Rulemaking

The PHMSA Office of Pipeline Safety periodically issues rulemaking documents that propose or adopt changes to the regulations. You may participate in the rulemaking process by filing written comments on any rulemaking document that asks for comments, attending a public meeting, or by filing a petition for rulemaking that asks us to add, amend, or delete a regulation.

This section provides a list of recently published notices of proposed rulemaking, final rules, and a list of resources describing the rulemaking process. To view other regulatory actions, select one of the topics on the Mini-Menu to the right.

This site does not include all the documents associated with a particular rulemaking. If you want to review all the documents associated with a particular rulemaking or if you want to comment on a rule go on to http://www.regulations.gov.
