Paper presented at the 26th Annual Southern African Transport Conference 9 - 12 July 2007 "The challenges of implementing policy?", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa. ABSTRACT:The National Railway Safety Regulator Act, 2002 was developed to create the Railway Safety
Regulator to oversee the safety of railway operations. In the intervening years since its
promulgation the need has been identified for the Railway Safety Regulator to be informed
and involved throughout the life cycle of the operation, and in particular in the phases of
design, construction and commissioning. This paper addresses the need for regulations
covering these aspects and the advantages to both Permit Holders (Operators) and the
Railway Safety Regulator.
