Pipeline Safety: Information Collection Activities, 6172-6174 [2015-02148]

Download as PDF 6172 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 23 / Wednesday, February 4, 2015 / Notices equipped with speedometers. Specifically, the standard only requires that if motorcycles are in fact equipped with a speedometer, that the speedometer be marked in 10 mph intervals. This has led Harley-Davidson to believe that NHTSA has implicitly acknowledged that a speedometer is not, itself, necessary for the safe operation of motorcycles, which is consistent with NHTSA’s decision in 1982 to rescind FMVSS No. 127 which had required installation of speedometers on all vehicles. (B) Harley-Davidson also stated that while the labeling error constitutes a technical noncompliance with table 3, footnote 4, of FMVSS No. 123, the noncompliance does not affect any aspect of vehicle performance— braking, steering, acceleration, visibility, etc. The speedometer remains fully visible to the operator and Harley-Davidson believes that the 20 mph numeral intervals adequately provide indication of speed to the rider. (C) Harley-Davidson believes that the lack of 10 mph numerical labels will not present confusion for riders, as evidenced by the lack of complaints, claims or incidents. Furthermore, they believe that motorcycle owners typically also own and operate other vehicles, such as passenger cars and light trucks, which are not subject to any speedometer graduation requirements and which, in many cases, are equipped with speedometers with 20 mph numeral intervals. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Harley-Davidson has additionally informed NHTSA that beginning on August 12, 2014 it corrected the noncompliance so that the subject motorcycles produced on or after that date fully comply with FMVSS No. 123. In summation, Harley-Davidson believes that the described noncompliance of the subject motorcycles is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety, and that its petition, to exempt Harley-Davidson from providing recall notification of noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118 and remedying the recall noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120 should be granted. NHTSA Decision NHTSA Analysis: The purpose of FMVSS No. 123 is to minimize accidents caused by operator error in responding to the motoring environment by standardizing certain motorcycle controls and displays. In the case of the subject vehicles, the agency believes that the incomplete labeling of the analog speedometers at 20 mph intervals instead of the 10 mph intervals as required by FMVSS No. 123 does not conflict with motorcycle speedometer standardization. Although numerals do not appear at 10 mph intervals, the fundamental components for motorcycle speedometer standardization are still present—MPH increase in a clockwise direction, major graduations appear at 10 mph interval, minor graduations VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Feb 03, 2015 Jkt 235001 appear at 5 mph intervals, and numerical labeling is provided at 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 mph. In addition, a top speed of 110 mph is delineated on the gauge at the required 10 mph major graduation which reinforces to the operator, that the major graduations are in fact at 10 mph intervals further reducing the likelihood of any speedometer confusion. Harley-Davidson correctly notes that UN ECE Regulation 39, a commonlyused international speedometer standard, states that for vehicles manufactured for sale in any country where imperial units are used, the speed shall be indicated on the dial at intervals not exceeding 20 mph, and commencing at 10 to 20 mph. This is consistent with the speedometer markings on the subject noncompliant motorcycles. As noted by Harley-Davidson, most motorcyclists typically own and operate other vehicles such as passenger vehicles and light trucks which must comply with FMVSS NO. 101, Controls and Displays. However, that standard does not specify requirements for speedometer graduations, numerical intervals or markings. Many of these vehicles have speedometer markings at 20 mph intervals. The agency believes that motorcyclists, accustomed to seeing speedometers with 20 mph intervals, will not be confused due to the omission of numerals at every 10 mph delineation on the subject motorcycle speedometers. The XG 500 and 750 models are Harley-Davidson’s low-displacement entry-level motorcycles which tend to be operated, in part, by less experienced riders with limited familiarity with motorcycle controls and displays. With marking at 20 mph intervals versus 10, the speedometer face is less cluttered allowing these beginning riders to more easily determine vehicle speed and recognize other information displayed on the speedometer face such as turn signal activation, neutral gear position, and fuel and oil level indicators. The 20 mph increments on the speedometers mounted on the subject motorcycles, adequately provide vehicle speed indication to the vehicle operators. Although numerals marking some of the major 10 mph graduations are not present, there is no ambiguity as to the meaning of the graduations, and speedometer standardization between motorcycles is effectively maintained. Lastly, the Agency agrees with HarleyDavidson that the noncompliance does not affect any aspect of vehicle performance related to braking, steering, acceleration or visibility. PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NHTSA Decision: In consideration of the foregoing, NHTSA has decided that Harley-Davidson has met its burden of persuasion that the FMVSS No. 123 noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Accordingly, Harley-Davidson’s petition is hereby granted and Harley-Davidson is exempted from the obligation of providing notification of, and a remedy for, that noncompliance under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, this decision only applies to the subject motorcycles that Harley-Davidson no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, the granting of this petition does not relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant motorcycles under their control after Harley-Davidson notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background Section 1320.8(d), Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and affected agencies an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping requests. This notice identifies an information collection request that PHMSA will be submitting to OMB for minor revision and extension approval. The information collection expires July 31, 2015, and is identified under OMB Control No. 2137–0047, titled: ‘‘Transportation of Hazardous Liquids by Pipeline: Recordkeeping and Accident Reporting.’’ This information collection address general recordkeeping and and accident reporting requirements for hazardous liquid pipeline operators under 49 CFR part 195. B. Hazardous Liquid Accident Report Instructions PHMSA intends to revise only the instructions for the form PHMSA F 7000–1 ACCIDENT REPORT— HAZARDOUS LIQUID PIPELINE SYSTEMS (Hazardous Liquid Accident Report, report) to clarify two areas addressed under the ‘‘Part A General Report Information’’ area of the instructions. Background for these topics is as follows: Part A, Question 9,’’volume of commodity released unintentionally’’ clarification: The instructions for Part A, Question 9 detail how to report the amount of material unintentionally released from the pipeline as a result of the accident. PHMSA is proposing to simplify the instructions relating to the removal of material from the pipeline and clarify the reporting of product consumed by fire. One of the proposed revisions simplifies the instructions by removing discussion of product removed from the pipeline system at locations remote from the failure site. During accident response, pipeline operators often PO 00000 Frm 00135 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6173 remove product at locations remote from the failure site. These controlled product movements are from within the pipeline system and irrelevant to the category. The ‘‘volume of commodity released unintentionally’’ only applies to the product released from the pipeline system at the failure site. PHMSA also proposes to revise the instructions for including product consumed by fire in the spill volume. PHMSA proposes to revise this provision to specify that the product consumed by fire inside a tank should not be included in the category of ‘‘volume released unintentionally.’’ If product is consumed under any other circumstances, the volume consumed by fire is included in volume released. PHMSA is proposing these revisions to ensure that volumes appropriate for analysis of safety performance trends are reported by pipeline operators. These proposed revisions to the instructions will not increase the hourly burden estimate for this information collection. Part A, Question 11, ‘‘volume of commodity recovered’’ clarification: The instructions for Part A, Question 11 detail how to report the amount of product recovered after the accident. PHMSA is proposing to simplify the instructions relating to the recovery of product by removing the discussion of product removed from the pipeline system at locations remote from the failure site. These controlled product movements are from within the pipeline system and irrelevant to the ‘‘volume of commodity recovered’’ category for the same reasons given in the above discussion on Question 9. This proposed revision to the instructions will not increase the hourly burden estimate for this information collection. C. General Information In addition to the Hazardous Liquid Accident Reporting form, this information collection renewal applies to many existing general recordkeeping requirements in 49 CFR part 195 that remain unchanged. Part 195 applies to the safe operation of hazardous liquid pipelines. Some of the general recordkeeping requirements covered are specified in § 195.404 and include maps and locations of the operators pipeline facilities, certain crossings (i.e., public roads, railroads, rivers, etc.), maximum allowable operating pressure of the pipeline, repairs and inspections. This information collection also includes the estimated burden for operators that install new computational pipeline monitoring leak detection systems as required to comply with the American Petroleum Institute’s recommended E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 6174 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 23 / Wednesday, February 4, 2015 / Notices practice API 1130 ‘‘Computational Pipeline Monitoring for Liquid Pipelines’’ (API 1130).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    Section 1320.8(d), Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires 
PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and affected agencies 
an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping 
requests. This notice identifies an information collection request that 
PHMSA will be submitting to OMB for minor revision and extension 
approval. The information collection expires July 31, 2015, and is 
identified under OMB Control No. 2137-0047, titled: ``Transportation of 
Hazardous Liquids by Pipeline: Recordkeeping and Accident Reporting.'' 
This information collection address general recordkeeping and and 
accident reporting requirements for hazardous liquid pipeline operators 
under 49 CFR part 195.

B. Hazardous Liquid Accident Report Instructions

    PHMSA intends to revise only the instructions for the form PHMSA F 
7000-1 ACCIDENT REPORT--HAZARDOUS LIQUID PIPELINE SYSTEMS (Hazardous 
Liquid Accident Report, report) to clarify two areas addressed under 
the ``Part A General Report Information'' area of the instructions. 
Background for these topics is as follows:
    Part A, Question 9,''volume of commodity released unintentionally'' 
clarification:
    The instructions for Part A, Question 9 detail how to report the 
amount of material unintentionally released from the pipeline as a 
result of the accident. PHMSA is proposing to simplify the instructions 
relating to the removal of material from the pipeline and clarify the 
reporting of product consumed by fire.
    One of the proposed revisions simplifies the instructions by 
removing discussion of product removed from the pipeline system at 
locations remote from the failure site. During accident response, 
pipeline operators often remove product at locations remote from the 
failure site. These controlled product movements are from within the 
pipeline system and irrelevant to the category. The ``volume of 
commodity released unintentionally'' only applies to the product 
released from the pipeline system at the failure site.
    PHMSA also proposes to revise the instructions for including 
product consumed by fire in the spill volume. PHMSA proposes to revise 
this provision to specify that the product consumed by fire inside a 
tank should not be included in the category of ``volume released 
unintentionally.'' If product is consumed under any other 
circumstances, the volume consumed by fire is included in volume 
released.
    PHMSA is proposing these revisions to ensure that volumes 
appropriate for analysis of safety performance trends are reported by 
pipeline operators. These proposed revisions to the instructions will 
not increase the hourly burden estimate for this information 
collection.
    Part A, Question 11, ``volume of commodity recovered'' 
clarification:
    The instructions for Part A, Question 11 detail how to report the 
amount of product recovered after the accident. PHMSA is proposing to 
simplify the instructions relating to the recovery of product by 
removing the discussion of product removed from the pipeline system at 
locations remote from the failure site. These controlled product 
movements are from within the pipeline system and irrelevant to the 
``volume of commodity recovered'' category for the same reasons given 
in the above discussion on Question 9. This proposed revision to the 
instructions will not increase the hourly burden estimate for this 
information collection.

C. General Information

    In addition to the Hazardous Liquid Accident Reporting form, this 
information collection renewal applies to many existing general 
recordkeeping requirements in 49 CFR part 195 that remain unchanged. 
Part 195 applies to the safe operation of hazardous liquid pipelines. 
Some of the general recordkeeping requirements covered are specified in 
Sec.  195.404 and include maps and locations of the operators pipeline 
facilities, certain crossings (i.e., public roads, railroads, rivers, 
etc.), maximum allowable operating pressure of the pipeline, repairs 
and inspections. This information collection also includes the 
estimated burden for operators that install new computational pipeline 
monitoring leak detection systems as required to comply with the 
American Petroleum Institute's recommended

[[Page 6174]]

practice API 1130 ``Computational Pipeline Monitoring for Liquid 
Pipelines'' (API 1130). PHMSA is not proposing any revisions to these 
areas of the information collection.

D. Summary of Impacted Collection

    The following information is provided for this information 
collection: (1) Title of the information collection; (2) OMB control 
number; (3) Type of request; (4) Abstract of the information collection 
activity; (5) Description of affected public; (6) Estimate of total 
annual reporting and recordkeeping burden; and (7) Frequency of 
collection. PHMSA will request a three-year term of approval for this 
information collection activity. PHMSA requests comments on the
