require this registration if you intend to become a rail infrastructure manager
of a private siding.
A siding is a
portion of railway track that branches away from the main rail infrastructure. A
private siding is defined as a siding that is owned, controlled or managed by a
person other than the person who manages the adjoining rail infrastructure.
sidings do not include:
- marshalling yards
- crossing loops
- passenger or freight terminals
- sidings under the management of an
accredited rail infrastructure manager
- any siding designated as a non-private
siding by the national regulations.
You are not
required to be accredited as a manager of a private siding.
You must be
able to provide the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator detailed
information about the location and nature of your private siding.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
