Pipeline Safety: Information Collection Gas Distribution Annual Report Form
Request for public comments and OMB approval of modifications to an existing information collection.
As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published a notice in the Federal Register on December 4, 2009, under Docket No. PHMSA-2004-19854 of its intent to revise the agency's Gas Distribution System Annual Report Form (PHMSA F 7100.1-1). PHMSA F 7100.1-1 is covered under the PHMSA information collection titled: ``Incident and Annual Reports for Gas Pipeline Operators,'' with an OMB Control Number of 2137-0522. PHMSA is publishing this notice to respond to comments and announce that the revised information collection will be submitted to OMB for approval. This notice also informs operators of gas distribution systems that PHMSA is planning for the revised Annual Report Form, once approved, to be used for the 2010 calendar year and submitted to PHMSA by March 15, 2011. The portion of the annual report relative to mechanical fitting (compression couplings) failures will be delayed by one year and will take effect starting with the 2011 calendar year.
