Safe railways for Australia

Notification of change

A notification of change is required when the proposed change is within the scope and nature of a rail transport operator’s (RTO) permitted railway operations, as specified in the Notice of Accreditation. If the proposed change is outside the scope or nature of the accreditation, then the RTO is required to submit a variation of accreditation.

Regulation 9 of the Rail Safety National Law National Regulations 2012 details the types of changes that require a notification of change.

A Notification of Change application can be submitted via the ONRSR Portal. The ONRSR Portal is accessed via the ONRSR Portal link on the ONRSR homepage or from here.

The Portal is now the preferred method to submit Notifications of Change, however they can also be submitted to ONRSR via the Notification of Change form. Eventually the form will be phased out over a period of time.

For all enquiries relating to notifications of change, please contact or phone 08 8406 1500.
