Call for Development Group Members – Guideline Security Handbook Volumes 1 & 2

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a RISSB Development Group to draft a Guideline update of the 2009 Security Handbook Volumes 1 & 2.

Overview
The objective of the exercise is to review the 2009 Security Handbook Volumes 1 & 2 for suitability in the current environment. Due consideration will be given to developments that have taken place since it was first published including perceived risks, changes in technologies and methodologies, and their influence on effective management.

The publication will provide guidance to rail organisations on effective security risk management and implementation strategies for their rail operations and how to comply with regulatory objectives.

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.

DG 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 face-to-face, expected in June and August, and 2 teleconference sessions anticipated for April and July.

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 ngoodey@rissb.com.au.
