This final rule amends the gas pipeline safety standards by making a number of editorial and other minor changes based on a petition for rulemaking submitted by the New England Gas Association and RSPA's review of the standards. The changes clarify the intent of the standards. In addition, the pipeline safety enforcement procedures are modified to reflect changes in agency practices regarding payment of civil penalties.
