Hazardous Materials: Information Collection Activities, 20806-20809 [2020-07803]

Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 20806 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 72 / Tuesday, April 14, 2020 / Notices certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 236. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2020– 0030. Specifically, ASLRRA seeks relief from 49 CFR 236.586, Daily or after trip test, and § 236.588, Periodic test. Section 236.586(a) provides that, except where tests prescribed by § 236.588 are performed at intervals of not more than two months, each locomotive equipped with an automatic cab signal or train stop or train control device operating in equipped territory shall be inspected for damage to the equipment and tested at least once each calendar day or within 24 hours before departure upon each trip. Section 236.588 requires that except as provided in § 236.586, periodic tests of the automatic train stop, train control, or cab signal apparatus be made at least once every 92 days, and on multiple-unit cars as specified by the carrier, subject to approval by FRA. ASLRRA petitions to increase the time between inspections under § 236.588 to 184 days for a fiveyear waiver period, subject to conditions, during which time it aims to show that there would be no degradation in safety resulting from this change. ASLRRA states that like the locomotive controls covered under 49 CFR 229.23, today’s automatic train stop, train control, and cab signal apparatus devices use microprocessorbased technology. This technology provides enhanced safety for the following reasons: (1) The microprocessor-based system has diagnostics that monitor the functioning of cab signal equipment and records faults, particularly with respect to features relevant to the periodic inspection; (2) major faults are instantly addressed; (3) minor faults are addressed through later data analysis; (4) in some cases, railroads have the capability of analyzing the data remotely, without the need for the locomotive to be shopped; and (5) if the system detects a failure, the system goes into fail-safe mode and triggers a penalty air brake application. ALSRRA contends performing signal inspections pursuant to § 236.588 in conjunction with and under the same schedule as the locomotive inspections under § 229.23(b) would increase efficiency without compromising safety. 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 Department of Transportation’s Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, W12–140, Washington, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:26 Apr 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 DC 20590.

    Title: Inspection and Testing of Meter Provers.
    OMB Control Number: 2137-0620.
    Summary: This information collection and recordkeeping burden 
results from the requirements pertaining to the use, inspection, and 
maintenance of mechanical displacement meter provers (meter provers) 
used to check the accurate flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk 
packagings, such as portable tanks and cargo tank motor vehicles, under 
the HMR. These meter provers are used to ensure that the proper amount 
of liquid hazardous materials is being loaded and unloaded. These meter 
provers consist of a gauge and several pipes that always contain small 
amounts of the liquid hazardous material in the pipes as residual 
material and, therefore, must be inspected and maintained in accordance 
with the HMR to ensure they are in proper calibration and working 
order. These meter provers are not subject to the specification testing 
and inspection requirements in 49 CFR part 178. However, they must be 
visually inspected annually and hydrostatic pressure tested every 5 
years to ensure they are properly working as specified in 49 CFR 173.5a 
of the HMR. Therefore, this information collection requires that:
    (1) Each meter prover must undergo and pass an external visual 
inspection annually to ensure that the meter provers used in the flow 
of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings are accurate and in 
conformance with the performance standards in the HMR.
    (2) Each meter prover must undergo and pass a hydrostatic pressure 
test at least every 5 years to ensure that the meter provers used in 
the flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings are 
accurate and in conformance with the performance standards in the HMR.
    (3) Each meter prover must successfully complete the test and 
inspection and must be marked in accordance with 49 CFR 180.415(b) and 
173.5a.
    (4) Each owner must retain a record of the most recent visual 
inspection and pressure test until the meter prover is requalified.
