On September 12, 2014 (79 FR 54676), the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published a notice in the federal register correcting the language it issued in a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) under Docket No. PHMSA–2012–0260 (HM–233E) on August 12, 2014 (79 FR 47047), that proposes to include the standard operating procedures and criteria used to evaluate applications for special permits and approvals under the Hazardous Materials Regulations. The NPRM addresses certain matters identified in the Hazardous Materials Transportation Safety Act of 2012 related to these procedures as they are executed by PHMSA’s Office of Hazardous Materials Safety’s Approvals and Permits Division. This correction adds language to clarify that special permit and approval applications that undergo review by an Operating Administration (OA) will complete this review before they undergo an automated review. This proposed correction also clarifies that an OA review, depending on its completeness, may negate the need for the automated review. The proposed rule published on August 12, 2014 is corrected as of September 12, 2014.
