Implementation of the Recast - ‘Conditions of access to services’ – Article 13

In view of the intention of the European Commission (DG MOVE) to start the implementation of Article 13 of the Recast ‘Conditions of access to services’, the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) would like to draw attention to some concerns related to this early attempt at implementing the aforementioned article before the end of the transposition period of the entire Recast.

CER attaches high importance to the work undertaken by the European Commission together with the SERAC and is supportive of an efficient implementation of the Recast. CER also appreciates the efforts put by all parties involved into the preparation of the Commission implementing regulations. It is with the objective of bringing positive impetus to the rail market that CER would like to raise its concerns regarding the implementation of Article 13.
