Registers

It is not necessary to register for NOTIF-IT in order to search for national railway rules or draft national railway rules. They are available for the public without a user-account.

Representatives of Member States have to request an account in NOTIF-IT in order to upload files and manage the content of the notifications. If you are a representative of a Member State (e.g. Ministry of Transportation, National Railway Safety Authority) and would like to have an account or receive further information on the use of NOTIF-IT, please contact us by e-mail. More information on National Rules

The Reference Document Database (RDD) is a public register providing public access, without registration, to the National Technical Rules (and their classification) published by the Member States.

RDD provides a free subscription to the publications via the home page, just above the list of publications:

  • RDD Publications RSS Feed
  • Subscribe e-mail for notification of publications.

There are two main possibilities:

  • for online consultation, please access from the RDD menu (Part II - NRD\National Technical Rules) which displays the NTR search page, select the desired filtering options and press the ‘Search’ button
  • for offline consultation, please access from the RDD menu (Reports), select the desired report from the provided list (e.g. List of National Technical) and after selecting the desired parameters for the report, press the ‘View Report’ button. After execution, the report can be saved (we recommend MS Excel format) for offline consultation.
