FAQ-32: Archiving Versions of Baseline Assessment Plans
Question: Should operators archive previous versions of their baseline assessment plans so OPS can track changes to these plans over time?
Answer: Section 192.947(d) requires that operators maintain, for the useful life of the pipeline, documents to support any decision, analysis and process developed and used to implement and evaluate each element of the baseline assessment plan and integrity management program. Copies of the evolving revisions of the baseline assessment plan, and of plans for periodic reassessments, should be included with the records maintained under this section.
