Call for Development Group Members – Code of Practice for Driver Only Operations

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to develop a Code of Practice for Driver Only Operations.


This Code of Practice will provide operators and infrastructure maintainers with a common practice approach for the development, implementation, and sustainability of safe driver only operations within the Australian Rail Network. It will include rolling stock requirements for trains intended to be operated with driver only operation, as well as provide guidance on the development of the safety and engineering cases required for Regulatory approval.

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. Attendance can be via teleconferencing, with attendance at around five (5) meetings over the development period. 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 ahardiman@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 13 April 2018.
