Call for Development Group Members – 2 Rolling Stock Products

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join RISSB Development Groups in the review of two rolling stock products:

AS 7533 Australian Railway Rolling Stock – Driving Cabs
This Standard describes requirements for the design of driving cabs for rolling stock, with the main purpose of providing a safe and operable driving cab.

AS 7519 Australian Railway Rolling Stock – Bogie Structural Requirements
This Standard describes requirements for the structural strength of bogie structures and attached equipment. The main purpose is to maintain the structural integrity of bogie structures and / or attached equipment under normal operation and to minimise the risks to train crew and / or members of the general public in the event of collisions or derailments.

How to Contribute
Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join these Development Groups to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the products.

Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your employer organisation to attend and contribute. Although it is difficult to quantify the exact level of effort required to review each of the products, it is anticipated that there will be 4 meetings over the development period (2 x face-to-face & 2 x teleconferences) over the next 12 or so months.

Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted to iroutcliffe@rissb.com.au.

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, the Development Group(s) you wish to participate in, your interest in the development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which might support your participation.

Your information will assist us in ensuring a balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this document.

Closing date for nominations Friday, 25 October 2019
