Title: +Rail Integrity and Track Safety Standards Amendments (RRTF) 
Abstract:

Proper recognition and understanding of dangerous track conditions and defects is critical to avoiding train derailments.

In order to facilitate industry use of continuous testing, the amendments would provide relief related to current reverification and repair requirements.
