This standard specifies the terms and definitions, geometric and non-geometric design, parameter and tolerances, performance requirements, test methods or inspection method, and marking of rail turnouts.

The main switch and crossing components are represented in turnouts and the principles used in turnouts apply equally to more complex layouts.

This standard was developed with the following objectives:
a) to provide a comprehensive standard that specifies requirements for turnouts;
b) to be used as a guidance by users and manufacturers; and
c) to support Malaysia Rail Industry and the needs to promote a safe, efficient, effective and competitive industry.
