SUMMARY: PHMSA is correcting a Final Rule published in the Federal Register on May 19, 2005 (70 FR 28833). That Final Rule amended requirements for pipeline operators in 49 CFR parts 192 and 195 to develop and implement public awareness programs and incorporated by reference the guidelines of the American Petroleum Institute (API) Recommended Practice (RP) 1162. The document was assigned the amendment numbers 192–100 and 195– 84, which were already assigned to different amendments. This document corrects the amendment numbers, and corrects the language amending part 192 so that it is consistent with part 195. DATES: Effective June 20, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Blaine Keener by phone at 202–366– 0970, by mail at 400 7th St. SW., Room 2103, Washington, DC 20590, or by email at blaine.keener@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 19, 2005, PHMSA published a Final Rule in the Federal Register entitled ‘‘Pipeline Safety: Pipeline Operator Public Awareness Program’’ (70 FR 28833) under amendment numbers 192– 100 and 195–84. PHMSA discovered that a rule published on March 3, 2005 entitled ‘‘Pipeline Safety: Operator Qualifications; Statutory Changes’’ had been assigned unsequential amendment numbers and already existed as amendments 192–100 and 195–84. Since the existing amendment numbers are already in use, this document corrects the amendment numbers for the Final Rule ‘‘Pipeline Safety: Operator Public Awareness Program’’ to reflect correct numbering as 192–99 and 195– 83. The Operator Public Awareness Program Final Rule incorporated by reference API RP 1162 into 49 CFR parts 192 and 195. After the rule’s publication, PHMSA received a request to clarify the difference between the PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 35041 requirements in 195.440 (c) and 192.616 (c). The comment identified a language inconsistency requiring operators to ‘‘follow the general program recommendations of API RP 1162’’ in part 192, while part 195 specified that the operator ‘‘must follow the general program recommendations, including baseline and supplemental requirements of API RP 1162’’. PHMSA intended the amending language in parts 192 and 195 to be consistent. The language used in part 192 should match the language in part 195, which clarifies that the operator must follow both baseline and supplemental requirements of API RP 1162. In consideration of the foregoing, PHMSA corrects 49 CFR part 192 by making the following correcting amendments: List of Subjects in 49 CFR Part 192 Pipeline safety and Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. PART 192—TRANSPORTATION OF NATURAL AND OTHER GAS BY PIPELINE: MINIMUM FEDERAL SAFETY STANDARDS 1.

Pipeline Safety: Pipeline Operator Public Awareness Program

AGENCY: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), 
U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: PHMSA is correcting a Final Rule published in the Federal 
Register on May 19, 2005 (70 FR 28833). That Final Rule amended 
requirements for pipeline operators in 49 CFR parts 192 and 195 to 
develop and implement public awareness programs and incorporated by 
reference the guidelines of the American Petroleum Institute (API) 
Recommended Practice (RP) 1162. The document was assigned the amendment 
numbers 192-100 and 195-84, which were already assigned to different 
amendments. This document corrects the amendment numbers, and corrects 
the language amending part 192 so that it is consistent with part 195.

DATES: Effective June 20, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 19, 2005, PHMSA published a Final 
Rule in the Federal Register entitled ``Pipeline Safety: Pipeline 
Operator Public Awareness Program'' (70 FR 28833) under amendment 
numbers 192-100 and 195-84. PHMSA discovered that a rule published on 
March 3, 2005 entitled ``Pipeline Safety: Operator Qualifications; 
Statutory Changes'' had been assigned unsequential amendment numbers 
and already existed as amendments 192-100 and 195-84. Since the 
existing amendment numbers are already in use, this document corrects 
the amendment numbers for the Final Rule ``Pipeline Safety: Operator 
Public Awareness Program'' to reflect correct numbering as 192-99 and 
195-83.
    The Operator Public Awareness Program Final Rule incorporated by 
reference API RP 1162 into 49 CFR parts 192 and 195. After the rule's 
publication, PHMSA received a request to clarify the difference between 
the requirements in 195.440 (c) and 192.616 (c). The comment identified 
a language inconsistency requiring operators to ``follow the general 
program recommendations of API RP 1162'' in part 192, while part 195 
specified that the operator ``must follow the general program 
recommendations, including baseline and supplemental requirements of 
API RP 1162''.
    PHMSA intended the amending language in parts 192 and 195 to be 
consistent. The language used in part 192 should match the language in 
part 195, which clarifies that the operator must follow both baseline 
and supplemental requirements of API RP 1162. In consideration of the 
foregoing, PHMSA corrects 49 CFR part 192 by making the following 
correcting amendments:
