Correcting amendments.


This document corrects a final rule published April 2, 1999 (64 FR 15926). The final rule incorporates by reference consensus standards for aboveground steel storage tanks into the hazardous liquid pipeline safety regulations. This document makes two minor corrections to the final rule. First, it adds an industry publication, American Petroleum Institute (API) 1130 to the list of incorporated references. Second, it corrects the reference to the API Standard 653 to include Addendum 2.


Effective February 1, 2000. The incorporation by reference of the publication stated in the rule was approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of February 1, 2000.

When RSPA published the final rule in the Federal Register, it inadvertently omitted industry publication API 1130, Computational Pipeline Monitoring (1st Edition, 1995), from 49 CFR 195.3, Matter incorporated by reference. This document corrects this omission in the reference list by adding a reference to API 1130 in § 195.3 (c)(2)(ii) and by renumbering subsequent references. Also, in the final rule the preamble section listed API Standard 653 (Addenda 1 and 2), but the regulatory text section listed API Standard 653 (Addendum 1). This document corrects this discrepancy by specifying API Standard 653 (Addenda 1 & 2) in both places. We regret any confusion these omissions may have caused.
