Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 50 / Thursday, March 14, 2013 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES recommendation, or if a railroad otherwise has knowledge that the equipment does not meet one or more of these conditions, take appropriate action to address the equipment’s derailment tendency as follows: a. For new equipment or equipment undergoing a redesign of its suspension system that will likely affect the lowspeed trackworthiness performance of the vehicle, as applicable, redesign the suspension system so that it meets truck-equalization industry standards, prevents wheel climb, and controls static wheel-load distribution under the conditions and within the limits specified in recommendation 1 of this notice. b. For existing equipment that is being placed in service over a new route that the railroad knows to have moredemanding track geometry conditions, or that has experienced one or more low-speed, wheel-climb derailments, as described in this notice, redesign the suspension system as described in recommendation 2a of this notice, or take other appropriate action to mitigate the derailment tendency, such as by ensuring that the track over which the equipment is operating is maintained to standards appropriate for the specific equipment type, or by placing operational restrictions on the equipment, or both. 3. For all new passenger equipment types designed with suspension springs, and for existing passenger equipment types with such springs when the springs are redesigned, ensure that the fatigue life of the springs and their corresponding maintenance intervals are determined using the AW3 loading condition. FRA encourages railroads and other industry members to take actions that are consistent with the preceding recommendations and to take other actions to help ensure the safety of the Nation’s railroads, their employees, and the general public. FRA may modify this Safety Advisory 2013–02, issue additional safety advisories, or take other appropriate actions it deems necessary to ensure the highest level of safety on the Nation’s railroads, including pursuing other corrective measures under its rail safety authority. Issued in Washington, DC, on March 11, 2013. Robert C. Lauby, Deputy Associate Administrator for Regulatory and Legislative Operations.

provisions of these regulations constitute collections of information 
under the PRA. The regulations issued by the OCC

of an IDI and an NGEP. 12 U.S.C. 1831y(e).
    The parties to a covered agreement must make the agreement
