RISSB to Play a Major Role in National Rail Action Plan
RISSB’s CEO Deb Spring attended a high level meeting involving the NTC, ONRSR and the ARA to discuss the National Rail Action Plan (NRAP). RISSB is excited to be able to contribute to the NRAP through its focus on Standards and interoperability. RISSB is very active in this space and looks forward to co-hosting as well as being a key participant in working groups to be established to take the NRAP forward.
The industry SPAD Group agreed on a national categorisation (A1 – A4 and B1-B4, based largely on the UK model) of SPADs in 2018 and this was adopted by ONRSR for reporting SPADs to the regulator in mid-2019. ONRSR has indicated RTOs are using the categorisation, but that further guidance material would be helpful. The SPAD Group and RISSB has commenced working with ONRSR on further guidance information for industry

The Development Group attended another meeting this week to complete the review of this existing Standard. With a few minor changes made it was agreed that this Standard is ready to progress to public consultation.
Expect to see this issued externally for public comment within the next fortnight.
This Development Group has been working hard on reviewing this Standard over the past month. The current fully revised draft is being considered, with the aim to have it available for public consultation by the end of the month.
