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

51-fr-16362.pdf (434.28 KB)

This notice withdraws a proposal published in the Federal Register, Vol. 45, No. 66, at 22118 on April 3, 1980, to generate information to be used in evaluating the need for Federal regulation of gas piping inside buildings. Current pipeline safety regulations apply to gas distribution lines up to the meter at which point it is transferred to the consumer even where the gas meter is located inside a building. Review of comments to Notice I of this docket and comments received at both the December 13, 1983, and the December 10, 1985, Technical Pipeline Safety Standards Committee (TPSSC) meetings has convinced the RSPA that existing regulations defining a gas operator's responsibility for gas piping inside a building are appropriate.
