Waiver Numbering System (effective April 2011)
Waiver number :      AA-AA-NNNN (Corridor-Discipline-Number)

Corridor   =         EW - East West
                     HV - Hunter Valley
                     NS - North South
                     CRN - NSW CRN
                     ALL - More than one or all Corridors

Discipline =         SG - Signalling
                     EL - Electrical
                     TC - Track and Civil (including Structures)
                     RS - Rolling Stock
                     PE - Plant and Equipment
                     CO - Communications

Number     =         An ascending number that increases with every new waiver (next positive integer for discipline type)




Old Waiver Numbering System (pre April 2011)
Section 6.1.1 of PP-169 (Engineering Waiver Approval) states that each new waiver is to have an EWA (Engineering Waiver Approval) number.
           Waiver Number: EWAF / CORRIDOR CODE / DISCPLINE CODE / STARTDATE CODE / NUMBER
Where:
EWAF =               Engineering Waiver Approval Form (This is a prefix number required by PP-169)
Corridor Code =      A numerical code indicating the corridor that the waiver refers to (based on work group number codes)
                     Where                   100 = SA/WA
                                             150 = Victoria
                                             200 = NSW - Hunter Valley
                                             300 = NSW - North Coast
                                             400 = NSW - North West
                                             500 = NSW - West
                                             600 = North-South Corridor
                                             700 = NSW - South
                                             800 = All NSW
                                             850 = CRN
                                             900 = All ARTC

Discipline Code =    A letter code indicating the discipline that the waiver refers to
                      Where                  TR = Track
                                             SG = Signal
                                             RS = Rolling Stock
                                             BS = Bridges and Structures
                                             AD = Administration Systems (eg Defects, etc)

Start Date Code =     A 6 digit code referring to the start date (or date prepared for approval) for the waiver in the form XXYYZZ

                      Where                  XX = day
                                             YY = month
                                             ZZ = Year

Number =              An ascending number that increases with every new waiver (next positive integer for discipline type)

Worked Example
A simple example would be, say, for the next (first) waiver which is track grinding to start on the 2nd February 2005 in the Hunter Valley, the number would be….

                      EWAF 200/TR/020205/001

Even though this system is somewhat complicated, if done properly it will aid traceability for all future waivers…
since at a quick glance at the number, the start date, corridor and asset type can be determined without having to read the form.
