Pipeline safety regulations at 49 CFR 195.579(a) require operators to determine if the hazardous liquids they are transporting could corrode the pipeline and, if so, take adequate steps to mitigate that corrosion potential. If an operator fails to take adequate steps to mitigate internal corrosion, PHMSA may determine that the operator is not in compliance with 49 CFR part 195. Also, if the operator erroneously determines the fluid is not corrosive and does not take the necessary steps to manage the internal corrosion threat, PHMSA may determine that the operator is not in compliance with 49 CFR part 195. Although the base commodity may not be corrosive, all hazardous liquids regulated under part 195 could be corrosive during some phase of the production and/or manufacturing process when contaminants could be introduced.

The Pipeline, Inspection, Protection, Enforcement, and Safety Act of 2006, Public Law 109–468, Section 22, required PHMSA to review the internal corrosion control regulations to determine if the regulations are currently adequate to ensure that the pipeline facilities subject to the regulations will not present a hazard to public safety or the environment. PHMSA completed the required review and reported its results in a Report to Congress on June 23, 2008. To review the Report, log on to http:// www.phmsa.dot, click on ‘‘Pipeline Safety Community,’’ then click on ‘‘Reports to Congress.’’ In conducting this review, PHMSA identified the need to emphasize to the regulated community its responsibilities with respect to determining the need for internal corrosion preventive and mitigative measures.
