Review - OMB Approves Another Emergency TSA Pipeline Security ICR

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) published an approval for another TSA emergency information collection request supporting increased security oversight of gas and liquid pipelines. This emergency ICR update addresses changes to the Pipeline Corporate Security Review (1652-0056) which was most recently updated on April 15th, 2021. According to the supporting document [.PDF download link] provided to OIRA, this emergency ICR approval is needed to support a new TSA Security Directive for pipeline cybersecurity security operations.

As with most emergency ICR requests, OIRA gave rapid approval of the ICR request. Its approval was, however, only for 6-months. OIRA did required that TSA publish a 60-day ICR notice for this change within 90-days.
