scope:

A Third Party is an organization other than Network Rail intending to undertake works which will physically change or impact the operation, assets, design or other functionality of Network Rail's infrastructure. The application of this business process is project specific, as agreed between the Head of Asset Protection and Sponsorship.

This business process sets out requirements for the application of Asset Protection controls to be established when Third Parties wish to specify, manage and/or deliver projects on Network Rail's Managed (or leased) Infrastructure.

This business process sets out Network Rail's accountabilities and responsibilities to discharge its duties as Infrastructure Manager.

It applies to Third Party works being undertaken where Network Rail is not the sole client, including the Asset Protection assurance of works being undertaken by a Third Party, to assets that will be taken over by Network Rail for operation and/or maintenance.

This business process supports NR/L1/CIV/094; National Asset Protection and Optimization (ASPRO) Delivery Framework.

This business process is to be read in conjunction with NR/L2/OHS/0047; Application of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations to Network Rail Construction Projects.

Access to the Network, is governed by this business process, but all parties have a positive obligation to work with each other in a timely manner, prioritizing safety and placing passenger needs first.

This business process does not replace the Landlord Consent Process or Stations and/or Depot Change processes (see Station Access Conditions and Depot Access Conditions). It does not replace the requirements stated within the lease, letting conditions, and Access Conditions, to safely manage or authorize construction within the station or depot lease area.

This business process does not apply to Outside Party works.

NOTE: See NR/L2/OHS/005.

Purpose

The purpose of this business process is to support in the mitigation of potential risks imported to the Network Rail infrastructure by Third Party organisations when working on, near, over or under the infrastructure through the application of Asset Protection and Optimization (ASPRO) controls.

Potential risks can be imported to the railway infrastructure from a multitude of Third Party works including:

  • building a new station;
  • building new bridges;
  • works within the designated precautionary area of level crossings.
