In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, PHMSA invites comments on an information collection under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control No. 2137-0047, titled ``Transportation of Hazardous Liquids by Pipeline: Recordkeeping and Accident Reporting.'' PHMSA is preparing to revise Form PHMSA F 7000-1 ACCIDENT REPORTHAZARDOUS LIQUID PIPELINE SYSTEMS which is included in this information collection. In an effort to streamline processes, PHMSA is also proposing to include within this information collection, information currently collected under OMB Control No. 2137-0598 regarding the incorporation by reference of the industry standard on leak detection. This recordkeeping requirement supports pipeline inspection and improves pipeline safety by providing early detection of a pipeline leak. PHMSA will request approval from OMB for the revision of the information collection.
