Common Occurrence Reporting (COR) - Safety Management Data

With this Position Paper the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) summarises in writing its oral intervention at the ERA workshop on the COR Safety Management Data System in Lille on 22 and 23 February 2017, supported by EIM and UIC.

CER, EIM and UIC believe that the exchange of appropriate safety-related data brings added value to all players in the sector. We acknowledge the concerns of some NSAs, and some members of the rail operating community, in terms of national reporting versus European reporting as these parties already have mature reporting (and risk analysis) systems in place. Therefore CER, EIM and UIC support linking the national reporting and the European reporting, to avoid any double reporting with both.
