TSI Migration and Transitions – TSI 2022 and beyond

On 24 January 2020 the European Commission sent a request to the European Union Agency for Railways (ERA) for the preparation of the Digital rail and Green freight TSI revision package (2022 revision). Within the package the European Commission submitted the change request CR236 ‘Review and streamline transitional provisions’. This change request was assigned to the recently established ERA Topical Working Group (TWG) Migration and Transition, the results of which will have significant impact on the overall application of the TSIs and by extension the vehicle/infrastructure projects and daily business of the rail sector over the next decade.

CER joined ALE, ALLRAIL, EAL, EPTTOLA, FEDECRAIL, ERFA, NB-RAIL, UIP, UIRR and UNIFE in outlining the sector's perspective on this workstream in the joint position paper below.
