Archived Rulemaking: Part 192-Transportation of natural and other gas by Pipeline Minimum Federal Standards Part 195-Transportation of Liquids by Pipeline: Welding Requirements

40-fr-27222.pdf (529.65 KB)

This amendment modifies the Federal safety regulations in §§ 192.241(c) and 195.228 to permit the standards in subsection 6.9 of API Standard 1104 for depth of undercutting adjacent to a weld root bead to be used in determining the acceptability of that undercutting on gas and liquid pipelines. Also, the requirements of §§ 192.227(a) (2) (i), 192.229(c) (1), and 195.222(a), concerning qualification and testing of welders, are similarly modified to be consistent with the standards of acceptability for production welds under §§ 192.241(c) and 195.228.
