RIS-1530-PLT Iss 7
On-Track Plant, Trolleys and Associated Equipment
Summary Of Changes
RIS-1530-PLT Issue 6: Rail Industry Standard for Technical Requirements for On-Track Plant and their Associated Equipment and Trolleys was published in December 2015. Since then, work has continued with European standardisation in this area; many of the requirements in the European Standards (EN) are based on those in this RIS.
The legislative regime in Great Britain has changed since leaving the European Union, and the RIS is widely supported in the industry because of the guidance it offers in meeting the EN requirements.
The RIS has therefore been updated to refer to the latest legislative regime (including clarification on UKCA and CE marking), and to the latest issues of the ENs. The rationale has been provided along with updated guidance, and there is added clarity regarding the preference for a direct line of sight in the direction of travel of road-rail vehicles, with prioritised alternatives (assistant, CCTV or ground staff).
