A joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Union Agency for Railways in collaboration with Ministries for Transport, National Safety Authorities, and Industry Associations
The technical pillar of the 4th Railway Package (4RP) introduces one single process for cross-border vehicle authorisation in Europe. Market participants in Europe should learn about the advantages of this new authorisation regime, and lend it their support – as one of the key challenges for this process is the transposition of European legislation into national law, which will have to be complete by 2019/2020.
The implementing acts that lay the foundation for these European processes will be voted by the EU Member States in the Railway Interoperability and Safety Committee (RISC) in July 2017. In and get a full-hearted buy-in of national decision makers for the new European processes, it is necessary to engage in an open an intense debate, and put forward clear and concise information about these new processes.
The European Commission and the European Union Agency for Railways have therefore launched a series of regional debates, where stakeholders can voice their opinions and doubts in their native language, and get a clear idea of the benefits of the new process.
