The Department for Transport (DfT) has commissioned the ORR to undertake a stakeholder survey about the impact and effectiveness of the Railways and Other Guided Transport Systems (Safety) Regulations 2006 (ROGS).
This section contains decisions we have made since 2019. For older decisions, please see our decisions library. All approved agreements and subsequently approved amendments to track access decisions are held on our public register.
We are seeking views on our proposed revision of ORR guidance on application of the Railway Safety Regulations 1999 (RSR 99) to Mark 1 type and hinged door rolling stock when operated on railway infrastructure where line speed exceeds 40kph.
Signalling systems are an essential part of the railway. They keep passengers safe by ensuring trains do not come into conflict with each other and play a key role in freeing up capacity on our congested network.
For holders of EU passenger licences we updated their GB Statement of National Regulatory Provisions (SNRP) as well as their station licences on 3 December 2019. On 24 June 2020 we also updated those operators who just hold station licences too. For operators who provide traction only services, we have as yet not modified their SNRPs.
Consultation to revise the Accessible Travel Policy (ATP) Guidance. This aims to improve the availability of accessible vehicles for use by disabled passengers during rail disruption, and to ensure passengers know where accessible buses and coaches will be operated.
We have asked that Network Rail, train and station operators, work together under the governance structure of the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) Board to publish a Passenger Information Improvement Plan and revise it and re-issue it annually.
