Call for Development Group Members – Achieving Compliance At Railway Stations With DSAPT Guideline

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to create a new Guideline titled: Achieving Compliance At Railway Stations With DSAPT (Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport).

This Guideline will provide guidance to the Australian rail industry on how to apply DSAPT requirements to rail premises and rail infrastructure.

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 Guideline.  Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings held between March 2021 and September 2021. These will be planned as teleconferences; however, this may change depending on lifting of travel restrictions.

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 sniles@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.

The closing date for nominations is Friday, 26 February 2021.
