Management of Change

When a significant change is made to the railway environment, that change must be well managed. Those responsible for railway safety are required to consider and control the risks to passengers, the public and the workforce that might arise from changes. The regulations governing the management of change on the GB mainline railway system are set out in the Management of change webpage.
