Railways and Transport Safety Act 2003

The Railways and Transport Safety Act 2003 established the Office of Rail Regulation as a body corporate, taking over the function of the Rail Regulator which had been created by the Railways Act 1993.

It also introduced a railway safety levy (then payable to the Health and Safety Executive, but to be transferred to the Office of Rail Regulation under the Railways Act 2005), created the Rail Accident Investigation Branch within the Department for Transport, reformed the British Transport Police and amended laws relating to alcohol and drug use by shipping and aviation staff.

The full text of the Act is available in HTML chunks from the OPSI/HMSO website:

A PDF version (200 pages) is available from The Railways Archive.
