- Annual safety reports
Mainline transport operators annual safety reports
Under Regulation 20 of the Railways and Other Guided Transport Systems (Safety) Regulations 2006 (ROGS), mainline transport operators who are required to have a safety certificate or safety authorisation must prepare an annual safety report (ASR) relating to the previous calendar year and send it to the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) by 30 June of the following year. We have set up a dedicated email account, firstname.lastname@example.org specifically for this purpose.
We have worked closely with dutyholders and RSSB to establish a process, resulting in the production of updated guidance for mainline operators ( PDF 190 Kb) and a standard template which dutyholders are encouraged to use for their reports relating to the 2012 calendar year.
The common safety method (CSM) for risk evaluation and assessment requires mainline transport operators to report briefly on their experience with the application of the CSM. The report must also include details of the decisions related to the level of significance of the changes.
The CSM for monitoring (Commission Regulation 1078/2012) applies from 7 June 2013. It requires mainline transport operators to report briefly on their experience with the application of the CSM. Entities in charge of maintenance (ECMs) for freight wagons must also report in their annual maintenance report their experience of applying the CSM for monitoring.
