Engineering Standards Library

Our Engineering Standards Library contains current, authorised and controlled engineering standards and specifications.

The standards are used for the design, construction, commissioning, operation and decommissioning of our assets and infrastructure including infrastructure which is maintained, repaired, operated and managed by the franchise lessees and PTV.

The standards are updated versions of the VRIOG standards and Telecommunications Engineering Information in the form of standards, specifications and technical data.
