R.E.B. Alert

Here's a brief look at what’s happening in the world of FRA Regulations.

49 CFR Parts 225, Monetary Threshold for Reporting Rail Equipment Accidents/Incidents for Calendar Year 2018. 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.
Dates: This regulation was effective March 5, 2018. This final rule is applicable January 1, 2018.
