DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC40 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: Qualification and Certification of Locomotive Engineers; Miscellaneous Revisions 
Abstract:

This rulemaking would make conforming revisions to part 240 "Qualification and Certification of Locomotive Engineers" consistent with part 242 "Qualification and Certification of Conductors." The promulgation of the conductor certification regulation highlighted areas in the regulation governing locomotive engineer certification that may require conforming changes. Such changes could include amending the program submission process, adding 49 CFR 218, subpart F violations as revocable offenses, handling engineer and conductor petitions for review with a single FRA board, and revising filing requirements for petitions to the Locomotive Engineer Review Board. This regulation is expected to reduce stakeholder paperwork burden and compliance time costs without affecting safety on the nation's railroad system.
