RISSB Interoperability Roadshow - 3 to 17 July 2012
The Rail Industry Safety & Standards Board (RISSB) will be hosting a series of Interoperability Roadshows around the country in July to seek industry input into the need for greater cooperation on standards across jurisdictional boundaries.
The rail industry is divided into many segments; for example there are currently 12 organisations responsible for track management. This has led to duplication of practices and procedures that are in many cases acting in isolation.
The Rail Industry Safety & Standards Board (RISSB) has been tasked to complete a set of national Interoperability Standards for the Australian railway industry.
The scope of the Interoperability Roadshow is to inform the rail industry about the development of the draft interoperability standard and to present interoperability case studies and experience to the industry.
It will be a good opportunity for rail industry stakeholders to find out why the future of our interoperability standard is vital for the industry.
RISSB will commence an industry-wide consultation for the Interoperability Standard after the Roadshow, and we would like you to comment on this draft Standard.
