RSICTC's Role in Advocacy

THE RAILWAY SUPPLY INSTITUTE COMMITTEE ON TANK CARS

The Railway Supply Institute Committee on Tank Cars (RSICTC) is led by senior executives of the member companies involved in the manufacture of most rail tank cars in North America. The Committee is informed by the industry’s most knowledgeable rail tank car engineers. As such, the Committee is an important source of factual information about the design, manufacture and modification of rail tank cars. The Committee brings this knowledge to the policy-making agencies in the U.S. and Canada to address the key question facing the design and production of tank cars, including and especially, safety issues.
