Arrangements for the Exchange of Asset Data and the Continuing Maintenance of Assets Undergoing Change
|Publication Date:||1 December 2018|
This standard applies to all project works that either temporarily or permanently renew, replace, alter, decommission, remove existing assets or provide new assets on Network Rail infrastructure. This does not apply where the project work is to be undertaken by the Maintainer of those assets.
It also applies to those project works that have the capacity to affect assets that are adjacent to, but not the subject of, the project works.
It does not apply to the transfer of responsibilities on the expiry of a contract for maintenance.
This document provides a process for introducing new assets or affecting existing assets on Network Rail infrastructure through the development and implementation of an asset management plan (AMP), which defines:
a) the responsibilities for the various elements of inspection and maintenance before, during and after project works;
b) the relationships and the exchanges of information between the Maintainer, Asset Owner and the Project Manager; and
c) the required AMP deliverables in support of project works.
a) the arrangements for the management of assets undergoing change;
b) assurance of the continued safe and effective maintenance of all assets throughout the project lifecycle; and
c) Network Rail in discharging its duties under the Construction, Design and Management Regulations, in accordance with NR/L2/OHS/0047, through the provision of pre-construction information.
