Today the DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published the Federal Register two of the documents posted to DOT web sites last Friday that I have been discussing. The first is the joint PHMSA/FRA safety advisory on information needed in accident investigations (80 FR 22778-22779). The second is the PHMSA notice on emergency response information requirement (80 FR 22781-22782).
PHMSA is not soliciting public input on either document. In fact, the comment period on the first document is listed as closed on the Federal eRulemaking Portal (www.Regulations.gov; Docket # PHMSA-2015-0118).
