Call for Development Group Members – AS 7704 Train Control Systems Change Management

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to develop a new Australian Standard – AS 7704 Train Control Systems Change Management.

Overview
This Standard will cover the operational requirements for changes and documenting operational performance of the system. It will also outline the transition requirements for change management of train control and signalling infrastructure.

The Standard will cover the management of changes to train control systems and signalling. It will provide a framework for managing change that is consistent with AS 7718 – Signal Design Process Management and be scalable to cover minor to significant change. It will also provide guidance for the safety and operational performance of a train control or signalling system affected by change.

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 organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings over the development period – 2 face-to-face (expected in February and April 2019) and 2 teleconferences (December 2018 & July 2019). 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 dmckell@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 Friday, 5 October 2018.
