Find out about the agreements OTSI has in place with other organisations to support delivery of its work while maintaining its independence.
In 2013, the NSW Chief Investigator entered into a collaboration agreement with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) and the Chief Investigator Transport Safety Victoria (CITS). The collaboration agreement sets out arrangements for the conduct of independent rail investigations to support reforms introduced in 2013 for a national rail regulatory framework.
Under the agreement, OTSI may conduct some rail investigations in NSW under the provisions of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003 (Cth). The agreement is reviewed every three years.
In 2022, OTSI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to articulate its role within the Transport cluster and document its relationship with TfNSW as cluster lead. The MOU outlines the roles and responsibilities of TfNSW and OTSI and sets out the terms under which both agencies will cooperate, collaborate and share information.
Completed investigation reports are available on both the OTSI and ATSB websites.
