This website is designed to provide information to regulators, pipeline operators, contractors and vendors on the Operator Qualification (OQ) Rule (49 CFR Part 192, Subpart N and 49 CFR Part 195, Subpart G). This rule, which was adopted into the Code of Federal Regulations, requires pipeline operators to document that certain employees have been adequately trained to recognize and react to abnormal operating conditions that may occur while performing specific tasks.
The OQ Integrity Process is not intended to be the basis of future regulation. While increasing consistency and standardization will result in “raising the bar” by going above and beyond current regulation, this will be achieved by voluntary actions overseen by Process participants.
