Monetary Threshold for Reporting Rail Equipment Accidents/Incidents for Calendar Year 2018
Document Number: 2018-04349
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-03-05
Agency: Federal Railroad Administration, Department of Transportation
FRA's accident/incident reporting regulations require railroads to report to the agency all rail equipment accidents/ incidents above the monetary reporting threshold (reporting threshold) for that calendar year (CY). There is no change to the CY 2017 reporting threshold ($10,700) for CY 2018 as the overall increase in wages and equipment costs were not great enough to cause the threshold to change when rounded to the nearest $100.
