the time for responding to that notice until December 12, 2008, and received timely comments from several pipeline operators, five trade associations representing pipeline operators, the association representing State pipeline safety regulators, two State pipeline regulatory agencies, and one public interest group. PHMSA is publishing this notice to respond to comments, provide the public with an additional 30 days to comment on the proposed revisions to the incident and accident report forms, including the form instructions, and announce that the revised Information Collections will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval.
