Sec. 241.1  Purpose and scope.

    (a) The purpose of this part is to prevent railroad accidents and 
incidents, and consequent injuries, deaths, and property damage, that 
would result from improper dispatching of railroad operations in the 
United States by individuals located outside of the United States.
    (b) This part prohibits extraterritorial dispatching of railroad 
operations, conducting railroad operations that are extraterritorially 
dispatched, and allowing track to be used for such operations, subject 
to certain stated exceptions. This part does not restrict a railroad 
from adopting and enforcing additional or more stringent requirements 
not inconsistent with this part.

Sec. 241.3  Application and responsibility for compliance.

    (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, this part 
applies to all railroads.
    (b) This part does not apply to--
    (1) A railroad that operates only on track inside an installation 
that is not part of the general railroad system of transportation; or
    (2) Rapid transit operations in an urban area that are not connected 
to the general railroad system of transportation.
    (c) Although the duties imposed by this part are generally stated in 
terms of a duty of a railroad, each person, including a contractor for a 
railroad, who performs a function covered by this part, shall perform 
that function in accordance with this part.

    As used in this part:
    Administrator means the Administrator of the Federal Railroad 
Administration or the Administrator's delegate.
    Dispatch means--
    (1) To perform a function that would be classified as a duty of a 
``dispatching service employee,'' as that term is defined by the hours 
of service laws at 49 U.S.C. 21101(2), if the function were to be 
performed in the United States. For example, to dispatch means, by the 
use of an electrical or mechanical device--
    (i) To control the movement of a train or other on-track equipment 
by the issuance of a written or verbal authority or permission affecting 
a railroad operation, or by establishing a route through the use of a

realigning a switch; or
    (ii) To control the occupancy of a track by a roadway worker or 
stationary on-track equipment, or both; or
    (iii) To issue an authority for working limits to a roadway worker.
    (2) The term dispatch does not include the action of personnel in 
the field--
    (i) Effecting implementation of a written or verbal authority or 
permission affecting a railroad operation or an authority or permission 
affecting a railroad operation or an authority for working limits to a

authorizing a train to enter working limits); or
    (ii) Operating a function of a signal system designed for use by 
those personnel.
    Dispatcher means any individual who dispatches.
    Emergency means an unexpected and unforeseeable event or situation 
that affects a railroad's ability to use a dispatcher in the United 
States to dispatch a railroad operation in the United States and that, 
absent the railroad's use of an extraterritorial dispatcher to dispatch 
the railroad operation, would either materially disrupt rail service or 
pose a substantial safety hazard.
    Employee means an individual who is engaged or compensated by a 
railroad or by a contractor to a railroad to perform any of the duties 
defined in this part.
    Extraterritorial dispatcher means a dispatcher who, while located

rail cars within a railroad yard for the purpose of making or breaking 
up trains.
    Occupancy of a track by a roadway worker or stationary on-track 
equipment or both refers to the physical presence of a roadway worker or 
stationary on-track equipment, or both, on a track for the purpose of 
making an inspection, repair, or another activity not associated with 
the movement of a train or other on-track equipment.
    Person means an entity of a type covered under 1 U.S.C. 1, including 
but not limited to the following: a railroad; a manager, supervisor, 
official, or other employee or agent of a railroad; an owner, 
manufacturer, lessor, or lessee of railroad equipment, track, or 
facilities; an independent contractor providing goods or services to a 
railroad; and an employee of such owner, manufacturer, lessor, lessee, 
or independent contractor.
    Railroad means any form of nonhighway ground transportation that 
runs on rails or electromagnetic guideways and any person providing such 
transportation, including--
    (1) Commuter or other short-haul railroad passenger service in a 
metropolitan or suburban area and commuter railroad service that was 
operated by the Consolidated Rail Corporation on January 1, 1979; and
    (2) High speed ground transportation systems that connect

established through ``exclusive track occupancy,'' ``inaccessible 
track,'' ``foul time,'' or ``train coordination'' as defined in part 214 
of this chapter.

Sec. 241.7  Waivers.

    (a) General. (1) A person subject to a requirement of this part may 
petition the Administrator for a waiver of compliance with such

shall also comply with the requirements of paragraph (c) of this 
section.
    (iii) Petitioners not filing under paragraph (c) of this section 
should review the guidelines at 66 FR 63942 (Dec. 11, 2001), and frame 
their petitions to address the safety and security concerns articulated 
in the preamble, or contact the Office of the Chief Counsel, RCC-12, 
FRA, 1120 Vermont Avenue, NW., Stop 10, Washington, DC 20590, for a copy 
of the guidelines.
    (3) If the Administrator finds that a waiver of compliance is in the 
public interest and is consistent with railroad safety, the 
Administrator may grant the waiver subject to any conditions that the 
Administrator deems necessary.
    (b) Special dispensation for existing extraterritorial dispatching. 
(1) A railroad that files a waiver request seeking to continue 
extraterritorial dispatch of an operation that it has dispatched from 
Canada or Mexico pursuant to regulations contained in 49 CFR part 241, 
revised as of October 1, 2002, may continue extraterritorial dispatching 
of that operation until the railroad's waiver request is acted upon by 
FRA if the petition is filed no later than April 11, 2003.
    (2) If the waiver request is for an operation not listed in appendix 
A to this part, the waiver request must describe when the 
extraterritorial dispatching of the operation commenced and how the 
dispatching was authorized by regulations contained in 49 CFR part 241, 
revised as of October 1, 2002. FRA will notify the railroad if FRA 
determines that the operation was not permitted by the terms of those 
regulations.

section meet the safety requirements established by the agency or, in 
the absence of established safety requirements, that the programs are 
satisfactory to the agency.
    (3) Except as otherwise approved by FRA, fringe border dispatching 
must

[[Page 673]]

repeated violations has created an imminent hazard of death or injury to 
persons, or has caused death or injury, a

[[Page 675]]

penalty not to exceed $22,000 per violation may be assessed. Each day a 
violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.
    (b) An individual who violates any requirement of this part or 
causes the violation of any such requirement may be subject to 
disqualification from safety-sensitive service in accordance with part 
209 of this chapter.
    (c) A person who knowingly and willfully falsifies a record or 
report required by this part may be subject to criminal penalties under 
49 U.S.C. 21311.
