Variation of registration


Registered rail infrastructure managers proposing change to their operations, or the conditions or restrictions of their registration, may be required to submit a variation to their registration pursuant to section 87 of the Rail Safety National Law (RSNL).

A rail infrastructure manager (RIM) must apply for a variation to their registration if they:

  • propose to vary the scale and complexity of the private siding/s in respect of which the applicant is registered; or
  • propose to vary the railway operations to be carried out in the private siding/s in respect of which the applicant is registered; or
  • propose any other changes, in relation to the private siding/s that should be reflected in the registration.

To apply for a variation of registration to a private siding as a RIM you must submit an Application for Variation of Registration Form.

This form should be submitted to the ONRSR with attached supporting documentation where required.

For all enquiries relating to the registration of private sidings, please contact operations@onrsr.com.au or phone 08 8406 1500.
