Call for Development Group Members – AS 7640 Rail Management

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a RISSB Development Group to review AS 7640 Rail Management.


This Standard covers management of both new, existing and serviceable rails. This review of the Standard is to ensure that it represents good practice, continues to reflect the needs of our stakeholders, and refines its interface with the AS 1085 Railway track materials series.

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.

Development Group 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 October 2019, January 2020, March 2020 and May 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 rrobertson@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 Tuesday, 24 September 2019.
