Electronic Notifications to the OSFM - Pipeline Safety Division
State Law requires Pipeline Operators to notify the Office of the State Fire Marshal, Pipeline Safety Division of certain activities or changes in operations. Starting December 2018, pipeline operators may send certain required notifications or requests to OSFM by email to PipelineNotification@fire.ca.gov. All notifications and requests must be on a company letterhead. Examples of common notifications and requests include:
- Ownership Change
- Change of Service
- Hydrostatic Testing Notification
- In-Line (ILI) Inspection Waiver Requests
- Construction Notification
- Deferred Maintenance Requests (see ADB 2016-05)
Requests and notifications sent to OSFM via email fulfil State notification requirements only and do not meet requirements for reporting to or notification of the Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA).
For questions regarding electronic notifications, please contact the Pipeline Safety Division at PipelineNotification@fire.ca.gov or by phone at (562) 497-0350.
