Background Notice of Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Approvals and Disapprovals The U.S. Secretary of Transportation announced on March 7, 2006, the five medical experts who serve on the MRB. Section 4116 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU, Pub. L. 109–59) requires the Secretary of Transportation with the advice of the MRB to ‘‘establish, review, and revise medical standards for operators of Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs) that will ensure that the physical condition of operators is adequate to enable them operate the vehicles safely.’’ FMCSA is planning updates to the physical qualification regulations of CMV drivers, and the MRB will provide the necessary science-based guidance to establish realistic and responsible medical standards. The MRB operates in accordance with FACA as announced in the Federal Register (70 FR 57642, October 3, 2005). The MRB is charged initially with the review of all current FMCSA medical standards (49 CFR 391.41), as well as making recommendations for new science-based standards and guidelines to ensure that drivers operating CMVs in interstate commerce, as defined in CFR 390.5, are physically capable of doing so.

ACTION: Notice; Issuance of Advisory Bulletin. SUMMARY: The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is issuing this Advisory Bulletin to inform pipeline operators about the standardized notification process for operator qualification (OQ) plan transmittal from the operator to PHMSA. This Advisory Bulletin also informs operators about the addition to PHMSA’s glossary of definitions of the terms ‘‘Observation of on-the-job performance’’ as applicable to determining employee qualification and ‘‘Significant’’ as applicable to OQ program modifications requiring notification. Finally, it makes other miscellaneous clarifications to assist operators in complying with OQ program requirements. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Warren Miller by phone at 816–329– 3815 or by e-mail at warren.miller@dot.gov regarding the subject matter of this Advisory Bulletin, or the Dockets Unit, (202) 366–4453, for copies of this Advisory Bulletin or other material in the docket. All materials in this docket may be accessed electronically at http://dma.dot.gov. General information about the PHMSA Office of Pipeline Safety (OPS) can be obtained by accessing OPS’s Internet home page at http:// www.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On March 3, 2005, PHMSA issued a Direct Final Rule (70 FR 10332) on VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:05 Dec 04, 2009 Jkt 220001 qualification of pipeline personnel which amended the requirements for pipeline operators to develop and maintain a written qualification program for individuals performing covered tasks on pipeline facilities. In response to implementation issues and questions that arose after the rule was published, PHMSA has previously published Advisory Bulletins regarding OQ programs. These bulletins remain relevant: • ADB–04–05, Operator Qualification Requirements, published November 26, 2004. • ADB–06–01, Notice to Operators of Natural Gas and Hazardous Liquid Pipelines to Integrate Operator Qualification Regulations into Excavation Activities, published January 17, 2006. Based on input from State pipeline safety program managers and the PHMSA Federal and State OQ Team, PHMSA has developed a standardized process for OQ plan transmittal from the operator to PHMSA. The team also developed definitions of the terms ‘‘Observation of on-the-job performance’’ as applicable to determining employee qualification and ‘‘Significant’’ as applicable to OQ program modifications requiring notification. PHMSA has added these definitions to its glossary of terms. Finally, the team identified other miscellaneous clarifications to assist operators in complying with OQ program requirements. II. Advisory Bulletin ADB–09–03 To: Owners and Operators of Hazardous Liquid and Natural Gas Pipeline Systems. Subject: Operator Qualification Programs. Advisory: This Advisory Bulletin informs pipeline operators about the standardized notification process for operator qualification (OQ) plan transmittal from the operator to PHMSA. This Advisory Bulletin also informs operators about the addition to PHMSA’s glossary of definitions of the terms ‘‘Observation of on-the-job performance’’ as applicable to determining employee qualification and ‘‘Significant’’ as applicable to OQ program modifications requiring notification. Finally, it makes other miscellaneous clarifications regarding OQ programs. Standardized Plan Transmittal Process Operators should send notifications of significant modification of an OQ Program to the OPS Information Resource Manager by e-mail at InformationResources PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64123 Manager@phmsa.dot.gov or mail to U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Office of Pipeline Safety, Information Resources Manager, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., East Building, 2nd Floor (PHP–10), Room E22–321, Washington, DC 20590. Note: Operators subject to regulation by State agencies are required to send OQ notifications directly to each State agency. Regardless of the delivery method, each notification to PHMSA should include: 1. OPID(s), operator name(s), HQ address. Name of individual submitting notification, Data/email/phone number, Commodity (gas/liquid/both), PHMSA Region(s) where pipeline(s) operate, and names of respective facilities or pipeline systems where changes apply. 2. Complete Plan accompanied by revision/change log and effective date of change(s). The plan should be notated such that changed areas of the plan can be readily identified. Employee-specific information (i.e., social security numbers) and testing material are not needed. Definitions With respect to the use of ‘‘Observation of on-the-job performance’’ as a means of determining employee qualification, PHMSA has added a definition of this term to its glossary of terms on the PHMSA Primis OQ Web site at http:// primis.phmsa.dot.gov/oq/glossary.htm. PHMSA also added a definition of the word ‘‘significant’’ to the glossary as it applies to modifications to an operator’s OQ program. The definitions read as follows: Observation of On-The-Job Performance 1. Observation without interaction during on-the-job performance does not provide an adequate measurement of the knowledge and skills of the individual; 2. PHMSA has determined that there are no covered tasks to date where observation of on-the-job performance is an adequate, sole method for examining or testing qualification; and 3. Observation of on-the-job performance does not measure the individual’s ability to recognize and react to abnormal operation conditions (AOCs). Significant As applicable to OQ program modifications, significant includes but is not limited to: increasing evaluation intervals, increasing span of control ratios, eliminating covered tasks, mergers and/or acquisition changes, E:\FR\FM\07DEN1.SGM 07DEN1
