    Industry Standards Coordination Committee

    The Industry Standards Coordination Committee (ISCC) is the senior stakeholder group dealing with issues relating to rail industry standards.

    Scope

    ISCC oversees the work of the Standards Committees. It provides direction, advice and guidance on:

    • the management and effectiveness of standards for the mainline railway
    • European standards issues relevant to the mainline railway
    • strategic and legal issues relating to standards.

    ISCC provides advice to the Department for Transport and the Office of Rail and Road on the role of the requirements in Railway Group Standards (RGS) as national technical rules or national safety rules, and the implications of these roles for the management of the mainline railway.

    ISCC's activities are governed by the Railway Group Standards Code and the Standards Manual. Its full scope is set out in its remit.

    Message from the chair

    ISCC supports the industry in overseeing the development of standards. We help users apply standards more effectively, so that the economic and wider benefits of standardisation can be achieved.  We will produce simple training tools to help improve and demonstrate a practitioner’s competence in standards. We support RSSB projects to improve standards.
