June 21, 1982

Mr. Don Hughes
Houston Valve & Repair Company
P.O. Box 16386
Houston, Texas 77022

Dear Mr. Hughes
This is in response to your letter dated March 29, 1982, inquiring whether use of remanufactured valves can be in compliance with 49 CFR Part 195.
Although Part 195 does not use the term “remanufactured” with reference to valves, their use is not precluded by Part 195. For purposes of compliance with §195.116, there is no distinction between new and remanufactured valves. Therefore, Part 195 requirements apply to both new and remanufactured valves.

We hope this fully answers your question.


Melvin A. Judah
Acting Associate Director for
Pipeline Safety Regulation
