Reply: We intend to work closely with the National Rail System Standard (NRSS) Executive with an aim to implementing and closing out this recommendation as soon as practicable. The NZ Transport Agency sits of the NRSS Executive as an observer. We will also consider a strategy for rail operators outside the NRSS coverage.

Safety Recommendation 035/10
Issued To MoT on 19 Aug 10
the National Rail System Standard has not been fully reviewed since they were established in 2004. Once the status of the standards and its Committee has been established then an independent review of the standards should be conducted to determine if they are still applicable to the New Zealand rail industry, and to ensure if they are representative of standards set in other comparative countries operating modern rail systems.
