Regional and National Involvement

Text Box:

The second edition of the comprehensive Compendium of State Pipeline Safety Requirements and Initiatives Providing Increased Public Safety Levels compared to Code of Federal Regulations, edited and published by the Safety Division staff was released in 2013. 

This publication has become a national technical resource and is a compilation of best practices and initiatives implemented by safety agencies across the nation.   It is published by the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives (NAPSR) and National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC).   

Edition 3 is expected to be released in 2016.  Below are links to the 2nd Edition:

Text Box:  In addition, the Safety Division is involved with many national organizations and includes membership on the Common Ground Alliance technology committee, the NARUC pipeline safety subcommittee in which New Hampshire chairs the subcommittee, the NAPSR legislative committee, the NAPSR grant allocation committee, the NAPSR compendium committee, the NFPA 58 Technical Committee on LPG. 

Regionally, the Safety Division annually participates in a 15 state eastern region NAPSR meeting and sponsors pipeline safety seminars annually through the six-state New England Pipeline Safety Representatives Seminar.  Last year’s seminar can be found here.

The U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s (PHMSA’s) Office of Pipeline Safety audits the Division’s Safety Program each year and consistently awards the Division high scores.  The Safety Program received a perfect score for the third year in a row during the latest evaluation for calendar year 2014.  Maintaining a highly qualified and knowledgeable inspection staff is a critical element for a high rating.
