Pipeline Safety: Request for Special Permit, 80457-80458 [2015-32487]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 247 / Thursday, December 24, 2015 / Notices Notice of Calendar Year 2016 Minimum Annual Percentage Rate for Random Drug Testing Operators of gas, hazardous liquid, and carbon dioxide pipelines and operators of liquefied natural gas facilities must randomly select and test a percentage of covered employees for prohibited drug use. Pursuant to 49 CFR 199.105(c)(2), (3), and (4), the PHMSA Administrator’s decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drug testing rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the pipeline industry. The data considered by the Administrator comes from operators’ annual submissions of MIS reports required by § 199.119(a). If the reported random drug test positive rate is less than one percent, the Administrator may continue the minimum random drug testing rate at 25 percent. In calendar year 2014, the random drug test positive rate was less than one percent. Therefore, the PHMSA minimum annual random drug testing selection rate will remain at 25 percent for calendar year 2016. Reminder for Operators To Report Contractor MIS Data On January 19, 2010, PHMSA published an Advisory Bulletin (75 FR 2926) implementing the annual collection of contractor MIS drug and alcohol testing data. An operator’s report to PHMSA is not considered complete until an MIS report is submitted for each contractor that performed covered functions as defined in 49 CFR part § 199.3. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Reminder of Method for Operators To Obtain User Name and Password for Electronic Reporting In previous years, PHMSA attempted to mail the DAMIS user name and password to operator staff with responsibility for submitting DAMIS reports. Based on the number of phone calls to PHMSA each year requesting this information, the mailing process has not been effective. Pipeline operators have been submitting reports required by Parts 191 and 195 through the PHMSA Portal (https:// portal.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline) since 2011. Each company with an Office of Pipeline Safety issued Operator Identification Number should employ staff with access to the PHMSA Portal. The user name and password required for an operator to access DAMIS and enter calendar year 2015 data will be available to all staff with access to the PHMSA Portal in late December 2015. When the DAMIS user name and password is available in the Portal, all VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:57 Dec 23, 2015 Jkt 238001 registered users will receive an email to that effect. Operator staff with responsibility for submitting DAMIS reports should coordinate with registered Portal users to obtain the DAMIS user name and password. Registered Portal users for an operator typically include the U.S. Department of Transportation Compliance Officer and staff or consultants with responsibility for submitting annual and incident reports on PHMSA F 7000- and 7100series forms. For operators that have failed to register staff in the PHMSA Portal for Part 191 and 195 reporting purposes, operator staff responsible for submitting DAMIS reports can register in the Portal by following the instructions at: https:// opsweb.phmsa.dot.gov/portal_message/ PHMSA_Portal_Registration.pdf . Pursuant to §§ 199.119(a) and 199.229(a), operators with 50 or more covered employees, including both operator and contractor staff, are required to submit DAMIS reports annually. Operators with less than 50 total covered employees are required to report only upon written request from PHMSA. If an operator has submitted a calendar year 2013 or later DAMIS report with less than 50 total covered employees, the PHMSA Portal message may state that no calendar year 2015 DAMIS report is required. Some of these operators may have grown to more than 50 covered employees during calendar year 2015. The Portal message will include instructions for how these operators can obtain a calendar year 2015 DAMIS user name and password.
