European Railway Agency - ERA

Making the railway system work better for society.

Organisation Code Register (OCR)

The EVR Decision 2018/1614 defines the Organisation Codes as a code consisting of four alphanumeric characters. Any Organisation accessing the EVR shall be assigned an organisation code. Organisation Codes are allocated by the Agency to all interested parties, operating in the European Railway system.

The Organisation Codes are the equivalent of Company Codes issued by UIC.

In the first phase of implementation of the Organisation Code allocation, the Agency issues solely alphanumeric codes. Companies involved into TAF/TAP data exchange and companies cooperating with OSJD members, still need to obtain a 4 digit numeric code from UIC.

Any request for a new alphanumeric Organisation Code or for modification of Organisation data should be submitted to the Agency by e-mail using the dedicated form in Excel
