Organisation Profile

The RSR’s oversight role begins before the first train leaves the station. To operate on the South African rail network, train operators must apply to the RSR for a safety permit, demonstrating that they meet prescribed operational requirements.

Our highest priority is to ensure the safety of passengers, communities and all stakeholders.

We aim to be proactive, tirelessly working to improve the standards of the rail network to prevent safety incidents.
