Background The TPSSC and the THLPSSC are statutorily mandated advisory committees that make recommendations to PHMSA on proposed safety standards, risk assessments, and safety policies for gas and hazardous liquid pipeline. These advisory committees are established under section 10(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92–463, 5 U.S.C. App. 1). The committees consist of 15 members—five each representing government, industry, and the public. The TPSSC and the THLPSSC are tasked with determining reasonableness, cost-effectiveness, and practicability of regulatory initiatives. Federal law requires PHMSA to submit cost-benefit analyses and risk assessment information on each proposed safety standard to the advisory committees. The TPSSC or THLPSSC evaluate the merits of the data and methods used within the analyses, and, when appropriate, vote on all recommendations relating to the costbenefit analyses. These committees also assist PHMSA with policy and other issues pertaining to pipeline safety. In addition to the advisory committee meetings, PHMSA will soon publish a separate notice to announce a public meeting on operator qualification regulatory considerations that will be held on December 15, 2005. This public meeting is being scheduled during the same week as the advisory committee VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:53 Oct 24, 2005 Jkt 208001 meetings to afford members of the advisory committees, State pipeline safety representatives, and the general public the maximum opportunity to attend both the advisory committee meetings and the operator qualification public meeting.
