Common Structure of Network Statements
European Directive 2012/34 describes the obligation for each rail Infrastructure Manager to publish a Network Statement. These Network Statements present information on rail networks, in particular on commercial and legal access conditions. They aim to provide all Applicants wishing to operate services on a given rail network with a single source of up-to-date, relevant information on a fair and non-discriminatory basis.
RailNetEurope has been promoting the harmonisation and publication of user-friendly, customer-oriented Network Statements – designed to enable you to find the information you need very quickly. To this end, the Members of RailNetEurope have agreed a common structure and an implementation guide for drafting Network Statements in accordance with Article 27 of Directive 2012/34/EU.
