This standard applies to the asset management of all EP assets. Certain clauses also apply to the introduction of new EP assets to the rail network.

• Meet and maintain statutory obligations,
• Optimise the life and performance of assets and the network,
• Maintain quality of service by minimising disruption to customers.
This standard contains the specific requirements that enable the objectives set out above to be met. Prior to issue of this standard, the requirements were set out in
