RSC Annual Report 2010



In accordance with Section 28(3) of the Railway Safety Act 2005, the Railway Safety Commission (RSC) is required to present an annual report to the Minister for Transport. This is the annual report for 2010 and, in addition to providing information on RSC activities, administration and governance; it presents statistical data on the safety performance of the various participants in the railway sector in Ireland during the year under review.

The RSC continues to participate with National Safety Authorities of the other Member States of the European Union in the on- going development of the European railway safety regulatory framework. This results in considerable work for the RSC in relation to the harmonisation of national legislation and implementation of EU common safety methods.
