Consultation on updating ORR's guidance on access to service facilities

Consultation outcome

On 24 May 2019 we consulted on proposed updated guidance, reflecting the European Commission’s Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2177 of 22 November 2017 on access to service facilities and rail-related services (stations, light maintenance depots, freight terminals and other sites and associated services). We have now set out our conclusions, with a reminder to service facility owners about the need to produce Service Facility Descriptions. Our conclusions letter also explains the changes we have made to reflect The Railways (Access, Management and Licensing of Railway Undertakings) (Amendment) Regulations 2019.

We are asking for views on our revised guidance on access to rail service facilities (stations, light maintenance depots, freight terminals and other sites).

The European Commission’s Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2177 of 22 November 2017 on access to service facilities and rail-related services, will come into force on 1 June 2019. The Office of Rail and Road is updating its guidance modules to reflect this legislation.

We are updating our guidance for Northern Ireland Railways separately.
