Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Gas or Hazardous Liquids by Pipeline; Welding Requirements

50-fr-49429.pdf (789.73 KB)

RSPA proposes to amend Parts 192 and 195 by generally conforming requirements for welding procedure qualification and for welder qualification. Identical performance standards are proposed for qualification of welding procedures under both regulations, except for retained provisions for low stress level gas pipelines in Part 192. Industry standards incorporated by reference would be retained for qualification of welders and for weld acceptability standards.
