|Description: ||The CSM for Risk Assessment needs further harmonised Risk Acceptance Criteria (RAC) than the one, which is already existing in point 2.5.4 of its Annex I. This present RAC refers only to failures of functions of technical systems, which have potential to lead directly to catastrophic consequences.
To address also the point of the acceptance of risks related to human interactions within the railway system, the ERA has launched the "Study on the Assessment and the Acceptance of Risks Related to Human Interactions within the European Railways".
