NAPSR National Chair
Welcome to the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives ("NAPSR") website. NAPSR is a non-profit organization of state pipeline safety regulatory personnel who serve to promote pipeline safety in the United States and its territories. NAPSR members support the safe delivery of pipeline products by conducting inspections of pipeline operators to determine compliance with applicable state and federal pipeline safety requirement. These inspections and administration of the state programs is conducted under a certification agreement with USDOT's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration ("PHMSA"). NAPSR member states also partner with PHMSA to help discuss, determine, and promote regulations and safety factors to enhance the safe delivery of natural gas, hazardous liquids, and other gas products.
As I begin my term as NAPSR Chair, stakeholders continue to experience a difficult time with the COVID-19 pandemic, unprecedented weather, and general civil unrest. I personally want to thank all the people who continue to work hard every day to make the gas and liquid pipelines in our country as safe as possible. The job you do is particularly important, and the continued good results are due to dedication and diligence on the part of everyone involved. If you have specific concerns related to pipeline safety, please reach out to us.
I hope you will find the information included on our website informative and helpful. For contact information please see Contact Page or visit "State Program Managers" page for individual state contact information. We look forward to another year of working with PHMSA, the state programs and the operators to help ensure the safety of the public.
