This Guideline offers Rail Transport Operators and their contractors controls which, when implemented, may assist to reduce risks when operating RRVs.

This guideline has been developed for all those who use or have responsibility for, either directly or through contracting arrangements, the operation of Road Rail Vehicles (RRVs). It applies to all vehicle types in use in the Australasian rail industry.
