This consultation is addressed to CER, EIM and ETF under article 4 of the Agency regulation.
ERA intends to recommend the amendment of Appendix A of the draft TSI Operation and Traffic Management as supported by RISC, based on ERA-recommendation ERA/REC/09-2011/INT:
“The operating rules for ERTMS/ETCS and ERTMS/GSM-R are specified in the Technical Document "ETCS and GSM-R rules and principles – version 2" published on the ERA website (www.era.europa.eu).”
Shall be replaced by text as follows:
“The operating rules for ERTMS/ETCS and ERTMS/GSM-R are specified in the Technical Document "ETCS and GSM-R rules and principles – version 3" published on the ERA website (www.era.europa.eu)”.
The technical Document of “ERTMS operational rules” has been revised within an ERA-Working Party where all members of the sectoral dialogue committee were represented.
The process of the ERTMS CCM process has been followed.
Given the operational character of the content of Apendix A a translation as such is not possible. In order to understand Appendix A in full extent, it must be linked to the non-harmonised operational rules and names and implemented into the national system. For example a French translation cannot be used as such in France and Belgium because definitions and operational rules differ. This means for us that a translation can result in a wrong interpretation in comparison to the English version.
So exceptionally this consultation is published in English only.
Documents for consultation:
- ERTMS operational principles and rules version 3 (EN)
- Report on ERTMS operational principles and rules 3 (EN)
Comments to the consultation should be sent to “era-con-2012-01-INT” followed by “@era.europa.eu”; and can be sent in English, French or German.
