The Department for Transport is seeking feedback on an application from London Underground Limited for exemption from the Rail Vehicle Accessibility Regulations (RVAR) 2010. The exemption concerns audio visual announcements on S7 and S8 rail vehicles.
Background to RVAR exemption applications
Applications for exemption from the standards mandated by the RVAR received by the Department for Transport are subject to stakeholder and public consultation. Rail vehicles (trains) which must comply with these standards include light rail, metros and trams. RVAR is directly applicable to all new vehicles built after 1 January 1999. Vehicles built before 1999 have until 1 January 2020 to comply.
