Expert advisors


We work closely with expert panels and other bodies both in the UK and in Europe to ensure our regulatory approach is built on expertise, cutting-edge thinking and best practice.

Consumer expert panel

Our consumer expert panel provides independent advice to help us fulfil our role as the railways' safety, economic consumer and competition regulator.

Road expert panel

Our road expert panel provides advice and support to our work as the Highways Monitor. The panel is advisory and will assist us by contributing views, expressing opinions, and advising us on highways sector interests or issues.

Research and Development Advisory Group

The ORR Directors' Group supported the establishment of an internal Research and Development Advisory Group (RDAG) in September 2006 to help ORR discharge its duties under Schedule 3, paragraph 2(2) of the Railways Act 2005.
