  10. PART 195 - Operator Qualification • Pipeline Employees and Contractors must be Qualified to perform Covered Tasks • Personnel must be Trained and Evaluated to ensure: • Safe and Proper Performance of Covered Task • Recognize and React to Abnormal Operating Conditions • Consensus Standard - ASME Standard B31Q
