FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2011–0071. CN seeks relief from the 2-year periodic testing requirements of the rules, standards, and instructions contained in 49 CFR 236.377, Approach locking; 236.378, Time locking; 236.379, Route locking; 236.380, Indication locking; 236.381, Traffic locking; and 236.109, Time releases, timing relays and timing devices; on vital microprocessor-based systems. CN proposes that except when placed in service, disarranged, or vital software modifications are made, that the following test be completed at least once every 4 years to ensure the safety of microprocessor-based locking systems. These tests, at this interval, would replace the tests currently required for these systems. • Verify and record that the software has not changed since the previous testing. This is accomplished by verifying the Cyclic Redundancy Code, checksum, and/or unique check number (UCN) of the software in the solid-state device. • Test and record the interconnection to the signaling hardware and equipment outside of the processor (switch indication, switch locking, track circuits and indications, and searchlight signal indications). • Verify and record duration of any variable timers unless protected by a UCN.
