Public consultation page for RVAR exemption applications.

This consultation closes at: 11pm on 31 October 2019

Consultation description

Consultation containing an application from Strathclyde Partnership for Transport for exemption from minimum accessibility standards in RVAR 2010.

The exemption would apply to existing trains on the network and would be valid until all had been replaced by new rolling stock.

The Rail Vehicle Accessibility (Non-Interoperable Rail System) Regulations 2010 set standards for the accessibility features of a rail vehicle operated on particular types of rail systems. The Secretary of State has powers under section 183 of the Equality Act 2010 to allow operators of regulated rail vehicles to continue to operate a vehicle if it does not fully comply with the standards set in the schedules to these RVAR 2010.
