Federal Background Check Mandate

  1. Federal Background Check Mandate

    In an effort to continually assess and mitigate security risks, the eRailSafe committee comprising all U.S. Class I Railroads*, have collectively agreed to mandate the U.S. Federal Background Check as part of the security components of the U.S. eRailSafe program. Federal Criminal Background Checks report federal crimes that have crossed state borders and are typically used to supplement County Criminal Record Checks to provide a more comprehensive security assessment of an applicant. The inclusion of the Federal Background Check report to the eRailSafe package will change the application fee to $70.00 per applicant** for those applicants processed through the eRailSafe program effective May 1st, 2014.

    Always, if you have questions about these changes, please contact us at 855-383-7434 or support@e-railsafe.com. We appreciate your company’s partnership and we look forward to supporting your company’s relationship with the Class I Railroads.
