Contractors who work within our rail corridors, or provide other high-risk services, will need to be registered and compliant in ARTC’s Contractor Compliance System (Avetta).

ARTC has partnered​ with Avetta to collect and audit safety and commercial data, to ensure contractors are pre-qualified and compliant with our safety requirements.

Data to be collected include:

  • Company information
  • Insurances
  • Safety manuals
  • Trade & Technical capabilities, and
  • Safety statistics, etc

As each contract is created or amended, a check will be done to assess whether the scope requires Avetta compliance.

Note: Details on Contractor Compliance System requirements and use refer to ARTC Procedure: FPR-GL-042 – Business Rules for ARTC Contractor Compliance System.
