Surface Transportation Board February 2, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Waybill Data Reporting for Toxic Inhalation Hazards
Document Number: 2010-2150
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-02-02
Agency: Surface Transportation Board, Department of Transportation
The Board proposes to amend its rules with respect to Waybill Sample information railroads are required to submit to the Board. Currently, railroads that are required to file Waybill Sample information report a random sample of as little as 1% of carloads on a waybill. The proposed amendment, set forth below, would expand the carload Waybill Sample information submitted to include all traffic movements designated as a TIH (Toxic Inhalation Hazard). The revised reporting would commence with the January 2011 Waybill Sample collection.
