ABSTRACT: On May 30, 1996, FRA, by issuing an Interim Final Rule, amended FRA�s signal system reporting requirements to reduce signal system reporting burdens on the rail industry. At that time FRA also amended its regulations governing applications for approval of discontinuance or material modification of a signal system and also consolidated certain pneumatic valve cleaning and testing intervals to eliminate overlapping and unnecessary test schedules. This document discusses comments received in response to the notice of Interim Final Rule and adopts the Interim Final Rule as a permanent final rule.
