RISSB has published its 2021 / 2022 work plan, which sets out 6 major projects to tackle industry’s toughest challenges, 8 projects to support the National Rail Action Plan that will be delivered over a two year horizon, and 20 publications.
Throughout the financial year, RISSB will be managing the development of a total of 20 publications comprising reviews, resubmissions from previous year’s priority planning process (PPP), AS 1085 series of documents still transitioning from Standards Australia, and projects put forward and endorsed by Standing Committees.
The 6 new major projects will enable RISSB to address key safety vulnerabilities and focus on activities that support our members, while the National Rail Action Plan work is a continuation of collaborative reform projects that RISSB initiated in 2020, and new projects that will over time grow local manufacturing capability.
We’re now also accepting submissions for our 2022/23 work plan. If you have an idea for a new Standard, Code of Practice or Guideline to RISSB. For your idea to be considered, you must complete an updated Product Proposal Form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 22 November 2021.
if you are interested in contributing to the development of any of the current 2021/22 projects, please submit an expression of interest to email@example.com.
