Submit Your Idea For A New Publication
We work to develop and deliver a suite of products and services which benefit our members and the wider rail community. We rely on industry to help us determine what we should be focusing our efforts on.
This week, we formally kicked off our priority planning process inviting stakeholders to submit ideas for new Standards, Codes of Practice or Guidelines that RISSB could develop in 2022 / 23.
In case you missed the announcement, this is a reminder that for ideas to be considered for next year's work plan, you will need to complete an updated Product Proposal Formand send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Monday, 22 November 2021.
Each submission must be completed in full and will need to cover:
* Expected impact in supporting interoperability / harmonisation across Australia’s railways
* Potential to improve national safety levels
* Likely financial impacts (e.g. cost reductions)
* Environmental benefits.
RISSB offers dozens of webinars each year on a range of topics related to safety, risk management, leadership, major rail projects, the application of new technologies and more. Whether you are a veteran
presenter for RISSB or new to rail, if your work is connected to the Australian railway, we want to hear from you!
We are offering an exciting opportunity for industry experts to share their knowledge and experience and make a contribution to ongoing discussions about rail safety, harmonisation, interoperability, and innovation by becoming a MasterClass webinar presenter.
If you have a topic in mind and believe the subject has broad appeal, is newsworthy, and is not a sales opportunity, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject line 2022 MasterClass Webinar Proposal and a few paragraphs telling us
about yourself and what you would like to talk about by COB Friday, 5 November 2021.

Industry Bodies Join Forces On Train Visibility Project
RISSB, ARA, FORG, ONRSR and TrackSAFE are co-sponsoring a research project on train visibility being delivered by the Australasian Centre for Rail Innovation.
Looking locally and internationally, this research project will seek to identify further opportunities to improve safety at road / rail level crossings.
IRSC 2021 Concludes With Declaration
The 31st IRSC Conference held in the Republic of Korea this week was very successful, with a huge array of topics and international speakers including RISSB’s Jesse Baker who presented on the topic Australia’s Rail Industry Poised for a Boom - Are We Ready? on Day 3.
At the closing ceremony on Thursday, RISSB and the rest of the IRSC's Core Group members read a declaration of commitment to enhancing railway safety. The declaration recognises that railway safety protects the property and lives of people and contributes significantly to the development of regions and national territories, and encourages shared prosperity.
RISSB Presents at UIC Asia Pacific Workshop On Standardisation
Also on Thursday, RISSB's General Manager Product Delivery Mike Aviet and Accreditation Manager Neal Peters delivered a presentation on RISSB's role harmonising the Australia railway at the International Union of
Railways' Asia Pacific Workshop on Standardisation.
Representatives from Australia, Europe, Japan, Malaysia, Russia and Kazakhstan, heard about the legacy of Australia's railways, RISSB's product catalogue and how RISSB is encouraging interoperability and harmonisation regionally through its work plan.
