In carrying out PCSRs, subject matter experts from TSA, using a risk-based approach, visit select pipeline owners/ operators throughout the nation. These are voluntary face-to-face visits, usually at the headquarters facility of the pipeline owner/operator. Typically, TSA sends one to three employees to conduct a three- to four-hour interview with representatives from the owner/ operator. The TSA representatives analyze the owner/operator’s security plan and determine if the mitigation measures included in the plan are being properly implemented. TSA then may visit one or two of the owner/operator’s assets to further assess the implementation of the owner/operator’s security plan. TSA has developed a question set to aid in the conducting of PCSRs. The PCSR Question Set drives the TSAowner/operator discussion and is the central data source for all security information collected. The PCSR Question Set was developed based on government and industry guidance to obtain information from a pipeline owner/operator about its security plan and processes. The questions are designed to examine the company’s current state of security, as well as to address measures that are applied if there is a change in the National Terrorism Advisory System. In application, topics such as security program management, vulnerability assessments, components of the security plan, security training, and emergency communications enable the PCSR Teams to assess the owner/operator’s security plan by evaluating a broad range of security issues such as physical security, cyber security, communication, and training. The PCSR Question Set also includes sections for facility site visits and owner/operator contact information.

This PCSR information collection provides TSA with real-time information on current security practices within the pipeline mode of the surface transportation sector. This information allows TSA to adapt programs to the changing security threat, while incorporating an understanding of the improvements owners/operators make in their security measures. Without this information, the ability of TSA to perform its security mission would be severely hindered. Additionally, the relationships these face-to-face contacts foster are critical to the Federal government’s ability to reach out to the pipeline stakeholders affected by the PCSRs. TSA assures respondents that the portion of their responses that is deemed Sensitive Security Information (SSI) will be protected in accordance with procedures meeting the transmission, handling, and storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 15 and 1520. The annual hour burden for this information collection is estimated to be 120 hours based upon 15 PCSR visits per year, each lasting a total of eight hours. Dated: April 26, 2016. Christina A.
