GRB Guide to the 4th Railway Package Technical Pillar

Thursday, 30 November 2017

Displayed as a series of 'frequently asked questions', this Guide illustrates in different chapters the reforms in the field of vehicle authorisation, safety certification and ERTMS trackside approval as well as the new role of the European Union Agency for Railways.

The Guide has been written and designed for all railway actors, such as railway undertakings, infrastructure managers, wagon keepers, entities in charge of maintenance, manufacturers, locomotive leasing companies, etc. Given the fact that the implementation of the Fourth Railway Package is an ongoing process, the Guide will be updated on a regular basis, in line with the progress of the reforms being made at EU level.

The Guide is accessible online on the GRB website:

The Group of Representative Bodies (GRB) – which includes CER – is a grouping of railway associations in Europe with the role of supporting, in a transverse way, the rail sector’s input to the European Union Agency for Railways work programme and its effect on safety and interoperability.
