Who we work with
We work alongside rail infrastructure companies, the Westminster, Scottish and Welsh governments, other safety bodies and companies in the railway industry.
We also work closely with expert panels and other bodies both in the UK and in Europe to ensure our regulatory approach is built on expertise, cutting-edge thinking and best practice.

The rail infrastructure in Britain is complex and comprises of a number of different bodies. Not only do we regulate the mainline rail, we are also the health and safety regulator for a number of other forms of transport that run on rail.
