Certification of Entities in Charge of Maintenance in Great Britain

This page summarises the approach to the certification of entities in charge of maintenance in Great Britain. It considers recent changes to European legislation and includes possible scenarios in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

An entity in charge of maintenance (ECM) is defined in the Railways and Other Guided Transport Systems (Safety) Regulations 2006 (as amended) (ROGS). The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) guide to ROGS describes an ECM as ‘any person or organisation that is responsible for the safe maintenance of a vehicle and is registered as an ECM in the national vehicle register. This can include people or organisations such as [railway] undertakings, infrastructure managers, a keeper or a maintenance organisation.’
