Call for Development Group Members – Code of Practice KPIs for Corridor Infrastructure Maintenance – New Product

The closing date for nominations – Thursday 29 February 2024

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from industry representatives and subject matter experts to develop a new Code of Practice – KPIs for Corridor Infrastructure Maintenance.

How will this product help the rail industry? 

This new product seeks to support harmonisation of infrastructure maintenance requirements. Your contribution to the development of this new code will help drive greater productivity and safety outcomes for the Australian and New Zealand Rail Industry.


The addition of this new product to the RISSB’s catalogue will create a framework for Rail Infrastructure Managers and maintainers. It defines a standardised set of performance measures for the maintenance of below rail infrastructure to be measured and monitored.

The development of these KPI’s will form part of an overall sustainable asset management strategy that will continually assess technical, economic, safety and productivity measures of railway infrastructure.

Time commitment 

Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be a minimum of six meetings held between March 2024 and December 2024. Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB Website.

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 product.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted via email to Carly Wilson, Standards Development Manager at cwilson@rissb.com.au.

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief including your contact details, position title, your interest in this development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which further supports your participation. This information will assist us in ensuring balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this document.

The closing date for nominations is Thursday 29 February 2024.
