Hours of Service Recordkeeping; Automated Recordkeeping
Document Number: 2018-18639
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-29
Agency: Federal Railroad Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule is part of FRA's broader initiative to reduce the paperwork burden of its regulations while still supporting compliance with the Federal hours of service laws and regulations. Current regulations require employees covered by those laws or regulations (covered service employees) to create and retain hours of service records by hand (a paper system) or ``certify'' the record using a compliant computerized system (an electronic system) with program logic. Cognizant of the burden placed on small operations, FRA provides a simplified method of computerized recordkeeping (an automated system)in which employees apply their electronic signatures to automated records stored in a railroad computer system without the complexity and functionality of an electronic systemfor eligible smaller railroads (and contractors and subcontractors providing covered service employees to such railroads). This rule does not require the use of automated recordkeeping, but, when implemented by the small operations for which it is tailored, it will decrease the burden hours spent on hours of service recordkeeping.
