You will require this accreditation if you intend to operate, construct, maintain, repair or alter rolling stock in Victoria. Rolling stock is a vehicle that operates on or uses a railway track, such as:
- rail cars
- rail motors
- light rail vehicles
- monorail vehicles.
It does not include vehicles designed to operate both on and off a railway track.
This accreditation only applies to light railway rolling stock and trams. All heavy rail is covered by the National Law. The purpose of this accreditation is to ensure you are competent and capable of providing safe, effective and efficient services, and are capable of acting in accordance with any appropriate standards as required by the Agency.
A rolling stock operator is a person who is entitled to operate rolling stock on a railway. They may also be the RIM of that particular infrastructure, because they have an agreement that allows them to operate stock on that railway, or because they are allowed to operate on the railway for certain other reasons.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
