ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This final rule revises the MMS requirements for reporting incidents associated with Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas and sulphur operations. The revisions will clarify the requirements, and provide more precise definitions and reporting timeframes. This will result in a more consistent incident reporting program and the collection of more reliable incident information. DATES: Effective Date: This rule becomes effective on July 17, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Ensele, Rules and Standards Branch, (703) 787–1583. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 8, 2003, MMS published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (68 FR 40585), titled ‘‘Oil and Gas and Sulphur Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf—Incident Reporting Requirements.’’ The proposed rule had an initial 90-day comment period that was extended by 60 days (68 FR 44910, July 31, 2003) to December 5, 2003. The proposed rule addressed amendments to MMS’ regulations related to reporting accidents and other incidents on platforms and other facilities on oil and gas and sulphur leases and related rights-of-way on the OCS. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with RULES Comments on the Proposed Rule We received 19 sets of comments on the proposed rule. Three of the commenters were industry trade organizations (Offshore Operators Committee (OOC), International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), and National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA)). We also received comments from one individual, two drilling contractors, ten operators, and one consultant. All of the comments VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:00 Apr 14, 2006 Jkt 208001 received are available for review on the MMS Web site at: http://www.mms.gov/ federalregister/PublicComments/ rulecomm.htm. Most of the commenters stated that the proposed rule was overly prescriptive and burdensome to the industry and MMS. In addition, most commenters expressed concern that MMS and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) were not making a sufficient effort to coordinate incident reporting. First, in this final rule we have scaled back most of the requirements contained in the proposed rule that the commenters asserted were overly burdensome. With regard to the second issue raised in these comments, this final rule addresses only MMS’ incident reporting requirements regarding incidents that occur during OCS oil and gas operations. However, MMS allows the operator to submit USCG forms where they contain all the information required in these regulations. In addition, we will continue to work with the USCG to coordinate our incident reporting requirements. In addition, the OOC commented that MMS does not say how the information collected by this rule will be used. Among other uses, the information required by the final rule will be used by MMS in: • Considering regulatory changes, • Determining research studies, • Identifying unsafe procedures, • Working with industry to develop standards, • Compiling accident statistics and trend analyses, • Deciding which incidents are serious enough to form an accident investigation panel, • Preparing operator performance statistics, and • Evaluating Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE) candidates. One commenter stated that the proposed regulations did not go far enough in reporting information concerning occupational safety. This commenter recommended that MMS require all employers to report occupational injuries and illnesses in accordance with criteria identical to those of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). There are employers on the OCS other than lessees and operators. This regulation, however, applies only to lessees and operators on the OCS. The regulations require the lessees and operators to report all pertinent incidents, regardless of whose employees were involved. The OSHA reporting requirements contain information that MMS does not need to perform its mission. We are requiring PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the reporting of only the information we need to oversee the OCS program. Several commenters, including the OOC, objected to the multiple timeframes for verbal and written reporting of incidents as being too complicated and burdensome. We agree with these comments, and have revised the rule to require immediate reporting of certain incidents via oral communication, with a written followup within 15 calendar days. In addition, the rule requires written reporting of certain less severe incidents within 15 calendar days. We have also eliminated the reporting forms contained in the proposed rule. This final rule allows the reporting company to use its own format for the written report, or a form prepared for another agency, as long as the required information is included. The proposed rule required that written reports be submitted electronically. We have dropped that requirement. The final rule does not specify or mention any method. You may submit written reports in whatever manner (mail, courier, personal delivery, fax, or e-mail) you choose. MMS may consider electronic submittal of information in future rulemaking. Several commenters, including the OOC, stated that the personnel injury categories in the proposed rule were not realistic for reporting purposes, and that they were too subjective. We agree with these comments, and have simplified the categories. This rule requires the immediate reporting of all injuries that require the evacuation of the injured person(s) from the facility to shore or to another offshore facility. A written follow-up report within 15 calendar days is required for any injury that results in days away from work, restricted work, or job transfer. In addition, the OOC and others expressed concern that the proposed rule may conflict with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) in that it may require employee health information to be disclosed. We agree with these concerns. This rule does not require that any employee identification information be reported to MMS. When a reportable injury occurs, this rule requires that the operator/lessee report the following: • Date and time of occurrence, • Operator and operator’s representative name and telephone number, • Contractor and contractor’s representative name and telephone number, • Lease number, OCS area, and block, • Platform/facility name and number, • Type of incident or injury/fatality, E:\FR\FM\17APR1.SGM 17APR1
