Recently the Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) of the US Department of Transportation signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Pipeline Standards Developing Organizations Coordinating Council (PSDOCC). This MOA is intended to enhance the cooperation and coordination between the Parties to facilitate a more effective and efficient integration of pipeline safety research and development (R&D) results into the development and revision of voluntary consensus technical standards. This effort is the first of its kind in the US for the pipeline industry. This presentation will provide background about the PSDOCC and its role in the development of standards and its role of technology transfer for the pipeline industry — moving knowledge from R&D into industry standards and education into possible regulations.
