Background: Why this Recommendation was developed

Output text

The ATSB recommends that Pacific National further develop and validate their procedure for the use of Wheel Condition Monitoring systems. The procedure should include but not be limited to the following:
a) identification of limiting factors and circumstances for the withdrawal of wagons from service when a fault or number of developing fault readings has
been detected
b) formalisation of the actions to make sure that faults detected are acted on in a specified time
c) formalisation of the actions by train crews and others when faults detected enroute are advised by the Australian Rail Track Corporation.
