Please use these forms for all new access contracts, changes to existing access contracts and new connection contracts. We have the authority, under the Railway Act 1993, to grant general authorizations, and the authorizations for rail access and correspondence contracts are also mentioned here. A consolidated (or compliant) agreement is a document containing all approved amendments to the existing approved agreement. The SoAR Panel must approve all of our access rights sales before industry consultation takes place and the track access contract is submitted for approval to the Office of Rail and Road (ORR). It must also approve our response to the ORR with respect to contentious applications. In some cases, exemptions are applicable to remove the requirement for a specific authorization for agreed and contentious sales. Customers who develop their rail business have a number of resources: see our information page for operators and our rail freight pages. Our Sale of Access Rights (SoAR) panel provides control to the entire network to negotiate and arrange the sale of access to train operators. The main task of the SoAR panel is to ensure that we apply, if necessary, a consistent approach across the network and that we use capacity optimally at an acceptable level of performance. You will find a complete list of the consolidated agreements we have with our existing customers on the ORR website. This page contains standard application forms and model contracts to be used when requesting access to Network Rail`s infrastructure or connection to the network.
