SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

PHMSA published in the Federal Register of January 5, 2015 (80 FR 168), a document containing revisions to the Pipeline Safety Regulations. That document inadvertently removed paragraphs (b)(1) through (b)(4) in 49 CFR 192.153; incorrectly listed a cross-reference in § 193.2321(b)(1); incorrectly formatted the word “see” in various sections in parts 192, 193, and 195; and specified an incorrect authority citation in part 193. This document corrects the final regulations to address these issues.
