RNE Network Statement Common Structure
Article 27 of Directive 2012/34/EU describes the obligation for each rail Infrastructure Manager to publish a Network Statement. These Network Statements are key to market access, they present all the information that Applicants need to know in order to place requests for infrastructure capacity, in particular the commercial, technical and legal access conditions. They aim to provide 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.
RNE has been promoting the harmonisation and publication of user-friendly, customer-oriented Network Statements. To this end, the IMs and ABs under the RNE umbrella have agreed on a common structure and an implementation guide, which enables Applicants to find the same information in the same place in each Network Statement. The RNE Network Statement Common Structure is in line with the requirements of the Directive. Furthermore, it is revised every year by the RNE Network Statement Working Group and is adjusted accordingly when needed.
RNE Network Statement Glossary
The RNE Network Statement Working Group has developed an easy-to-use glossary of terms related to Network Statements. Its aim is to facilitate the production, the harmonisation of wording and the comparability of the English-language Network Statements. The definitions in this glossary are written in a clear language using as little technical or legal jargon as possible. They provide practical guidance both to IMs, ABs and Applicants. As the railway sector is undergoing rapid change in Europe, this glossary is a dynamic document, updated and expanded every year.
Please note the Legal Disclaimer, which stresses that the available material is for information purposes only and that RNE does not accept any liabilities. By using the glossary, you agree to the terms of the Legal Disclaimer.
Comments from readers and requests for further definitions are very welcome. Please send your observations or requests to the RNE Joint Office: email@example.com
