Each semester and before allowing the movement of trains after fire, flood, earthquake, storm or other occurrence that might have damaged the track structure, the rail transport system operator must have a visual inspection of the tracks in service undertaken by a person who has the knowledge, training and experience necessary to detect the defects in the track referred to in sections 60 to 82.
Inspections must be made on foot or on equipment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, turnouts and railway crossings must be inspected on foot.
The identification of the track inspected, the location and nature of any anomalies, the corrective measures taken, the date of inspection and the name of the person who carried out the inspection must all be recorded in an inspection register and kept on the site by the operator for at least 2 years from the date of inspection.
