The ONRSR Portal requires a unique user ID and password for each user.
The Key Contact person (as nominated to ONRSR as required by Regulation 8(b) of the Rail Safety National Law National Regulations 2012) for each accredited rail transport operator has been established as a user of the ONRSR Portal. Once the ONRSR Portal is available to an organisation, the Key Contact will be sent an email containing their user ID (email address), initial password and basic instructions on how to access the ONRSR Portal.
The Key Contact can initiate the creation of additional users as required by their organisation.
During the pilot phase the ONRSR Portal is accessed at https://portal.onrsr.com.au.
Effort has been made to design the ONRSR Portal to be intuitive and easy to use, including having a range of online help and guidance to assist with its use. However, if you have difficulties in using the ONRSR Portal assistance is available.

Organisations involved in using the ONRSR Portal during the phase 1 pilot period will be contacted to provide formal feedback on the ONRSR Portal’s usability and functionality. Participating organisations are encouraged to provide open and honest feedback as this will be valuable to ONRSR for the ongoing development of the ONRSR Portal.
Feedback can also be provided at any time during the Pilot period by contacting Andreas Kornusch.
The ONRSR Portal enables partial completion of information to be saved. Saving information is not considered to be submission of this information. Information will be taken to have been submitted to ONRSR once the user has clicked submit and the ONRSR Portal has indicated that the submission was successful (i.e. the ONRSR Portal has not prompted for any missing or incorrect information).
Current forms that are used for the submission of notifiable occurrences and monthly returns remain available and can be used should the ONRSR Portal not be accessible.
