There are thousands of Chinese freight wagons and hundreds of passenger vehicles running in Australia which probably have wheels axles and other components from this supplier or from the same original factories. Ask Railteco to provide references for the particular items you want that are already in use in Australia.

You would have such scenario's covered in your rail operator's accreditation.

No, its up to you to prove to the accrediting authority in Australia that you have appropriate systems in place to operate safely on the rail network.

Saying, "Oh the Chinese supplier told me it was OK" is not good enough.

TBH your either a troll or have no idea whatsoever of what you are doing.

Oh sure just ask the supplier to certify they are suitable, they'll tell you what you want to hear (which may not be that truthfull!)
Remember that 10 CSR and 2 BK locos came from a Chinese manufacturer with certificates stating that they contained NO asbestos.....
And Guess what!
Another Chinese manufacturer supplied 40 locos to Kiwirail in NZ with similar certificates ........
And again Guess what!

As others have said, I think you'll find under the Act you are prohibited from shifting responsibility and blaming someone else if it goes wrong.

You import it and use it, you are responsible.

so really it is like an access agreement whereby the operator must prove  to the accrediting authority in Australia that the imported product will be safe to use ,like a carriage must get accreditation before it is accepted by the network provider to be a part of an access agreement

Correct. Chain of responsibility as an ethical and legal component of supply chain management and the procurement strategy comes into play here as well.
