Reviewing the regulatory framework for tramway safety

Date published: 14 February 2019
Closing date: 24 March 2019

We have sought the views of tramway dutyholders on ORR’s proposed approach to improving how the safety of Britain’s tramways is regulated and supervised by ORR.

The consultation document provided an outline of our conclusions from a review of the legislative framework for tramway safety, and current thinking on how to strengthen that approach.

This consultation explained and sought the industry’s views on:

  • The consideration ORR has given to each aspect of the framework;
  • The areas where we are not recommending changes, and why; and
  • Our three specific improvement proposals around the use of the Risk Management Maturity Model, the EU Common Safety Method on Risk Assessment and sharing of safety data.
