ORR’s review of Light Rail Safety and Standards Board

Body
Components

We have published the terms of reference for a review to assess that the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board (LRSSB) is on track with enabling the delivery of the relevant Rail Accident Investigation Branch’s (RAIB) Sandilands recommendations within the sector and to help set it on a firm footing as it evolves. 

As the safety regulator and enforcing authority for light railways and tramways and custodian of recommendation 1 of the RAIB Sandilands recommendations, ORR has been monitoring LRSSB, the dedicated safety body for the sector since it was established in 2019. 

In this context, we will be conducting a review to assess LRSSB is on track with enabling the delivery of the relevant RAIB Sandilands recommendations within the sector and to help set it on firm footing as it evolves. 

The current LRSSB Directors also invited ORR to conduct an independent review of the LRSSB in order to give them feedback and independent insight in a number of areas which they outlined in their letter.
