The ONRSR Way: Regulating rail safety across Australia

28 February 2018

The ONRSR Way ONRSR has released The ONRSR Way, a new publication offering regulated parties and rail safety stakeholders clarity around how ONRSR does business.

The ONRSR Way explains what type of regulator we are and how we operate. It details our risk-based approach to regulation and outlines what operators can expect from our regulatory activities. It also covers how we intend to drive continuous improvement in everything we do.

Importantly, The ONRSR Way replaces the following documents, which are being withdrawn from the ONRSR website:

  • Compliance and Enforcement Policy in its current form
  • Accreditation Policy
  • Exemptions from the Rail Safety National Law Policy
  • National Rail Safety Register Policy
  • Effective Control and Management of Railway Operations Guideline

All operators are encouraged to download The ONRSR Way or email to request a printed copy.
