Recommendation For Use
A Recommendation For Use (RFU) is a document for INTERNAL USE within NB Rail, recording questions, issues or concerns and the agreed answers.
An RFU first goes through an examination stage when the proposed text is discussed and / or being drawn up and becomes finalised when the answer has been approved by the Notified Bodies Co-ordination group i.e. the "Plenary Meeting".
Although RFU's do not require formal approval from external bodies, the regulatory committee known as the "Railway Interoperability and Safety Committee (RISC)" can however comment of RFU's and take measures regarding them in accordance with the procedure provided for in Article 29 of the Directive 2008/57/EC.
