We have produced a short brief to help the rail industry understand safety design targets in last year’s amendment to The Common Safety Methods for Risk Evaluation and Assessment (CSM RA) regulation.
As part of our work in helping industry make sense of regulation affecting the management of change, we have produced a short brief to help companies get an initial explanation of design targets.
The Common Safety Methods for Risk Evaluation and Assessment (CSM RA) regulation has been amended to introduce the concept of mutually recognised safety design targets for technical systems. This came into force on 3 August 2015.
This means that, under certain circumstances, organisations have the option to use the design targets when proposing the introduction of a new technical system or implementing a change. In some situations the targets are mandatory in order to have the acceptance of a change mutually recognised in other EU member states.
