COMMISSION DECISION

of 30 November 2009

on the reference document referred to in Article 27(4) of Directive 2008/57/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the interoperability of the rail system within the Community

(notified under document C(2009) 8680)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2009/965/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Directive 2008/57/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 on the interoperability of the rail system within the Community (1), and in particular, Article 27(4) thereof,

Having regard to the recommendation of the European Railway Agency (No ERA/REC/XA/01-2009) of 17 April 2009,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 27(3) of Directive 2008/57/EC requires the European Railway Agency to draft a reference document cross-referencing all the national rules applied by the Member States for placing vehicles in service. This document must contain the national rules of each Member State for each of the parameters listed in Annex VII to Directive 2008/57/EC and specify the group referred to in Section 2 of that Annex to which these rules belong. These rules must comprise those notified under Article 17(3) of Directive 2008/57/EC, including those notified following adoption of TSIs (specific cases, open points, derogations) and those notified under Article 8 of Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2). The first version of the reference document is to be presented to the Commission no later than 1 January 2010.

(2)

In order to allow comparison and cross-referencing, in respect of a particular parameter, between the requirements contained within the TSIs and those contained in national rules, the list of parameters to be checked in conjunction with the placing in service of non-TSI conform vehicles, should, on the one hand, preserve compatibility with, and build upon existing agreements based on national rules and, on the other hand, reflect the TSIs. It is therefore necessary for the list of parameters to be at a level of detail significantly higher than that currently reflected in Section 1 of Annex VII to Directive 2008/57/EC. It is appropriate to adopt the detailed list of parameters set out in the Annex to this Decision as the basis for the reference document referred to in Article 27(4) of Directive 2008/57/EC.

(3)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established in accordance with Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The reference document referred to in Article 27(4) of Directive 2008/57/EC shall be drawn up on the basis of the list of parameters set out in the Annex to this Decision.

It shall also contain, for each Member State, some basic information on the national legal framework applicable to placing railway vehicles in service.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States and to the European Railway Agency, as represented by its Executive Director.

Done at Brussels, 30 November 2009.
