09-03-2017The Agency has received the mandate to further harmonise conformity assessment approaches among Member States through the revision of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1158/2010 on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining railway safety certificates, Commission Regulation (EU) No 1169/2010 on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining a railway safety authorisation (also named ‘the Common Safety Methods (CSMs) on Conformity Assessment’) and Commission Regulation (EU) No 1177/2012 on a common safety method for supervision by national safety authorities after issuing a safety certificate or safety authorisation (also named ‘the CSM on Supervision’). The Agency proposes to repeal the above Regulations and recommends that the Commission adopts the draft Commission Delegated Regulations included below. To accompany its recommendation, the Agency has also developed: - An accompanying report, which provides information about the development of this recommendation, working methods, the minority opinions raised by the stakeholders and the Agency conclusions; and - A light impact assessment report.
17-11-2016The Agency has received the mandate to further harmonise conformity assessment approaches among Member States through the revision of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1158/2010 on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining railway safety certificates, Commission Regulation (EU) No 1169/2010 on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining a railway safety authorisation (also named ‘the Common Safety Methods (CSMs) on Conformity Assessment’) and Commission Regulation (EU) No 1177/2012 on a common safety method for supervision by national safety authorities after issuing a safety certificate or safety authorisation (also named ‘the CSM on Supervision’). To that end, the Agency shall submit to the Commission its final recommendation on the revision of the above CSMs not later than 1 June 2017. In accordance with Article 6 and Article 7 of Regulation (EU) 2016/796, the Agency shall consult the social partners and organisations representing rail freight customers and passengers. In accordance with the Commission mandate (C(2016) 5504), the Agency shall also consult the network of National Safety Authorities set up under Article 38(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/796 and Article 18(4) of Directive (EU) 2016/798.
24-07-2014The purpose of the document is to describe in more details the planning of the project, including its organisation, for the revision of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1158/2010 on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining railway safety certificates, Commission Regulation (EU) No 1169/2010 on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining a railway safety authorisation and Commission Regulation (EU) No 1077/2012 on a common safety method for supervision by national safety authorities after issuing a safety certificate or safety authorisation.
16-06-2014This paper sets out an analysis of the application of the Common Safety Method (CSM) for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining railway safety, the CSM for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining a railway safety authorisation and the CSM on supervision. This analysis is required to support the Mandate from the Commission agreed by Rail Interoperability and Safety Committee that the CSMs need to be reviewed and revised in order to ensure that a more consistent approach across NSAs is adopted.
23-10-2013The purpose of this guidance is to explain the general principles underpinning the cooperation and coordination of NSAs while supervising railway undertakings operating in more than one Member State and give examples of how those principles could be enacted by NSAs. It will provide practical information to NSAs so that they can make sure that their supervision process is appropriate and in line with the principles.
05-12-2012The main focus of this guide is to provide practical help for NSAs on effectively conducting their supervisory activities after the award of the safety certificates or safety authorisations.
06-07-2012This study examines how NSA carry out their duty of supervision and enforcement within the European rail market with a view to identifying good practice and supporting the process of harmonisation.
