ACRI is structured to provide the greatest flexibility to Participants. Participants can join ACRI as part of agreed work programs, individually for specific projects or both. Participants determine the types of research or analysis to be undertaken.

An additional form of participation is through Strategic Research Partners such as Universities or other entities that undertake research. Specific Groups, for example Rail Industry Safety Standards Board (RISSB) Working Groups, Australasian Railway Association (ARA) Working Groups, TrackSafe, other government agencies or other interested entities, can also request and fund research to be undertaken by ACRI or join agreed work programs.

All work undertaken by ACRI is targeted to meet the needs of individual Participants whether as part of agreed work programs or specific projects. Clear ownership and usage rights are established from the outset of each project.  There is a strong focus on project management to ensure that outputs are valuable, timely and produced on a cost effective basis and an analysis of the effectiveness of the project is undertaken on the completion of each project.
