This document covers machines fitted with rail wheels that are used for the construction, maintenance, inspection, repair and renewal of railway infrastructure. It is also applicable to machines used for emergency rescue purposes on railway infrastructure.
NOTE Inspection of the infrastructure includes measurement.
This document explains the different modes of operation, classification of machines and which standard covers the technical requirements. There is also guidance on the compliance process provided to explain the design review process of different legislation, how these can be combined into one process (to avoid duplication) and achieve a common understanding of what the design review is achieving.
