Call for Development Group Members – Infrastructure Track Stability Code of Practice

RISSB Code of Practice for Infrastructure Track Stability

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board is seeking nominations from people to join a joint RISSB/ASA Development Group to draft the Code of Practice (CoP) for Infrastructure Track Stability.


This product will provide a supporting document to the RISSB Track Stability Standard.

The Track Stability Standard describes the requirements for managing the stability of tracks within Australia. The Standard addresses the key hazards of collisions and derailments. The Code will examine ways in which to achieve the Standard.

How to Contribute

Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join the Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the document.

Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your employer organisation to attend and contribute. Attendance can be via teleconference, with attendance at around a max of 4 meetings per year over the development of the Standard.

Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website. Development Group documentation will also be sent out to all nominees.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted by emailing Laurie Wilson via lwilson@rissb.com.au.

Closing date for nominations 31 March 2016.
