The information collected under 49 CFR parts 233, 235, and 236 is used by FRA to monitor railroad compliance with FRA’s inspection and testing requirements for signal systems, as well as to review and approve railroad requests to discontinue or materially modify existing signal systems. The information collected is also used by FRA to monitor signal failures (e.g., failure of a signal appliance, device, method, or system to function or indicate as required by 49 CFR part 236 that results in a more favorable aspect than intended or other condition hazardous to the movement of a train). This collection of information is mandatory, collected as needed, and it involves both reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

The current OMB inventory for this information collection shows a total burden of 444,820 hours and 1,673,437 responses, while the requesting inventory estimates a total burden of 222,747 hours and 943,412 responses. Overall, the burden for this submission has decreased by 222,073 hours and decreased by 730,025 responses. There is no change in the method of the collection. The decrease in burden is solely the result of adjustments (including the annual cost burden). As detailed in the supporting justification under question 15, FRA has determined some of the previous estimates were preliminary, outdated, or duplicative. For instance, the burden under § 236.110 was significantly reduced because more railroads are using electronic instead of paper form records.
