PHMSA Extends Deadline for Compliance with New Plastic Pipe Rule

The AGA filed a Petition for Reconsideration of the new Plastic Pipe Rule which was published as a final rule on November 20, 2018, and effective January 22, 2019 [83 FR 58694].

The American Public Gas Association (APGA) posted the following notice on its blog:

A letter distributed by Alan Mayberry, PHMSA Associate Administrator of Pipeline Safety, on March 1, 2019 provided several of the extensions that AGA proposed. In summary, PHMSA provided a 90-day extension, until April 22, 2019, for several of the compliance deadlines for implementation of training and operator qualification programs related to the new requirements. Additionally, PHMSA has granted a six-month extension, until July 22, 2019, to comply with certain provisions that require the development of new programs.

The response letter from PHMSA contains a chart outlining specific extensions.
