This consultation outlines options around how the Office of Rail Regulation’s (ORR) policies and processes could be improved; enabling flexibility in taking effective licence enforcement. ORR is very keen to hear the views of all of its stakeholders as part of this policy review.
ORR’s economic enforcement policy and penalties statement explains their policy for enforcing licences (Network Rail and industry operators). It sets out what powers they have to enforce the licence. It also sets out the remedies available if licence holders are not compliant and how they decide whether and when to use them.
