PHMSA Publishes Pipeline Civil Penalty Structure Online

Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, October 13, 2016

The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) today announced it has made a pipeline civil penalty framework available on its website. A respondent in an enforcement case may request a proposed civil penalty calculation related to that case. PHMSA also announced that it will, as appropriate, issue higher penalties, which serve as a strong deterrence, driving down incident risk.

A summary of the Civil Penalty Framework can be found HERE.
