Field Operations Overview

Achieving regulatory compliance with the pipeline safety regulations is the central goal of the Office of Pipeline Safety’s (OPS) enforcement efforts. OPS encourages companies subject to the agency’s regulations and oversight to develop rigorous compliance programs that help minimize the potential for violations. To foster compliance, the agency issues rule interpretations, advisory bulletins, frequently asked questions (FAQs), and holds public meetings and workshops, which are regularly posted on the PHMSA website including information relating to enforcement, inspections, and drug and alcohol requirements.
