International & European Legislation

International and European legislation

The LM WG is in charge of the expert monitoring of European legislation as follows:

  • Directive 2012/34 (‘Recast’) and its revision in Directive 2016/2370
  • Fourth Railway Package
  • Implementing and Delegated Acts on the Recast (especially Annex VII with regard to TTR project)
  • Regulation No 913/2010
  • Revision of the Convention concerning International Carriage by Rail (COTIF) by the OTIF (Intergovernmental Organisation for International Carriage by Rail). Here the COTIF’s Annex E on the use of infrastructure (CUI) was particularly important.

In addition, the LM WG exchanges and analyses information on new developments in the fields of national and international legislation, such as IM’s first experiences with RU claims resulting from the passenger rights Regulation 1371/2007.
