  • Office of Rail and Road: Guidance on developing & maintaining Staff Competence

    Please see: Consultation on the revision of ORR guidance on developing & maintaining staff

    ORR intends that RSP1 remains generic in nature to ensure its overall content is inherently substantially “future proof”. It does not believe that a major technical revision is required and broadly proposes to add content on the integration of non-technical skills (NTS) into competence management systems, as well as updating references.

  • Consultation on 'Non-binding guidelines for reporting of non-financial information by companies'

    The European Commission (EC) has launched a public consultation to help inform its non-binding guidelines on how large public-interest entities, such as listed companies and banks, could disclose social (including health and safety), environmental and other non-financial information.

    These guidelines aim to assist companies in the reporting process, providing them with a methodology that will facilitate the disclosure of relevant, useful and comparable non-financial information. The guidelines will be drawn up in line with the requirements and scope set out in the Directive on disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by certain large companies and groups, which applies to large public-interest entities with more than 500 employees.
