Safety regulations and standards for European railways

The European Community's current transport policy is aimed at strengthening the position of railways on the transport market. For this purpose a range of measures have been and still remain to be taken within the framework of the White Paper "A strategy for revitalising the Community's railways". Here the Commission underlines the need for high safety levels of railway traffic, however it is still perceptible that different Member States have different views on the concrete measures to achieve this high level.

In this context, the European Commission, DG VII, has published an invitation to tender for a study providing an overview of rail safety in Member States, and assessing to what extent the different regulations or practices have an impact on railway interoperability, in particular measures on cross-border traffic operation and on the railway supply market.
