Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Natural and Other Gas by Pipeline; Interior Piping

45-fr-22118.pdf (720.66 KB)

This Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking invites comments relative to the need for Federal safety regulation of gas piping located inside buildings, whether these buildings be classified as commercial, industrial, a domicile, or places of congregation such as auditoriums, churches, or schools. Interior piping upstream from gas meters is currently subject to Federal or State regulatory authority as-well as local building codes, and compliance with Federal requirements may be inappropriate.
