Management of Change

Organisations with responsibilities for safety on the GB mainline railway system are required to consider and control the risk to passengers, the public and the workforce from changes being introduced. Change to the risk to these groups can arise from technical (engineering), operational, or organisational changes.

The three principal railway-specific regulations governing the management of change on the GB mainline railway system are listed below.  However there are other, general regulations that are applicable (for example, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015).  These regulations and other regulations relating to the legislative framework for the GB mainline railway system can be found on the webpage 'Complying with Legislation'.
