The OSJD performed this work pursuant to its plan of action for 2014 and subsequent years. The ERA performed this work pursuant to section 4.10 (Interconnection to a 1520/1524-mm Rail System) of the Mandate received by the Agency for Drafting Technical Specifications for interoperability (TSI) and ERA Recommendation (ERA/REC/03-2008/INT от 17/11/2009) on Relationship with 1520/1524 mm Railway Network

07-10-2015Vehicle keeper marking register
23-09-2015Latest list of all collected TSIs’ deficiencies as submitted to the RISC meeting
18-09-2015The railway safety Directive requires that each vehicle shall have an Entity in charge of Maintenance (ECM) assigned to it and decision 2007/756/EC of 9th November 2007 requires that this entity must be registered in the NVR. Equivalent requirements are outlined in Appendix G of COTIF 1999. Until the NVR is not fully usable through Europe at the same level of content and accessibility, it is difficult for the RUs to establish the link between the wagon and the ECM. The associations (UIC, UIP and ERFA) in cooperation with ERA developed a solution to bridge the information gap between RUs and ECMs (see the file “keeper-ecm-declaration” and the Guidelines for the Keepers “ECM Declaration” (this version replaces all previous versions of the keeper self-declaration implementation guide). This declaration does not provide a direct link between the wagon and the ECM, but ascertains the necessary information for the RUs. The mentioned “keeper-ecm-declaration" file will be updated at the end of June and later on a monthly base.
