To ensure adequate public protection from exposure to potential hazardous liquid pipeline failures, PHMSA collects information on reportable hazardous liquid pipeline accidents. This mandatory information collection covers hazardous liquid pipeline accident report requirements in § 195.50 and general record keeping burden associated with complying with Federal hazardous liquid pipeline safety regulations in part 195. The definition of an “accident” and the reporting criteria for submitting a Hazardous Liquid Accident Report (form PHMSA F7000-1) is detailed in § 195.54. 49 CFR 195.54 requires hazardous liquid operators to file an accident report, as soon as practicable, but not later than 30 days after discovery of the accident, on DOT Form 7000-1 whenever there is a reportable accident the characteristics of an operator’s pipeline system.

Changing Regulations
The Pipeline Safety: Unusually Sensitive Areas for the Great Lakes, Coastal Beaches, and Certain Coastal Waters IFR amended the pipeline safety regulations to explicitly state that certain coastal waters, the Great Lakes, and coastal beaches are classified as unusually sensitive areas (USAs) for the purpose of compliance with pipeline safety regulations. PHMSA estimates that the new USA definitions in the IFR will require 2 operators of rural gathering pipelines that become regulated under Part 195.11 to establish record keeping programs to comply with part 195 requirements applicable to regulated rural gathering pipelines. This change results in an average annual burden increase of 2 responses and 272.62 hours (rounded up to 273 hours) per year for the record keeping component of this information collection.
