47-fr-9842.pdf (625.6 KB)

This final rule removes the requirement in § 192.455(f)(3) that a means be provided for identifying the location of each metal alloy fitting that is installed without coating and cathodic protection in plastic pipelines. The identification requirement is unnecessray for safety and hinders the use of corrosion resistant metal alloy fittings to mechanically join plastic pipe and components.
