Control Room Management
On June 16, 2011 the new PHMSA standards for Control Room Management (49 CFR §192.631 & §195.446) were signed into law. The final rule requires pipeline operators with a control room to achieve aspects of the new CRM policy implementation and compliance by October 1, 2011.
Optimized Pipeline Solutions has taken extensive time to study the PHMSA requirements and inspection procedure for the new CRM rules. Our Control Room Management consultants will work closely with your organization to implement the policy and procedures needed to be compliant by October 1, 2011.
