Rule/Notice/NOFO: FRA NPRM on Safety Glazing Standards for Exterior Windows on Railroad Equipment
Published: April 18, 2022
Comment Period Ends/Due Date: June 17, 2022
Federal Register/Notice: Federal Register :: Safety Glazing Standards; Codifying Existing Waivers and Adding Test Flexibility
Summary: FRA proposes to codify existing waivers related to Part 223 safety glazing standards for exterior windows, add a new testing option, and update section headings. The waivers under Part 223 FRA granted waivers on a case-by-case basis for older railroad equipment. This proposal would eliminate the need to use the waiver process for relief.
