Message from the chair
CCS SC enables industry to develop standards. Our current focus is on lineside and platform stop car signage, and revised application requirements for Automatic Warning System and Train Protection Warning System. We want to help users apply standards more effectively, so that the economic and wider benefits of standardisation are achieved. This includes requirements, rationale, and guidance developed through trials, case studies and critical reviews.
