The European Commission, DG VII, has published an invitation to tender for the completion of a study on the integration of national conventional rail systems in Europe. The study will involve an examination of possible measures to integrate further the conventional rail systems of the Member States in order to improve the competitiveness of this form of transport. The examination should cover the following policy areas: - Interoperability (i.e. the capacity for movement across frontiers without interruption for technical or operational reasons); - Social aspects of interoperability (i.e. the capacity for cross-border working of train crews); - The facilitation of border crossings (i.e. the reduction of delays at borders for procedural reasons). The study, which should be completed within seven months, will also be required to deal with measures to help complete the single market for railway equipment.
