NTSB Extends Comment Period on Investigation Procedures Rule

Oct. 31 is now the deadline.

The National Transportation Safety Board is giving stakeholders more time, until Oct. 31, to comment on its Aug. 12, 2014, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to amend its regulations governing its investigation procedures. To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov and search for Docket ID Number NTSB-GC-2012-0002).

Representatives from other federal agencies responded to the NPRM by asking for more time to submit comments.

The changes are mainly technical, but NTSB has proposed to reorganize 49 CFR part 831 because it currently contains some sections that apply only to aviation investigations and other sections that apply to investigations of transportation events that occur in the surface, rail, marine, and pipeline modes or involve the hazmat transportation. "By including terms such as 'crash,' 'transportation event,' 'collision,' 'casualty,' 'mishap,' and the like in lieu of the term 'accident' in some places in the preamble's description of this part, and in some proposed sections of regulatory text, the NTSB provides additional descriptive terms of transportation events that it investigates in order to improve transportation safety. The NTSB proposes including other terms in the mode-specific subparts, as appropriate," according to the NPRM.

NTSB has identified part 831 as the only regulatory part of its regulations that could have a significant economic impact on small entities.
