"My boss just asked me to justify the cost. I told him that I would pay out of pocket if necessary"

"When I accepted the offer, I specifically said WinDOT had to be part of the package"

Gas Piping Technology Committee Guide for Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems


WinDOT™ now contains the complete Gas Piping Technology Committee Guide linked to the 49 CFR 192 code. Simply look for the GPTC logo in the code section, click, and the corresponding text from the Guide is displayed. Users now have a complete pipeline safety compliance tool at their fingertips. The Guide is included at no additional cost as part of your WinDOT™ subscription.

The current edition of the Guide was released October 31, 2003. This has been incorporated into the November 2006 release of WinDOT™  and includes updates through Addendum No. 4, January 2006.  New Addendums are to be released and will be added to the Rapid Update system.  Subscribers always receive the most current version of the GPTC Guide.
The primary purpose of the GPTC Guide for Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems (Guide) is to provide assistance to the operator in complying with the intent of the Code of Federal Regulations in the performance requirements contained in the Transportation of Natural and Other Gas by Pipelines, Title 49 Subchapter D- Pipeline Safety: Part 191- Annual Reports, Incident Reports, and Safety-related Condition Reports; and Part 192- Minimum Federal Safety Standards.
The Guide includes the Minimum Federal Safety Standards together with the design recommendations, material reference, and recommended practices of the Gas Piping Technology Committee. The function of the Committee's guide material is to provide "how to" supplementary recommendations related to the Minimum Federal Safety Standards. The Committee continuously works to pinpoint areas where more Guide type material could be utilized in support of the Minimum Federal Safety Standards.
