This progress report on the implementation of the Railway Safety Directive and of the Railway interoperability Directives describes the stage reached so far in implementing the Railway Safety Directive and in achieving interoperability of the European rail system since the first report adopted by the Commission in November 2006 (see COM(2006)0660 ). It responds to Article 31 of the Railway Safety Directive , Article 24 of the high-speed Interoperability Directive and Article 28 of the conventional rail Interoperability Directive .

Moreover, it builds on the findings of the first biennial report on the development of railway safety in the European Community issued by the European Railway Agency in 2008.

To prepare for this report, the European Commission commissioned a study analysing the degree of implementation of rail interoperability and safety legislation and progress in the field, and carried out a public consultation. The results of the consultation are summarised in the annex to this report.

It should be noted that recent amendments to the legal framework for railway safety and interoperability have not been considered in this report as they are still being transposed at national level (see COD/2006/0273 et COD/2006/0272 ).

The main finding are as follows:

Transposition by Member States : all Member States have notified the Commission of their national measures implementing the Railway Safety Directive, except for Luxembourg, against which infringement proceedings are still open. However, in several cases transposition has been delayed and did not meet the legal deadline specified in the Directive (30 April 2006). The next step is to check that all provisions of the Directive have been correctly implemented; this includes conformity checks and detailed analyses to verify, for example, the capacity of the national bodies to perform the tasks required by the Directives. These analyses are still in hand and it is therefore too early to draw final conclusions on this issue. However, some initial results are available on the notification of national safety rules and the setting up of national bodies. National safety rules and notification : almost 5000 national safety rules have been notified. On request of the Commission the Agency has examined these notifications and recommended asking for clarification or renotification of national safety rules by most Member States. As for the question of publishing the national safety rules, in 2009 the Agency is expected to propose ways to improve access. Setting up of national authorities and bodies : the role of the national safety authorities (NSA) is critical both in maintaining safety and in ensuring that safety is not a barrier to market opening when developing interoperability. Most of the NSAs were established in 2006 and 2007. At the end of 2008 there was only one Member State that had not yet established its NSA. Member States must also set up independent investigation bodies charged with investigating serious railway accidents. By April 2009, only one Member State had not yet set up its national investigation body (NIB). The Agency has established networks to facilitate cooperation and sharing of views and experience by these national bodies. Development and implementation of secondary legislation at European level : t he Railway Safety Directive provides for a large amount of secondary legislation to be adopted by the Commission and drafted by the Agency based on mandates issued by the Commission. In 2007 the first instrument was adopted: Commission Regulation (EC) No 653/2007 on the use of a common European format for safety certificates and application documents in accordance with Article 10 of Directive 2004/49/EC and on the validity of safety certificates delivered under Directive 2001/14/EC. Common safety methods for risk assessment and to assess achievement of safety targets were respectively adopted on 24 April 2009 and 5 June 2009 while further legislation is in preparation. Safety Certification : f urther information on the status of safety certification, and a proposed strategy for migration towards a single Community safety certificate, will be produced by the Agency in 2010 based on an evaluation of the safety certification procedures in the Member States. Safety Reporting : NSAs must publish annual reports giving information on the railway safety situation. The Agency uses these reports to continuously monitor the development of railway safety in the EU. Overall, initial figures confirm that railways are very safe for rail users, with fewer than 100 fatalities annually compared to about 40 000 on EU roads. Furthermore, the development of railway safety in the EU Member States can be regarded as very positive, as the number of passenger fatalities went down from around 400 in 1970 to only 58 in 2006. However, figures show that there is high representation of third parties in fatal railway accidents such as trespassers and level crossing users (together around 1 500 fatalities per year). Suicides constitute another particular feature of rail accidents: these fatalities are not reported as accidents and they are seldom subject to press reports. In 2006 they accounted for about 2 300, i.e. more than 60% of all fatalities. Implementation of the Interoperability Directives : a ll Member States have notified national measures implementing the Interoperability Directives 96/48/EC (High-Speed), Directive 2001/16/EC (Conventional Rail) and Directive 2004/50 (alignment of High-Speed and Conventional Rail Directives and extension of the scope).

Main conclusions : the Commission considers that the progress made thanks to the Community regulatory framework for railway safety and interoperability should encourage further development of the internal rail market , helping the emergence of new businesses, the cutting of entry costs and, ultimately, the competitiveness of rail as compared to other modes of transport. The analyses carried out in this report show mixed results for the time being.

1) As for rail safety , statistics indicate that the railway system in the Community is safe and the organisational changes stemming from the Community framework not only had no negative impact on safety but are expected to raise safety levels in the short and medium terms. From the market perspective, safety requirements still impose significant entry barriers . These relate mainly to the cost and the duration of the procedures involved at national level, their disparity across Europe and the lack of transparency/predictability. Substantial progress in this field is expected, partly due to the harmonisation of safety certificates for railway undertakings and the introduction of Common Safety Methods , and partly due to the cross-acceptance of national rules when authorising the placing into service of rail vehicles.

The success of these activities will depend on two conditions:

the full establishment of the newly created bodies , especially national safety authorities (NSAs), operating at similar levels of competence and efficiency. This is necessary to create mutual trust between NSAs. The Commission will therefore continue to check that Community legislation has been correctly transposed as far as new structures and tools are concerned; the leading role of the European Railway Agency in gradually harmonising safety rules and procedures and progressively replacing them with common methods. This role may evolve even further in the future towards complementing or supplementing the activities of NSAs in the certification and authorisation processes;

2) The secondary legislation on interoperability is expected to be completed in 2010 as far as the TEN-T network is concerned. This is certainly a priority for the Commission, as no real interoperability can be achieved without technical specifications for interoperability (TSIs) for all sub-systems. Another priority for the Commission is to manage the transition from the old regime to the new regime created by the TSIs and the registers of infrastructure and rolling stock.

Moreover, the increasing number of conformity certificates issued for sub-systems and the limited number of derogations indicate that, overall, the existing TSIs are being successfully applied. This also underlines the importance of Notified Bodies and their role in increasing competence and mutual trust. However, residual open points in TSIs and the limited geographical scope of the TSIs may hamper the future integration of the European rail system as they constitute obstacles to interoperability. Therefore it will be essential to close the open points and to extend the scope of TSIs in a reasonably short period of time.

The Commission also notes that progress towards interoperability is a slow process . Because of the long lifetime of rail infrastructure and rolling stock and the need to keep investment costs for the sector at an acceptable level, radical changes towards harmonised solutions are not possible. That is why the Commission intends to concentrate efforts on implementing those technical specifications that will deliver significant benefits in the short and medium term, namely the CCS, TAF, TAP and OPE TSIs.

Lastly, it will also be necessary for future revisions of TSIs to give a higher consideration to the principles developed under the strategy for simplifying the regulatory environment and to ensure the relevance, effectiveness and proportionality of the railway legislation. For example, more use of voluntary European standards will be considered.

The Commission will continue to check how the legal framework for railway safety and interoperability is implemented in practice, ensuring that all the secondary legislation is introduced (mainly TSIs for conventional rail and common safety methods) and the new Directives are transposed. It then intends to prepare a Communication reviewing its policies on interoperability and the safety of the Community railway system.

ACT: Commission Decision concerning a technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling sub-system of the trans-European High Speed rail system and modifying Annex A to Decision 2006/697/EC concerning the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system.

CONTENT: this act updates and renews the 2004 Technical Specification for Interoperability or “TSI” relating to control and command and signalling subsystem of the High Speed rails system in order to take account of technical progress and experience gained. The new TSI is based on work conducted by the AEIF.

At the same time the Decision corrects erroneous references in Annex A to the TSI laying down the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system (Council Decision 2006/679/EC. For a summary see above.)

In summary, this Decision:

- Adopts a TSI relating to the control and signalling subsystem of the trans-European High Speed railway. The TSI is set out in the Annex to this Decision.

- It will apply to all new, upgraded or renewed rolling stock or lines of trans-European high speed rail systems.

Member States must notify, within six months of notification the following to the European Commission:

- a list of applicable technical rules which are considered “Open Points”;

- a list of the subsystem signalling, radio and transmission matrix (Annex B);

- a list of the conformity assessment and checking procedures; and

- a list of the bodies appointed for carrying out conformity assessment.

Member States must establish a national implementation plan of the TSI and forward this plan to the other Member States and the Commission. On the basis of these national plans the Commission will draft an EU Master Plan.

- Annex A to the TSI “laying down the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system”, (Council Decision 2006/679/EC) will be replaced by Annex A to the high speed rail system TSI. This allows for an update of the 1529 mm track gauge locomotives and trains.

REPEAL: Decision 2002/731/EC is repealed. Its provisions will continue to apply in relation to the maintenance of projects authorised in accordance with the TSI annexed to that Decision. It will also apply to projects for a new line and for the renewal or upgrading of an existing line which are at an advanced stage of development – or which are the subject of a contract at the date of notifying the present Decision. Member States are obliged to notify an exhaustive list of the sub-systems and interoperability constituents which continue to apply the 2002 TSI to the Commission.

DATE OF NOTIFICATION: 7 November 2006.

This is the second Commission report on progress towards greater inter-operability within the European rail network. It has been prepared in accordance with Article 24 of Directive 96/48/EC.

The report analyses the rate at which the inter-operability Directives have been implemented. These Directives have sought to open-up the rail transport market and to make the rail network capable of providing a seamless cross-border passenger and freight service. The Report also reviews the measures taken at both a national and a European level to fulfil the provisions of the Directives and their progress towards inter-operability. A further feature of this Report is its assessment of the Directive’s relationship with the “European Railway Agency”, which became operational in 2005.

The Report finds that the high speed inter-operability directive is now well established and fully implemented (with the exception of Slovakia). E xtensive experience has been gained in the implementation of the TSIs, their conformity assessment and the progression of the high speed rail network. With regards to Slovakia, the Commission has now referred the case to the Court of Justice. The conventional rail interoperability directive expands the scope of the interoperable rail network and the first group of TSIs are expected to come into force by mid 2006. The cost benefit analysis of supporting the TSIs is a crucial activity which will lead to a better understanding of the TSIs full impact on the rail transport market. Member States should be encouraged to participate early in the development process of the TSI with the Agency. The report considers the benefits of merging certain TSIs for high speed and conventional railways in order to reduce the regulatory burden on operators and to allow the rail transport system to be viewed as a ‘total system’ thus potentially reducing overall costs. A merger of both interoperability directives is also being considered in the context of simplification and better regulation. The monitoring of the derogations granted against TSI is an important activity of the Committee, as the scope and quantity of derogations has a direct impact on the progress of interoperability.

The following progress interoperability progress report will be undertaken by the European Rail Agency. The first of their reports will be made available in 2007.

ACT: Commission Decision concerning the technical specifications of interoperability relating to the subsystem rolling stock – freight wagons’ of the trans-European conventional rail system.

CONTENT: this legislative act establishes the “Technical Specification for Interoperability”, or TSI, for rolling stock – freight wagons’ subsystem of the trans-European conventional system . The specifications of the new TSI are set out in Annex to this Decision.

The TSI will be fully applicable to the freight wagon rolling stock of the trans-European conventional rail system. Its specifications will apply to renewal but not to maintenance-related replacements. However, Member States are expected to apply the TSI to maintenance related replacements. Further, the putting into service of new, renewed or upgraded wagons must take full consideration of any impact they may have on the environment. In its current version the TSI does not deal fully with all aspects of interoperability. Those items which are not dealt with are classified as “Open Points” in Annex JJ of the TSI.

The Member States are required to notify the following items to the Commission and the other Member States within six months of this Decision being notified:

- The list of applicable technical rules relating to “Open points”;

- The conformity assessment and checking procedures.

- The names of those bodies authorised to carry out conformity-assessment and checking procedures.

In additions, Member States will be obliged to notify:

- national, bilateral or multilateral agreements between the Member States and railway undertakings or infrastructure managers, agreed either on a permanent or a temporary basis, and necessitated by the very specific or local nature of the intended transport service;

- bilateral or multilateral agreements between railway undertakings, infrastructure managers or safety authorities which deliver significant levels of local or regional interoperability;

- international agreements between one or more Member State and at least one third country or between railway undertakings or infrastructure managers and at least one railway undertaking or infrastructure manager of a third country which deliver significant levels of local or regional interoperability.

Provisions set out in Decision 2004/446/EC and which concern the basic parameters of the trans-European conventional rail system will no longer apply once this Decision becomes applicable.

DATE OF NOTIFICATION: 28 July 2006.

ACT: Commission Decision 2006/697/EC concerning the technical specifications for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystems of the trans-European conventional rail system.

CONTENT: this legislative act establishes the “Technical Specification for Interoperability”, or TSI, for the control-command and signalling sub-system of the trans-European conventional rail system . The specifications of the new TSI are set out in Annex to this Decision.

The purpose of the new TSI is to form a coherent implementing strategy for the design, construction, commissioning, upgrading, renewal and operation of the infrastructure and the rolling stock. A distinction is made between “renewal” and “maintenance”. Thus, the TSI will apply to renewals but not to maintenance related replacements although Member States are encouraged to apply the new TSI whenever possible.

The Decision also foresees the establishment of a “Change Control Management” process which will update and revise the TSI where technological advances require it. The updating process will be transferred from the AEIF to the European Railway Agency which is established by Regulation 881/2004/EC.

The Member States are required to notify the following items to the Commission and the other Member States within six months of this Decision being notified:

- The list of applicable technical rules relating to “Open points”;

- The conformity assessment and checking procedures.

- The names of those bodies authorised to carry out conformity-assessment and checking procedures.

The Member States will need to establish a national implementation plan for the TSI and forward it to both the Commission and the other Member States. On the basis of these national plans the Commission will prepare an EU master plan.

The Member States must make every effort for the availability of an external Specific Transmission Module, or STM, for their legacy Class B command-and-control systems by 31 December 2007.

With regards to the infrastructure and rolling stock already in services, at the time of entry into force of this TSI, the TSI should be applied from the time when work is envisaged on these infrastructures and rolling stock.

The Decision will become applicable six months after the date of its notification.

ACT: Commission Decision concerning the technical specification for interoperability relating to the subsystem “rolling stock – noise” of the trans-European conventional rail system.

CONTENT: Directive 2001/16/EC obliges the EU to prepare technical specifications (TSIs) for the subsystem “noise”. The European Association for Railway Interoperability (AEIF) was mandated by the Commission to prepare such specifications and in doing so relied on the best available expert knowledge. The basic parameters for the subsystem “noise” were adopted in 2004 by Commission Decision 2004/446. This latter Decision, sets out the basic parameters of the noise, freight wagons and telematic applications for freight technical specifications for interoperability. In adopting this Act, however, the provisions concerning the basic parameters of the tans-European conventional rail system shall no longer apply to Decision 2004/446.

In more specific terms, the TSI Noise is now adopted and refers to the trans-European conventional rail system as defined by Directive 2001/16, both in its Articles and in its Annexes. Under the terms of the Decision, Member States are expected to inform the EU of any agreements which contain requirements relating to noise emission limits. The types of agreements should include national agreements between the Member States and the railway undertakings, bi-lateral or multilateral agreements between railway undertakings, infrastructure managers or safety authorities and international agreements between one or more Member State and at least on third country or between railway undertakings of at least one Member State and at least one railway undertaking of a third country.

ACT : Commission Regulation 62/2006/EC concerning the technical specification for interoperability relating to the telematic applications for freight subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system.

CONTENT : This Regulation sets out the technical specification for interoperability (TSI) relating to the ‘telematics applications for freight’ subsystem of the conventional rail system referred to in Article 6(1) of Directive 2001/16/EC.

The purpose of this TSI is to ensure also that efficient interchange of information is at all times best adapted, with regard to quality and quantity, to changing requirements so that the transport process may remain as economically viable as possible and that freight transport on rail maintains its hold on the market against the intense competition it has to face. This means the building or upgrading of the trans-European conventional rail system for conventional rail transport and intermodal transport.

The TSI telematic applications covers the applications for freight services and the management of connections with other modes of transport which means that it concentrates on the transport services of an RU in addition to the pure operation of trains. Safety aspects are only considered as far as the existence of data elements, e.g. wrong or not actual values, may have an impact on the safety operation of a train. The geographical scope of this TSI is the trans-European conventional rail system as described in Annex I to the Directive 2001/16/EC. But this TSI may also be applied to the complete freight transport rail network of the Member States of the EU, with the restriction that the requirements of this TSI are not mandatory for freight transport arriving from or going to a non-EU country.

Content of this TSI: this TSI:

- indicates its intended scope of the telematic applications subsystem for freight;

- lays down the essential requirements for this subsystem and its interface vis-à-vis other subsystems;

- establishes the functional and technical specifications to be met by the subsystem and its interfaces vis-à-vis other subsystems;

- determines the interoperability constituents and interfaces covered by European specifications, including European standards, which are necessary to achieve interoperability within the trans-European conventional rail system;

- states, in each case under consideration, the procedures for the assessment of conformity or suitability for use. This includes, in particular, the modules defined in Council Decision 93/465/EEC or, where appropriate, the specific procedures to be used to assess either the conformity to or the suitability for use of interoperability constituents and ‘EC’ verification of subsystems;

- indicates the strategy for implementing the TSI. In particular it is necessary to specify the stages to be completed in order to make a gradual transition from the existing situation to the final situation in which compliance with the TSI shall be the norm;

-indicates, for the staff concerned, the professional qualifications and health and safety conditions at work required for the operation and maintenance of this subsystem, as well as for the implementation of the TSI;

- provision is made for specific cases for this TSI.

Lastly, this TSI also comprises the operating and maintenance requirements specific to its technical and geographical scope.

Railway Undertakings and Infrastructure Managers shall contribute by providing functional and technical information about the existing individual telematics applications for freight not later than six months after the entry into force of the Regulation.

The representative bodies from the railway sector acting on a European level shall establish a Strategic European Deployment Plan for the TSI according with the criteria specified in the Annex to the Regulation. They shall forward this strategic plan to the Member States and the Commission not later than one year after the entry into force of the Regulation.

Those provisions of Decision 2004/446/EC which concern the basic parameters of the trans-European conventional rail system shall no longer apply as from the date of the entry into force of this Regulation.

CONTENT: Directive 2001/16/EC obliges the EU to prepare technical specifications (TSIs) for the subsystem “noise”. The European Association for Railway Interoperability (AEIF) was mandated by the Commission to prepare such specifications and in doing so relied on the best available expert knowledge. The basic parameters for the subsystem “noise” were adopted in 2004 by Commission Decision 2004/446. This latter Decision, sets out the basic parameters of the noise, freight wagons and telematic applications for freight technical specifications for interoperability. In adopting this Act, however, the provisions concerning the basic parameters of the tans-European conventional rail system shall no longer apply to Decision 2004/446. In more specific terms, the TSI Noise is now adopted and refers to the trans-European conventional rail system as defined by Directive 2001/16, both in its Articles and in its Annexes. Under the terms of the Decision, Member States are expected to inform the EU of any agreements which contain requirements relating to noise emission limits. The types of agreements should include national agreements between the Member States and the railway undertakings, bi-lateral or multilateral agreements between railway undertakings, infrastructure managers or safety authorities and international agreements between one or more Member State and at least on third country or between railway undertakings of at least one Member State and at least one railway undertaking of a third country.

CONTENT : This Regulation sets out the technical specification for interoperability (TSI) relating to the ‘telematics applications for freight’ subsystem of the conventional rail system referred to in Article 6(1) of Directive 2001/16/EC. The purpose of this TSI is to ensure also that efficient interchange of information is at all times best adapted, with regard to quality and quantity, to changing requirements so that the transport process may remain as economically viable as possible and that freight transport on rail maintains its hold on the market against the intense competition it has to face. This means the building or upgrading of the trans-European conventional rail system for conventional rail transport and intermodal transport. The TSI telematic applications covers the applications for freight services and the management of connections with other modes of transport which means that it concentrates on the transport services of an RU in addition to the pure operation of trains. Safety aspects are only considered as far as the existence of data elements, e.g. wrong or not actual values, may have an impact on the safety operation of a train. The geographical scope of this TSI is the trans-European conventional rail system as described in Annex I to the Directive 2001/16/EC. But this TSI may also be applied to the complete freight transport rail network of the Member States of the EU, with the restriction that the requirements of this TSI are not mandatory for freight transport arriving from or going to a non-EU country. Content of this TSI: this TSI: - indicates its intended scope of the telematic applications subsystem for freight; - lays down the essential requirements for this subsystem and its interface vis-à-vis other subsystems; - establishes the functional and technical specifications to be met by the subsystem and its interfaces vis-à-vis other subsystems; - determines the interoperability constituents and interfaces covered by European specifications, including European standards, which are necessary to achieve interoperability within the trans-European conventional rail system; - states, in each case under consideration, the procedures for the assessment of conformity or suitability for use. This includes, in particular, the modules defined in Council Decision 93/465/EEC or, where appropriate, the specific procedures to be used to assess either the conformity to or the suitability for use of interoperability constituents and ‘EC’ verification of subsystems; - indicates the strategy for implementing the TSI. In particular it is necessary to specify the stages to be completed in order to make a gradual transition from the existing situation to the final situation in which compliance with the TSI shall be the norm; -indicates, for the staff concerned, the professional qualifications and health and safety conditions at work required for the operation and maintenance of this subsystem, as well as for the implementation of the TSI; - provision is made for specific cases for this TSI. Lastly, this TSI also comprises the operating and maintenance requirements specific to its technical and geographical scope. Railway Undertakings and Infrastructure Managers shall contribute by providing functional and technical information about the existing individual telematics applications for freight not later than six months after the entry into force of the Regulation. The representative bodies from the railway sector acting on a European level shall establish a Strategic European Deployment Plan for the TSI according with the criteria specified in the Annex to the Regulation. They shall forward this strategic plan to the Member States and the Commission not later than one year after the entry into force of the Regulation. Those provisions of Decision 2004/446/EC which concern the basic parameters of the trans-European conventional rail system shall no longer apply as from the date of the entry into force of this Regulation.

CONTENT: this legislative act establishes the “Technical Specification for Interoperability”, or TSI, for the control-command and signalling sub-system of the trans-European conventional rail system . The specifications of the new TSI are set out in Annex to this Decision. The purpose of the new TSI is to form a coherent implementing strategy for the design, construction, commissioning, upgrading, renewal and operation of the infrastructure and the rolling stock. A distinction is made between “renewal” and “maintenance”. Thus, the TSI will apply to renewals but not to maintenance related replacements although Member States are encouraged to apply the new TSI whenever possible. The Decision also foresees the establishment of a “Change Control Management” process which will update and revise the TSI where technological advances require it. The updating process will be transferred from the AEIF to the European Railway Agency which is established by Regulation 881/2004/EC. The Member States are required to notify the following items to the Commission and the other Member States within six months of this Decision being notified: - The list of applicable technical rules relating to “Open points”; - The conformity assessment and checking procedures. - The names of those bodies authorised to carry out conformity-assessment and checking procedures. The Member States will need to establish a national implementation plan for the TSI and forward it to both the Commission and the other Member States. On the basis of these national plans the Commission will prepare an EU master plan. The Member States must make every effort for the availability of an external Specific Transmission Module, or STM, for their legacy Class B command-and-control systems by 31 December 2007.

CONTENT: this legislative act establishes the “Technical Specification for Interoperability”, or TSI, for rolling stock – freight wagons’ subsystem of the trans-European conventional system . The specifications of the new TSI are set out in Annex to this Decision. The TSI will be fully applicable to the freight wagon rolling stock of the trans-European conventional rail system. Its specifications will apply to renewal but not to maintenance-related replacements. However, Member States are expected to apply the TSI to maintenance related replacements. Further, the putting into service of new, renewed or upgraded wagons must take full consideration of any impact they may have on the environment. In its current version the TSI does not deal fully with all aspects of interoperability. Those items which are not dealt with are classified as “Open Points” in Annex JJ of the TSI. The Member States are required to notify the following items to the Commission and the other Member States within six months of this Decision being notified: - The list of applicable technical rules relating to “Open points”; - The conformity assessment and checking procedures. - The names of those bodies authorised to carry out conformity-assessment and checking procedures. In additions, Member States will be obliged to notify: - national, bilateral or multilateral agreements between the Member States and railway undertakings or infrastructure managers, agreed either on a permanent or a temporary basis, and necessitated by the very specific or local nature of the intended transport service; - bilateral or multilateral agreements between railway undertakings, infrastructure managers or safety authorities which deliver significant levels of local or regional interoperability; - international agreements between one or more Member State and at least one third country or between railway undertakings or infrastructure managers and at least one railway undertaking or infrastructure manager of a third country which deliver significant levels of local or regional interoperability. Provisions set out in Decision 2004/446/EC and which concern the basic parameters of the trans-European conventional rail system will no longer apply once this Decision becomes applicable.

It has been prepared in accordance with Article 24 of Directive 96/48/EC. The report analyses the rate at which the inter-operability Directives have been implemented. These Directives have sought to open-up the rail transport market and to make the rail network capable of providing a seamless cross-border passenger and freight service. The Report also reviews the measures taken at both a national and a European level to fulfil the provisions of the Directives and their progress towards inter-operability. A further feature of this Report is its assessment of the Directive’s relationship with the “European Railway Agency”, which became operational in 2005. The Report finds that the high speed inter-operability directive is now well established and fully implemented (with the exception of Slovakia). E xtensive experience has been gained in the implementation of the TSIs, their conformity assessment and the progression of the high speed rail network. With regards to Slovakia, the Commission has now referred the case to the Court of Justice. The conventional rail interoperability directive expands the scope of the interoperable rail network and the first group of TSIs are expected to come into force by mid 2006. The cost benefit analysis of supporting the TSIs is a crucial activity which will lead to a better understanding of the TSIs full impact on the rail transport market. Member States should be encouraged to participate early in the development process of the TSI with the Agency. The report considers the benefits of merging certain TSIs for high speed and conventional railways in order to reduce the regulatory burden on operators and to allow the rail transport system to be viewed as a ‘total system’ thus potentially reducing overall costs. A merger of both interoperability directives is also being considered in the context of simplification and better regulation. The monitoring of the derogations granted against TSI is an important activity of the Committee, as the scope and quantity of derogations has a direct impact on the progress of interoperability. The following progress interoperability progress report will be undertaken by the European Rail Agency. The first of their reports will be made available in 2007. type: Follow-up document body: EC

CONTENT: this act updates and renews the 2004 Technical Specification for Interoperability or “TSI” relating to control and command and signalling subsystem of the High Speed rails system in order to take account of technical progress and experience gained. The new TSI is based on work conducted by the AEIF. At the same time the Decision corrects erroneous references in Annex A to the TSI laying down the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system (Council Decision 2006/679/EC. For a summary see above.) In summary, this Decision: - Adopts a TSI relating to the control and signalling subsystem of the trans-European High Speed railway. The TSI is set out in the Annex to this Decision. - It will apply to all new, upgraded or renewed rolling stock or lines of trans-European high speed rail systems. Member States must notify, within six months of notification the following to the European Commission: - a list of applicable technical rules which are considered “Open Points”; - a list of the subsystem signalling, radio and transmission matrix (Annex B); - a list of the conformity assessment and checking procedures; and - a list of the bodies appointed for carrying out conformity assessment. Member States must establish a national implementation plan of the TSI and forward this plan to the other Member States and the Commission. On the basis of these national plans the Commission will draft an EU Master Plan. - Annex A to the TSI “laying down the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system”, (Council Decision 2006/679/EC) will be replaced by Annex A to the high speed rail system TSI. This allows for an update of the 1529 mm track gauge locomotives and trains. REPEAL: Decision 2002/731/EC is repealed. Its provisions will continue to apply in relation to the maintenance of projects authorised in accordance with the TSI annexed to that Decision. It will also apply to projects for a new line and for the renewal or upgrading of an existing line which are at an advanced stage of development – or which are the subject of a contract at the date of notifying the present Decision. Member States are obliged to notify an exhaustive list of the sub-systems and interoperability constituents which continue to apply the 2002 TSI to the Commission.

It responds to Article 31 of the Railway Safety Directive , Article 24 of the high-speed Interoperability Directive and Article 28 of the conventional rail Interoperability Directive . Moreover, it builds on the findings of the first biennial report on the development of railway safety in the European Community issued by the European Railway Agency in 2008. To prepare for this report, the European Commission commissioned a study analysing the degree of implementation of rail interoperability and safety legislation and progress in the field, and carried out a public consultation. The results of the consultation are summarised in the annex to this report. It should be noted that recent amendments to the legal framework for railway safety and interoperability have not been considered in this report as they are still being transposed at national level (see COD/2006/0273 et COD/2006/0272 ). The main finding are as follows: Transposition by Member States : all Member States have notified the Commission of their national measures implementing the Railway Safety Directive, except for Luxembourg, against which infringement proceedings are still open. However, in several cases transposition has been delayed and did not meet the legal deadline specified in the Directive (30 April 2006). The next step is to check that all provisions of the Directive have been correctly implemented; this includes conformity checks and detailed analyses to verify, for example, the capacity of the national bodies to perform the tasks required by the Directives. These analyses are still in hand and it is therefore too early to draw final conclusions on this issue. However, some initial results are available on the notification of national safety rules and the setting up of national bodies. National safety rules and notification : almost 5000 national safety rules have been notified. On request of the Commission the Agency has examined these notifications and recommended asking for clarification or renotification of national safety rules by most Member States. As for the question of publishing the national safety rules, in 2009 the Agency is expected to propose ways to improve access. Setting up of national authorities and bodies : the role of the national safety authorities (NSA) is critical both in maintaining safety and in ensuring that safety is not a barrier to market opening when developing interoperability. Most of the NSAs were established in 2006 and 2007. At the end of 2008 there was only one Member State that had not yet established its NSA. Member States must also set up independent investigation bodies charged with investigating serious railway accidents. By April 2009, only one Member State had not yet set up its national investigation body (NIB). The Agency has established networks to facilitate cooperation and sharing of views and experience by these national bodies. Development and implementation of secondary legislation at European level : t he Railway Safety Directive provides for a large amount of secondary legislation to be adopted by the Commission and drafted by the Agency based on mandates issued by the Commission. In 2007 the first instrument was adopted: Commission Regulation (EC) No 653/2007 on the use of a common European format for safety certificates and application documents in accordance with Article 10 of Directive 2004/49/EC and on the validity of safety certificates delivered under Directive 2001/14/EC. Common safety methods for risk assessment and to assess achievement of safety targets were respectively adopted on 24 April 2009 and 5 June 2009 while further legislation is in preparation. Safety Certification : f urther information on the status of safety certification, and a proposed strategy for migration towards a single Community safety certificate, will be produced by the Agency in 2010 based on an evaluation of the safety certification procedures in the Member States. Safety Reporting : NSAs must publish annual reports giving information on the railway safety situation. The Agency uses these reports to continuously monitor the development of railway safety in the EU. Overall, initial figures confirm that railways are very safe for rail users, with fewer than 100 fatalities annually compared to about 40 000 on EU roads. Furthermore, the development of railway safety in the EU Member States can be regarded as very positive, as the number of passenger fatalities went down from around 400 in 1970 to only 58 in 2006. However, figures show that there is high representation of third parties in fatal railway accidents such as trespassers and level crossing users (together around 1 500 fatalities per year). Suicides constitute another particular feature of rail accidents: these fatalities are not reported as accidents and they are seldom subject to press reports. In 2006 they accounted for about 2 300, i.e. more than 60% of all fatalities. Implementation of the Interoperability Directives : a ll Member States have notified national measures implementing the Interoperability Directives 96/48/EC (High-Speed), Directive 2001/16/EC (Conventional Rail) and Directive 2004/50 (alignment of High-Speed and Conventional Rail Directives and extension of the scope). Main conclusions : the Commission considers that the progress made thanks to the Community regulatory framework for railway safety and interoperability should encourage further development of the internal rail market , helping the emergence of new businesses, the cutting of entry costs and, ultimately, the competitiveness of rail as compared to other modes of transport. The analyses carried out in this report show mixed results for the time being. 1) As for rail safety , statistics indicate that the railway system in the Community is safe and the organisational changes stemming from the Community framework not only had no negative impact on safety but are expected to raise safety levels in the short and medium terms. From the market perspective, safety requirements still impose significant entry barriers . These relate mainly to the cost and the duration of the procedures involved at national level, their disparity across Europe and the lack of transparency/predictability. Substantial progress in this field is expected, partly due to the harmonisation of safety certificates for railway undertakings and the introduction of Common Safety Methods , and partly due to the cross-acceptance of national rules when authorising the placing into service of rail vehicles. The success of these activities will depend on two conditions: the full establishment of the newly created bodies , especially national safety authorities (NSAs), operating at similar levels of competence and efficiency. This is necessary to create mutual trust between NSAs. The Commission will therefore continue to check that Community legislation has been correctly transposed as far as new structures and tools are concerned; the leading role of the European Railway Agency in gradually harmonising safety rules and procedures and progressively replacing them with common methods. This role may evolve even further in the future towards complementing or supplementing the activities of NSAs in the certification and authorisation processes; 2) The secondary legislation on interoperability is expected to be completed in 2010 as far as the TEN-T network is concerned. This is certainly a priority for the Commission, as no real interoperability can be achieved without technical specifications for interoperability (TSIs) for all sub-systems. Another priority for the Commission is to manage the transition from the old regime to the new regime created by the TSIs and the registers of infrastructure and rolling stock. Moreover, the increasing number of conformity certificates issued for sub-systems and the limited number of derogations indicate that, overall, the existing TSIs are being successfully applied. This also underlines the importance of Notified Bodies and their role in increasing competence and mutual trust. However, residual open points in TSIs and the limited geographical scope of the TSIs may hamper the future integration of the European rail system as they constitute obstacles to interoperability. Therefore it will be essential to close the open points and to extend the scope of TSIs in a reasonably short period of time. The Commission also notes that progress towards interoperability is a slow process . Because of the long lifetime of rail infrastructure and rolling stock and the need to keep investment costs for the sector at an acceptable level, radical changes towards harmonised solutions are not possible. That is why the Commission intends to concentrate efforts on implementing those technical specifications that will deliver significant benefits in the short and medium term, namely the CCS, TAF, TAP and OPE TSIs. Lastly, it will also be necessary for future revisions of TSIs to give a higher consideration to the principles developed under the strategy for simplifying the regulatory environment and to ensure the relevance, effectiveness and proportionality of the railway legislation. For example, more use of voluntary European standards will be considered. The Commission will continue to check how the legal framework for railway safety and interoperability is implemented in practice, ensuring that all the secondary legislation is introduced (mainly TSIs for conventional rail and common safety methods) and the new Directives are transposed. It then intends to prepare a Communication reviewing its policies on interoperability and the safety of the Community railway system. type: Follow-up document body: EC
