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.
