Access Pre-Advice System replaces R.A.I.N

Access Pre-Advice System (APS) replaces R.A.I.N from 30 March 2020.

As with R.A.I.N, APS is an intranet based application for coordinating planned non-LPA network access. APS is managed by the Maintenance Access Planner within the Asset Management Division of Engineering and Maintenance.

This process is used for all non-LPA network access excluding access responding to Network Incidents and any other network access deemed necessary by the NIM.

The intent of APS is to provide visibility of planned non-LPA network access to Operational Stakeholders. APS is used for information and coordination, not for approval.
