Review - OMB Approves TSA Pipeline Cybersecurity ICR Update

Yesterday, the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved an information collection request extension from TSA on “Pipeline Operator Security Information” (OMB Control Number 1652-0055). The 60-day ICR Notice was published on June 30th, 2022 and the 30-day ICR Notice was published on October 14th, 2022.

This extension was required by OIRA’s approval of an emergency revision to this ICR back in May, 2021 supporting the changes in pipeline reporting requirements is Security Directive 1 (SD1). No changes were made in pipeline security reporting requirements in this extension; this is just a formal reporting of those program changes made in the emergency revision. There is, however, a change in the burden estimate for the changes previously made, since TSA did not provide an estimate of the burden change in their emergency revision request.

For more details on the approved ICR, including my commentary on the estimate of time necessary to collect and report the required information on cybersecurity incidents – see my article at CFSN Detailed Analysis - - subscription required.
