Download as PDF 25644 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 83 / Monday, May 1, 2006 / Notices including reasons for repair delay, would occur when a pressure reduction exceeds 365 days. Also, PHMSA proposes to correct existing provisions for calculating a pressure reduction when making an immediate repair on a hazardous liquid pipeline. The proposed correction would allow operators to use another acceptable method to calculate reduced operating pressure when a specified formula is not applicable or results in a calculated pressure higher than operating pressure. Finally, PHMSA seeks the submittal of engineering analyses and technical data. These submittals are to provide the basis for modifying the required time periods for remediating certain conditions found during a hazardous liquid pipeline integrity assessment. PHMSA will use this data to evaluate the scope and scale of repair issues to develop an accurate basis for determining if any additional flexibility is needed in the repair schedules. Joint Meetings of the Technical Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Safety Standards Committee and the Technical Pipelines Safety Standards Committee Wednesday, June 28 (9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) The THLPSSC and TPSSC will hold a joint session from 9:30 am. to 4:30 p.m. to discuss the following regulatory matters. cchase on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES Preliminary Agenda for the Joint Meetings The day’s agenda includes these topics: • Reauthorization of the Pipeline Safety Act—Discuss status. • Data Improvement/Balance Scorecard—Discuss a variety of data quality improvements. Introduce the concept of a company performance scorecard to measure and manage company safety and compliance programs. • Performance Measures/Metrics— Discuss continuing efforts to improve pipeline safety by concentrating performance measures on serious incidents as a natural outgrowth of integrity management. • Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure—Discuss the waiver process criteria for reconsideration of the maximum allowable operating pressure of pipelines in certain class locations. • Operator Qualification—Discuss the comments received from the public meeting on the subject held on December 15, 2005 (70 FR 62162). The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss progress on the operator VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Apr 28, 2006 Jkt 208001 qualification program and to help PHMSA prepare the Report to Congress and the potential the American Society of Mechanical Engineers consensus standard offers for strengthening operator qualification programs. • Controller Certification Pilot Program—Provide a summary of the comprehensive review of existing controller qualification procedures and practices in industry and describe the recommendations drafted for inclusion in the draft report to Congress. Discuss NTSB recommendations on SCADA and human fatigue and report on solutions considered in preparation for the public workshop. • Public Education (PANEL)— Discuss the PHMSA Public Education Policy Statement and the status of a national clearinghouse to review updated operator plans. Brief members on the status of the sensitive security information designation of the PHMSA National Pipeline Mapping System availability to the public. Discuss the Common Ground Alliances’ status of the Dial 811 initiative and promote the success of the Regional Common Ground Alliances and the need to have one in every state. Technical Pipeline Safety Standards Committee Meeting Wednesday, June 28 (5 p.m. to 6 p.m.) The TPSSC will meet from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. to address the following two topics: • Internal Corrosion—Discuss and vote on ‘‘Design and Construction Standards to Reduce Internal Corrosion in Gas Transmission Pipelines’’ (70 FR 74262; 12–15–05). This document proposes regulations on the control of internal corrosion when designing and constructing new and replaced gas transmission pipelines. The proposed rule would require an operator to take steps in design and construction to reduce the risk that liquids collecting within the pipeline could result in failures because of internal corrosion. These changes would ease steps an operator must take in operating and maintaining the pipeline to minimize internal corrosion. • Gas Distribution-DIMP/Excess Flow Valves—Provide an update on the regulatory proposal and an update on Gas Pipeline Technology Committee guidance development. PHMSA will post more detailed agendas and any additional information or changes on its Web page (http:// phmsa.dot.gov) approximately 15 days before the meeting date.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Approval No.: 2138–0006. Title: Preservation of Air Carrier Records—14 CFR Part 249 . Form No.: None. Type Of Review: Extension of a currently approved recordkeeping requirement. Respondents: Certificated air carriers and charter operators. Number of Respondents: 120 certificated air carriers. 300 charter operators. Estimated Time per Response: 3 hours per certificated air carrier. 1 hour per charter operator. Total Annual Burden: 660 hours. Needs and Uses: Part 249 requires the retention of records such as: General and subsidiary ledgers, journals and journal vouchers, voucher distribution registers, accounts receivable and payable journals and legers, subsidy records documenting underlying financial and statistical reports to DOT, funds reports, consumer records, sales reports, auditors’ and flight coupons, air waybills, etc. Depending on the nature of the document, the carrier may be required to retain the document for a period of 30 days to 3 years. Public charter operators and overseas military personnel charter operators must retain documents which evidence or reflect deposits made by each charter participant and commissions received by, paid to, or deducted by travel agents, and all statements, invoices, bills and receipts from suppliers or furnishers of goods and services in connection with the tour or charter. These records are PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25645 retained for 6 months after completion of the charter program. Not only is it imperative that carriers and charter operators retain source documentation, but it is critical that we ensure that DOT has access to these records. Given DOT’s established information needs for such reports, the underlying support documentation must be retained for a reasonable period of time. Absent the retention requirements, the support for such reports may or may not exist for audit/validation purposes and the relevance and usefulness of the carrier submissions would be impaired, since the data could not be verified to the source on a test basis.
