Call for Public Consultation – Safety Critical Communications Code of Practice

Safety Critical Communications Code of Practice is now available for a 4-week public consultation.

Safety critical communications are communications that, if not delivered, received, and understood correctly, could result in death, serious injury or incur significant damage to property, infrastructure, or the environment.

This Code of Practice (CoP) provides principles and practices for the transmission of safety critical communications on the Australian railway network, including all heavy and light rail operations. Additionally, this CoP provides a reference for common terms and phraseology to promote harmonisation across all heavy and light rail networks.
