For most types of rulemaking, PHMSA provides notice of a proposed regulation. These documents propose changes to the safety regulations for the purpose of obtaining public comment. Below is a list of notices of proposed rules, advanced notice of proposed rules, and corrections.

About Notices of Proposed Rulemaking
