Fees and charges related to safety certification and vehicle authorisation

Fees and charges related to safety certification and vehicle authorisation

Thursday, 8 December 2016

The Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) is concerned about a cost increase to the sector for safety certification, vehicle authorisation and ERTMS trackside approval. CER reiterates that the original intention of the Fourth Package’s Technical Pillar is to make safety certification and vehicle authorisation faster and cheaper. A cost increase would endanger the implementation of the Fourth Railway Package’s Technical Pillar becoming a success and put the sector’s competitiveness at a disadvantage compared to other transport modes.
