Call for Development Group Members – AS 7474 Rail industry – System safety assurance

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a RISSB Development Group to draft AS 7474 Rail industry  – System safety assurance.

 Overview
A Guideline for system safety assurance was finalised last year, and it is intended that this Standard will work hand in glove with the Guideline.  It will assist the Australian rail industry to more efficiently and effectively demonstrate that they have completed due diligence in assessing safety in major projects and during change events. 

It is intended to provide a scalable set of requirements to assist designers, manufacturers, transport operators and rail infrastructure managers in the demonstration of compliance to prevailing rail safety legislation.

How to contribute
Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the Standard.

DG membership is voluntary and requires the support of your employer organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings over the development period, 2 teleconferences and 2 face-to-face meetings, indicatively in September 2019, December 2019, February 2020 and April 2020.

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 cscott@rissb.com.au.

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, your interest in this 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 Monday, 2 September 2019.
