Rail Vehicle Authorisation for South- and Eastern Europe
Announcing European Guideline 2016/797/EG on the railway interoperability in Europe, better known as 4th Railway Package (4RP), the European Parliament is taking a further step towards opening up the railway markets in it’s member states.
This gives rise to new opportunities for railway undertakings (RU) arising thus new opportunities for
economical transnational rail freight services and appealing passenger relations for their customers.
Nevertheless, prerequisite for efficient operation without loss of time or comfort is a country specific authorisation in cross-border service of railway vehicles for each member state.
