The objective of this standard is to provide a common type approval process nationally for the benefit of RTOs, suppliers, designers and manufacturers.
It provides a process for evaluating new or modified railway products that are intended to be applied throughout the railway industry supply chain. It also supports a consistent approach for the harmonization and the management of new and modified railway products.
The standard provides information about mutual recognition (Product Information Pack and Product Approval Pack) but does not cover the Product Selection Process.
