ABSTRACT: The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) amends its radio standards and procedures to promote compliance by making the regulations more flexible; to require wireless communications devices, including radios, for specified classifications of railroad operations and roadway workers; and to retitle this part to reflect its coverage of other means of wireless communications such as cellular telephones, data radio terminals and other forms of wireless communications used to convey emergency and need to know information. This final rule is based upon recommendations from a rail industry and labor working group convened by FRA and upon review of comments received in response to the June 26, 1997 notice of proposed rulemaking (62 FR 34544).
