How's My Regulating? PHMSA Seeks More Stakeholder Input

Posted on 6/12/2020 by Roger Marks

Hazardous materials shippers, carriers, packaging manufacturers, pipeline operators, and other stakeholders may soon have more ways to sound off about the way US DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) works with the regulated community.

PHMSA posted a notice and request for comment to the Federal Register on June 12, 2020. In it, they seek approval to collect insight into hazmat stakeholders’ “perceptions, experiences, and expectations.”

The plan is to collect information using customer surveys, comment cards, and other methods. The feedback will help PHMSA organize and focus their efforts, communicate more effectively with stakeholders, and evaluate changes to “improve delivery of products or services.”

The information will not be used to inform influential policy decisions in a substantive way.
PHMSA will accept public comments about the proposed feedback collection strategy until July 13, 2020.
