Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Hazardous Liquids by Pipeline Retention of Radiographic Film

48-fr-9013.pdf (409.26 KB)

This final rule deletes the requirement in § 195.234(g) to retain radiographic film for 3 years after a line is placed in service and to map the location of the radiographed welds. The existing rule does not enhance safety but does impose a significant cost burden.
