1.1 General
This Standard (herein referred to as “this Document”) applies to proponents making any change to a railway system that is technical, operational, or organizational in nature.

The basic elements for the safety management system include procedures and methods for carrying out risk evaluation and analysis and implementing risk control measures whenever a change in operating conditions or new material imposes new risks, or changes to existing risks, on the infrastructure or on operations. That basic element of the safety management system is covered by this Standard.

1.2 Terminology
In this Document, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with this Document; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of this Document.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.1  Aperçu

Cette norme énonce les exigences et les recommandations relatives au partage des données recueillies par les stations de surveillance hydrométéorologique et examine l’utilisation de matériel et de logiciels pour ce faire. La norme tient compte des éléments suivants, ainsi que de toute exigence ou recommandation à cet égard :

• La maturité des réseaux connexes;
• Les politiques et ententes de partage de données existantes ou prévues;
• Les formats de rapports;
• Le référencement géospatial et temporel;
• La validation des données;
• La transparence des données;
• Le transfert et l’échange de données;
• L’application d’indicateurs à des données, y compris en cas de données estimées, agrégées et non vérifiées; et
• La propriété intellectuelle des données partagées.

Cette norme ne traite pas de la collecte ni de la présentation des données hydrométéorologiques.

1.2  Terminologie

Dans cette norme, le terme « doit » indique une exigence, c’est‐à‐dire une prescription que l’utilisateur est obligé à respecter pour assurer la conformité à la norme; « devrait » indique une recommandation ou ce qu’il est conseillé mais non obligatoire de faire; et « peut » indique une possibilité ou ce qu’il est permis de faire.

Les notes qui accompagnent les articles ne comprennent pas de prescriptions ni de recommandations. Elles servent à séparer du texte les explications ou les renseignements qui ne font pas proprement partie de la norme.

Les notes au bas des figures et des tableaux font partie de ceux‐ci et peuvent être rédigées comme des prescriptions.

Les annexes sont qualifiées de normatives (obligatoires) ou d’informatives (facultatives) pour en préciser l’application.
