As noted in the rule, FRA’s purpose for establishing the ERD and emergency waiver procedures is to provide an expedited process for FRA to address the needs of the public and the railroad industry during emergency situations or events. This Notice announces that the designated ERD for calendar year 2013 is docket number FRA–2013–0001. As detailed § 211.45, if the FRA Administrator determines that an emergency event as defined in 49 CFR 211.45(a) has occurred, or that an imminent threat of such an emergency occurring exists, and public safety would benefit from providing the railroad industry with operational relief, the emergency waiver procedures of 49 CFR 211.45 will go into effect. In such an event, the FRA Administrator will issue a statement in the ERD indicating that the emergency waiver procedures are in effect and FRA will make every effort to post the statement on its Web site https://www.fra.dot.gov/. Any party desiring relief from FRA regulatory requirements as a result of the emergency situation should submit a petition for emergency waiver in accordance with 49 CFR 211.45(e) and (f). Specific instructions for filing petitions for emergency waivers in accordance with 49 CFR 211.45 are found at 49 CFR 211.45(f). Specific instructions for filing comments in response to petitions for emergency waivers are found at 49 CFR 211.45(h).

(DPS) has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR Part 232—Brake System Safety Standards for Freight and Other Non-Passenger Trains and Equipment; End-of-Train Devices. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2012–0096. DPS seeks relief with respect to the application of certain provisions of 49 CFR Part 232, specifically, Section 232.409(d)—Inspection and testing of end-of-train devices. DPS’s end-of-train (EOT) devices use a transceiver manufactured by Ritron, Inc. DPS requests clarification that the previous waiver granted to Ritron, Inc. (see Docket Number FRA–2009–0015) for relief from the annual calibration for EOT devices may be considered to apply to DPS’s entire EOT product; or alternately, that DPS receive a complete waiver or its equivalent for DPS’s entire EOT product, which includes the Ritron, Inc. transceiver. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
