Organization: NR
Publication Date: 6 March 2021

Page Count: 53
scope:

This standard applies to the following key areas:

a) key engineering roles including accountabilities and responsibilities;

b) relationship and links to key standards and legislation;

c) engineering interface management arrangements;

d) appointment processes for key engineering roles;

e) engineering and construction management plans;

f) managing non-compliances to standards;

g) technical approval and technical acceptance processes;

h) production of engineering compliance certificates;

i) competence assessment requirements; and

j) management and review of engineering deliverables.

It applies to all organisation's working on projects; including Network Rail Alliances, Joint Ventures and Capital Delivery and maintenance teams responsible for the design, delivery and assurance of the engineering requirements of Projects, Programmes and Portfolios impacting Network Rail infrastructure, that:

• change, renew, enhance or remove the operational railway;

• are defined in NR/L1/CIV/094 as Third Party works, unless an agreed and documented arrangement is in place with Network Rail;

• are defined in NR/L1/CIV/094 as Outside Party works that require incidental changes to the Network Rail Infrastructure, unless an agreed and documented arrangement is in place with Network Rail.

NOTE: More information on Project, Programme and Portfolio Management can be found in NR/L1/INI/P3M/100 and relevant level 2 supporting standards NR/L2/INI/P3M/101 and  NR/L2/INI/P3M/102.

Exclusions

The requirements contained in this standard do not apply:

a) where the work is managed and undertaken by a Network Rail Region/Route and the complexity and scale of the work are covered entirely under the controls in NR/L3/MTC/RCS0216 - Risk Control Manual;

b) to Outside Party work where there is no potential to impact Network Rail infrastructure or operations; or

c) early stage development of a Programme, specified in NR/L2/INI/P3M/102 as stage A, Concept Development.

Purpose

This standard aligns engineering management practices with elements of legislative instruments, including the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, Common Safety Method for Risk Evaluation and Assessment Regulation (EU) and The Railways (Interoperability) Regulations 2011, where work is undertaken on the Network Rail Infrastructure.

The benefit of the standard, is that it provides clear and consistent engineering management requirements for specific:

• accountabilities and responsibilities;

• competence requirements; and

• processes

It provides a framework of processes and requirements that are appropriate for the scope and complexity of the project, programme or portfolio being managed.

Adherence to this standard will help increase the successful delivery of Network Rail's Project Portfolio and reduce associated reputational, financial and safety risks.
