Dear Clock Spring Trainers and Installers,

PHMSA issued a recent NPRM (July 10, 2015, Docket No.PHMSA-2013-0163) that has potential implications on operator qualifications in the future. The NPRM expands the scope of the OQ rule to lines previously not subject to operator qualifications. In addition, it asks for a greater check on evaluators, trainers, etc. As always Clock Spring is proactively taking steps to adjust our training programs to completely comply with this potential rule. Operators who choose Clock Spring as their repair method will never have to worry about whether the Clock Spring training program complies with the latest legislation. We will continue to provide safety and training programs that exceed the industry standards.
In 2016, our trainers and installers will see electronic tests that pull questions randomly from a test bank. There will also be trainer audits and new training material from Clock Spring Company, L.P. The Clock Spring training modules will be divided into two programs. The first will include Clock Spring rigid pre-cured products including Clock Spring, Snap Wrap, Pipe Supports, Polyethylene Pipe Squeeze-Off Wrap, and Casing Spacers. The second module will include our wet-applied two part epoxy product, Clock Spring Contour.
Clock Spring is also proud to announce we now have an onsite Veriforce evaluator. We will be conducting evaluations on Common Covered Task 705. This is just one of many steps we are taking to make the OQ process to install a Clock Spring as simple as possible.
We look forward to working with you in the coming year. Check your inboxes for new material and more information in the coming weeks.


Clock Spring Company, L.P.
