In 2016 the Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) drafted an Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Management standard to be adopted by the Australian rail industry to ensure that systems introduced on the rail network were electromagnetically compatible with the rail environment.
Nova Systems was engaged to perform a review of the RISSB draft EMC Management standard and provide a validation report with recommendations and evaluation of the proposed draft.
Nova Systems was able to provide resources with the expertise and knowledge of best practice in EMC management of rail systems. The vast majority of recommendations submitted to RISSB were adopted by the RISSB Development Group and the validation report was endorsed and accepted by the RISSB Project Manager.
Nova Systems EMC capability was able deliver the review in a timely manner that was able to recommend enhancements that were in line with world best practice and provided a more holistic overview that covered aspects that were omissions in the original draft.
