As of January 2016, the National Vehicle Registers (NVR) of all EU Member States are connected to the European Centralised Virtual Vehicle Register (ECVVR). The NVRs of the following non-EU OTIF Contracting States are also connected to ECVVR: Serbia, Switzerland.
The European Centralised Virtual Vehicle Register (ECVVR) is based on Article 33 of the Interoperability Directive and the Commission Decision 2007/756/EC. It consists of the National Vehicle Registers (NVR) in the Member States and the Virtual Vehicle Register (VVR), a search engine hosted by the Agency.
The purpose of the ECVVR is to provide administrative information (e.g. authorisation data, keeper, owner, entity in charge of maintenance ECM) on vehicles placed into service on the European Union railway network.
ECVVR has been put in service in 2010; access to the ECVVR is restricted. Data for over 1 million railway vehicles is available via ECVVR.
