Monetary Threshold for Reporting Rail Equipment Accidents/Incidents for Calendar Year 2016
This rule maintains the rail equipment accident/incident monetary reporting threshold at $10,500 for railroad accidents/ incidents involving property damage that occur during calendar year (CY) 2016 that FRA's accident/incident reporting regulations require to be reported to the agency. FRA is maintaining the reporting threshold at the same level it did in CY 2015, and CY 2014, because, in part, the wage and equipment data for the second-quarter of 2015 (i.e., the data used to calculate the threshold) changed only slightly (about 1 percent) from second-quarter 2014 values. In addition, FRA is maintaining the monetary threshold for CY 2016 at the CY 2015 level while it reexamines the method for calculating the monetary threshold.
