Cleaning-up of national rules  
The Interoperability unit issued in March 2016 a cleaning up plan covering the following remaining national rules in addition to the Technical Specifications for Interoperability:

- National rules under Interoperability Directive:
  • Rules for vehicle authorisation: RST part (Annex I),
  • Rules for vehicle authorisation: CCS part (ETCS,GSM-R),
  • Rules for fixed installations (Annex III).

- National rules under Annex II of the Safety Directive (EU) 2016/798:

  • Rules of types 1, 2 and 6 to be withdrawn by MSs,
  • Rules of types 3 and 4 under review in the framework of the revision of the TSI OPE (Annex II),
  • Rules of type 5 covering requirements on Staff.  

- Transition from the Reference Document Database and NOTIF-IT to the Single Rules Database.

The latest progress report is available here.
