Members of the public should note that from the time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is no longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex parte contacts (other than ex parte presentations exempt under 47 CFR 1.1204(a)) are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this one, which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1208 for rules governing restricted proceedings.

Operating Procedures and Evaluation Process

AGENCY: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), 
DOT.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: PHMSA is correcting language it issued in a notice of proposed 
rulemaking under this Docket on August 12, 2014, that proposes to 
include the standard operating procedures and criteria used to evaluate 
applications for special permits and approvals under the Hazardous 
Materials Regulations. The NPRM addresses certain matters identified in 
the Hazardous Materials Transportation Safety Act of 2012 related to 
these procedures as they are executed by PHMSA's Office of Hazardous 
Materials Safety's Approvals and Permits Division. This correction adds 
language to clarify that special permit and approval applications that 
undergo review by an Operating Administration (OA) will complete this 
review before they undergo an automated review. This proposed 
correction also clarifies that an OA review, depending on its 
completeness, may negate the need for the automated review.

DATES: The proposed rule published August 12, 2014 (79 FR 47047), is 
corrected as of September 12, 2014.
