We are delighted that Chris Bolt, the man who will head the new Office Of Rail Regulation (ORR) from 5 July 2004, will be addressing delegates at this event. His appointment and tenure in office comes at a crucial time for the industry, one of great uncertainty, as it awaits the results of the government's recently announced review into the structure of the UK's railways. You will be able to hear Chris Bolt's views and get the opportunity to question him directly. As well as discussing the ORR's key priorities in terms of developing the regulatory agenda, he will also give an insight into his plans to achieve industry-wide consensus in terms of the sector's key outputs.
Both thought provoking and informative, this one-day conference will focus on the evolving regulatory economic and legal framework in which the rail industry operates. The government has instigated a move away from the single-person regulator model, which has been in operation since privatisation, to the creation of a regulatory board. This is a fundamental change, with major implications for the whole industry and this event offers you the ideal opportunity to question some of the key players directly.

Hear from, amongst others, the SRA's Nicola Shaw, Paul Plummer from Network Rail, Jeremy Long of First Group and Dr Dieter Helm. Issues such as the changing dynamics of decision-making in rail regulation, the need for the regulators to be independent from government control and the ORR's relationship with the Strategic Rail Authority will be high on the conference agenda.
