Detail

Under s.71B of the Railways Act 1993 the Secretary of State maintains a code of practice to protect the interests of disabled people travelling by rail. All passenger train station operators are encouraged to use the document, and those who are licensed must follow its standards.

Version 3 of the code of practice, valid from November 2011, replaces all previous versions. It provides standards and guidance for accessibility at railway stations, updated to more accurately reflect the BS8300 changes in 2009, and should be used by all train and station operators whenever they carry out works on their facilities.

Version 1 of the code of practice, published in July 2008, replaced the version published by the Strategic Rail Authority, and incorporated a clearer structure, more-up-to-date guidance, and standards mirroring new European rules.
