The disputes committee for the performance scheme was established to deal with claims for corrections that have been rejected by Bane NOR SF (Bane NOR) and where the railway companies do not agree with the rejection.
One participant is appointed from Bane NOR and one from each of the railway companies that operate services on the railway network in Norway. A substitute participant from Bane NOR and one from each of the railway companies can also be appointed.
When a matter is submitted to the disputes committee, a meeting should be scheduled for day 12 to 21, see “The disputes committee’s procedures”. One person from Bane NOR and one from the railway company that submitted the matter to the disputes committee must attend the meeting.
The executive officer who considered the claim for a correction presents the railway company’s written reasons for the correction and Bane NOR’s written reasons for the rejection. This information is retrieved from “Min Side/My page” in the customer portal. The executive officer can also assist with accessing TIOS during the meeting if necessary. The executive officer keeps minutes from the meeting, which must be approved by both parties. The executive officer shall not take part in the discussion.
If further information exists, this must be presented by the respective participants in the meeting.
