RAIL SAFETY LAW UNDER REVIEW

The National Transport Commission (NTC) is conducting a review of the Rail Safety National Law (RSNL), with review recommendations and the final report expected by mid-2024.

The review aims to examine the efficiency and flexibility of the RSNL Act of 2012 in supporting safety aspects of broader rail industry reforms in the current context.

Agreed upon at a meeting of Infrastructure and Transport Ministers on June 9, the review will focus on aspects such as administering the RSNL, transparency, interaction with work health and safety legislation, co-regulation, roles and responsibilities, and flexibility to accommodate future technological innovations.
