MISSION
To advance the safety of railways in Ireland through diligent supervision and enforcement

The Railway Safety Commission is the independent regulatory agency charged with oversight of the safety of all railway activities in the State.

The RSC is required to ensure that each railway organisation operating in the State understands and effectively manages the risk to safety associated with its activities.

The RSC's responsibilities include supervision and enforcement of railway safety standards and the approval of new rolling stock and infrastructure.

Under European Law the RSC is the National Safety Authority for railways and is responsible for ensuring the implementation of various technical and procedural safety related changes to harmonise Irish railway activities with the European requirements.
