However, when setting the maximum price of regulated tariffs, it is made the distinction between conventional prices for adults and children. In addition, the government has introduced a series of rebate rates, in accordance with Section 28 of the RA93, for certain groups, including youth, people with disabilities and the elderly. Other concessionist travel schemes exist with specific systems for railway workers. Passenger airlines may also charge customers different prices for the same service, depending on the extent to which they purchase their ticket in advance or the flexibility of their ticket. The register indicates that the agreements aim to achieve their objective of protecting third parties: the Railway and Road Transport Board shows that an astonishing number of rail accidents occur each year, resulting not only in major disruptions, but also in sometimes fatal injuries. Under the RARs, the RRO must establish a specific pricing framework and pricing rules for infrastructure for which an infrastructure manager is responsible and ensure that fees for rail infrastructure comply with the rules established by these regulations.

In Scotland, it is likely that an order under the Transport and Works (Scotland) Act 2007 (a TAWS contract) will be required, with an application to Scottish ministers being made. Prior to the 2007 Act, managed transport systems were generally authorised by a private law of the Scottish Parliament, but a TAWS regulation may grant similar rights and powers, and it is now unlikely that the Scottish Parliament will hold a private account for matters that may be authorised by a TAWS regulation.

The ORR also publishes model clauses for inclusion in access contracts. Our Complaints Policy (CCCP). Following a major security incident on the railway, there will be a series of investigations that together can take many years after an incident. There will likely be a police investigation to determine whether a serious offence such as manslaughter has been committed, an ORR investigation to determine whether there is a violation of HSWA and other relevant safety rules, and in the event of a fatal accident, there will also be a coronary disease that will determine the cause of death. After very large (national) incidents, a public inquiry can also be conducted.
