Last week RISSB attended the 2023 AusRAIL Plus conference held at the ICC in Sydney.
From the presentations and exhibitions, to the networking events and gala dinners, we have really enjoyed this year's conference. Congratulations to the Australasian Railway Association (ARA) on holding another outstanding event.
This year’s event provided the invaluable opportunity for us to talk to key members of the industry about our safety, training and systems products. A big thank you to the people who stopped by our exhibition stand to ask questions, get guidance or just connect in-person, we're looking forward to continuing the harmonisation and interoperability conversations in the future.

PEOPLE SPOTLIGHT ON... RISSB's key contributors over the last 20 years
This year, RISSB is celebrating it's 20th year Anniversary! Our organisation was established in June 2003 as the 'Code Management Company', then from 2007 onwards, we were formally known as the Rail Industry Safety Standards Board (RISSB).
For the last 20 years, RISSB has been supported by, and worked with, some incredible people that have contributed greatly to our business. For the next few months, we will be recognising some of RISSB's key contributors, as they share their experiences working with RISSB.
Name - Mark Carling
Role - RISSB Industry Director, Suppliers & Contractors
"I've been working in rail for over 20 years, and fortunate to serve on the RISSB Board twice, and I've always felt that RISSB is at the heart of the rail industry in Australia. RISSB's role in helping industry to navigate the challenges of operating in such a complex environment is a vitally important one."
