Safe railways for Australia

New registration

A Rail Infrastructure Manager (RIM) of a private siding must apply to the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR) for registration in respect of the private siding. The Rail Safety National Law (RSNL) requires the registration of a private siding to be, or continue to be connected with, or have access to, a railway of an accredited person or another siding.

The RIM of a private siding is to be the party registered as set out by RSNL. Accredited rail infrastructure managers cannot also be registered as a manager of a private siding, however will rather form part of the scope of their accreditation.

To apply for registration of a private siding as a RIM you must submit an Application for Registration Form. This form should be submitted to the ONRSR with attached supporting documentation where required.

For all enquiries relating to the registration of private sidings, please contact or phone 08 8406 1500.
