COR - Safety Management Data system

With this Position Paper the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) responds to the stakeholders consultation on the “COR Safety Management Data system” of the European Union Agency for Railways.

CER believes that the exchange of appropriate safety-related data brings added value to all players in the sector and supports the Agency’s approach and work in terms of advancing COR (common occurence reporting).

Nevertheless, some issues in the COR project remain open points and need clarification and further discussion. CER acknowledges the concerns of some NSAs, and some CER members, in terms of national reporting versus European reporting as these parties already have mature reporting (and risk analysis) systems in place. Therefore CER supports linking the national reporting and the European reporting, to avoid the need for parties to input information twice.
