Passenger Equipment Safety Standards; Correction
On November 21, 2018, FRA published a final rule amending FRA's passenger equipment safety standards. In preparing the final rule for publication, an error was made that led to the inadvertent removal of rule text. FRA is correcting that minor error to restore the rule text so that the final rule clearly conforms to FRA's intent.
Railroad Noise Emission Compliance Regulations
In this final rule, FRA is eliminating the requirement that certain locomotives display a badge or tag to demonstrate the railroad has certified the locomotives comply with noise emission standards. This final rule reduces economic burdens on the rail industry by removing this badge or tag requirement.
Railroad Safety Advisory Committee
FRA announces the fifty-eighth meeting of the RSAC, a Federal Advisory Committee that develops railroad safety regulations through a consensus process.
