Network Rail Assurance Panel Processes: Network Rail Assurance Panel
|Publication Date:||5 December 2015|
This module specifies NRAP's accountabilities and the processes it follows in order to fulfil them.
It applies to anyone making an application:
a) to introduce new or changed vehicles on Network Rail Infrastructure, or change where they operate (as defined by the authorised routes); or
b) that could affect the compatibility between vehicles and Network Rail infrastructure; or
c) that is a change to Network Rail infrastructure; or the way it is operated
NOTE The scope of NRAP does not normally include maintenance of equipment, or equipment replaced due to failure. This applies if approved equipment in pre-existing applications is used, that no designs are produced and the configuration of NR infrastructure is unchanged.
d) to introduce new or changed products as part of Network Rail Infrastructure. This applies even if the application will not be controlled or carried out by Network Rail.
Network Rail Assurance Panel (NRAP) governs a number of Network Rail processes on behalf of Network Rail's Executive through the STE Business Performance Management Group (STE BPMG).
These processes help Network Rail comply with its statutory responsibilities and Health and Safety Management System when a change is introduced that could change the risk profile of Network Rail Infrastructure.
This module sets out how NRAP carries out these responsibilities and delegates authority to bodies and individuals within Network Rail.
The module helps applicants to identify the correct process for their proposal. NRAP governs a number of processes that provide appropriate review prior to projects, products and vehicles being brought into service.
