November 9, 2015: Petition for Waiver of Compliance

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration for a waiver of compliance from 49 CFR parts 240 and 242. Their relief is contingent on implementing and participating in the Confidential Close Call Reporting System pilot project. The project, C3RS, is designed to encourage crew members and railroads to report all close calls. SEPTA would like the reporting crew members and railroad to be protected from disciplinary actions and/or sanctions as a result of the information provided.
At this time FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing but will be accepting any comments from interested parties until December 24, 2015.

Docket Number FRA-2015-0084
