ABSTRACT: On December 6, 2016, FRA published an NPRM proposing to amend its regulations on passenger equipment safety standards. The NPRM addresses three main subject areas: (1) Tier III trainset safety standards; (2) alternative crashworthiness and occupant protection performance requirements for Tier I passenger equipment; and (3) the maximum authorized speed for Tier II passenger equipment. By this document, FRA is reopening the NPRM’s comment period, which closed February 6, 2017.
