PUC Finalizes Pipeline Safety Rulemaking

On March 1, the Pennsylvania Utility Commission (PUC) finalized rulemaking to adopt federal regulations concerning pipeline safety.  The rulemaking will bring the PUC rules into accord with the federal regulations and the Federal Pipeline Safety Program.  The final rulemaking will amend 52 Pa. Code § 59.33 through the incorporation of Chapter 193 of the Code of Federal Regulations.  The rulemaking will become effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

  1. At least a body of rules have been set in place to govern pipeline executions, inspections, and protection. Thanks to you for providing the link to the actual citations, and thanks to the government for showing continuous support to social welfare and development.
