Path Coordination System (PCS)

The Path Coordination System (PCS) is an international path request coordination system for path applicants, e.g. Railway Undertakings (RUs), Infrastructure Managers (IMs) and Allocation Bodies (ABs). The internet-based application optimises international path coordination by ensuring that path ­requests and path offers are made in a harmonised way by all involved parties. Input for international path requests needs to be placed only once into one system – either into the domestic application or directly into PCS.

Common Components System (CCS)

The Common Components System consists of three different components. The Common Interface (CI) provides a graphical mapping layer that can be used easily both by IT and non-IT staff. Message exchange between railway companies has been standardised: it is based on common message formats or shared message formats agreed by two or more railway companies. The Central Reference File Database (CRD) is maintained through the process described on the UIC website and can be downloaded. The Central Location Ident Reference File consists of the Primary Location Code and the Subsidiary Location Code. The national location entities (mostly Infrastructure Managers) are responsible for the allocation of the Primary Location Code to railway locations. This is a prerequisite for the allocation of the Subsidiary Location Code by Railway Undertakings. The Certification Authority (CA) provides X-509 certificates to support secure communication between partners, along with message-based encryption and signature.
