COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION

of 4 October 2011

on the European register of authorised types of railway vehicles

(notified under document C(2011) 6974)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2011/665/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

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 34(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 34(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC, the European Railway Agency (the Agency) should set up and keep a register of types of vehicles authorised by the Member States for placing in service on the Union rail network.

(2)

For some existing vehicles it is not possible to establish a correspondence to a type of vehicle that is authorised in accordance with Article 26 of Directive 2008/57/EC. A possibility to include the technical characteristics of all the vehicles in service in one single register may, however, be beneficial for the railway sector.

(3)

Restrictions on how the vehicle may be used as mentioned in Article 33(2)(e) of Directive 2008/57/EC are in most cases subject to a specific code. Those restriction codes should be harmonised. The use of national restriction codes should be limited to those restrictions that reflect particular characteristics of the existing railway system of a Member State and are unlikely to be applied with the same meaning in other Member States. The Agency should keep up-to-date the list of harmonised restriction codes and of national codes and publish them on its web site.

(4)

In accordance with Article 34(3) of Directive 2008/57/EC, when an authorisation of type is granted, modified, suspended or withdrawn in a Member State, national safety authorities should inform the Agency so that the latter may update the register. The register should include types of vehicle authorised in accordance with Article 26 of Directive 2008/57/EC. Therefore, when informing the Agency, national safety authorities should indicate which parameters of the given type were checked according to the notified national rules. This indication should be established in accordance with the reference document referred to in Article 27(4) of Directive 2008/57/EC.

(5)

The European Railway Agency submitted its recommendation ERA/REC/07-2010/INT to the Commission on 20 December 2010.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee set up under Article 29 of Directive 2008/57/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Subject matter

This Decision establishes the specification for the European register of authorised types of vehicles referred to in Article 34 of Directive 2008/57/EC.

Article 2

Specification of the European register of authorised types of vehicles

1.   The Agency shall develop, operate and maintain the European register of authorised types of vehicles on the basis of the specification set out in Annexes I and II.

2.   The European register of authorised types of vehicles (ERATV) shall contain data on the types of vehicle authorised by the Member States pursuant to Article 26 of Directive 2008/57/EC.

3.   Types of vehicle authorised by a Member State before 19 July 2010 for which one or more vehicles have been authorised in one or more Member States pursuant to Article 22 or 24 of Directive 2008/57/EC after 19 July 2010 are deemed to fall under provisions of Article 26 of Directive 2008/57/EC and shall be registered in ERATV. In this case, data to be recorded may be limited to the parameters that have been verified during the type authorisation process.

4.   The types of vehicles which can be registered voluntarily are those set out in Section 1 of Annex I.

5.   The structure of the number that each type of vehicle receives shall be as set out in Annex III.

6.   The register shall be operational by 31 December 2012. In the meantime the Agency shall publish the information relating to the authorised types of vehicles on its website.

Article 3

Information to be sent by national safety authorities

1.   The Member States shall make sure that the national safety authorities provide the information on the type authorisations they have granted, as set out in Annex II.

2.   The national safety authorities shall provide the information referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article in accordance with the rules laid down in Section 5.2 of Annex I.

3.   The national safety authorities shall submit the information by using the standard web-based electronic form with the relevant fields filled in.

Article 4

Restriction codes

1.   Harmonised restriction codes shall be applicable in all the Member States.

The list of harmonised restriction codes for the whole of the Union rail system shall be kept up-to-date by the Agency and published on its web site.

If a national safety authority considers that a new code needs to be added to the list of harmonised restriction codes, it shall request the Agency to evaluate the inclusion of this new code.

The Agency shall evaluate the request, in consultation with other national safety authorities. If appropriate, the Agency shall include a new restriction code in the list. Prior to the publication of the modified list, the Agency shall communicate it to the Commission together with the change request and its evaluation.

The Commission shall keep the Member States informed through the committee established in accordance with Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC.

2.   The Agency shall keep up-to-date the list of national restriction codes. The use of national restriction codes shall be limited to those restrictions that reflect particular characteristics of the existing railway system of a Member State and are unlikely to be applied with the same meaning in other Member States.

For types of restrictions not indicated in the list referred to in paragraph 1, the national safety authority shall request the Agency the inclusion of a new code in the list of national restriction codes. The Agency shall evaluate the request, in consultation with other national safety authorities. If appropriate the Agency shall include a new restriction code in the list. Prior to the publication of the modified list, the Agency shall communicate it to the Commission together with the change request and its evaluation.

The Commission shall keep the Member States informed through the committee established in accordance with Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC.

(1)

submission of data for the register by a national safety authority to the Agency including:

(a)

data related to granting an authorisation for a new type of vehicle (in this case the national safety authority shall provide the full set of data as set out in Annex II);

(b)

data related to granting an authorisation for a type of vehicle previously registered in ERATV (in this case the national safety authority shall only provide data related to the authorisation itself, i.e. fields in Section 3 of the list set out in Annex II);

(c)

data related to modification of an existing authorisation (in this case the national safety authority shall only provide data related to the fields that need to be modified; this may not include modification of data related to the characteristics of the vehicle);

(d)

data related to suspension of an existing authorisation (in this case the national safety authority shall only provide the date of suspension);

(e)

data related to reactivation of an existing authorisation (in this case the national safety authority shall only provide data related to the fields that need to be modified), distinguishing between

reactivation without modification of data,

reactivation with modification of data (these data may not be related to the characteristics of the vehicle).

(f)

data related to withdrawal of an authorisation;

(g)

data related to correction of an error.

(2)

sending of requests for data clarification and/or correction by the Agency to a national safety authority;

(3)

sending of answers by a national safety authority to the requests of clarification and/or correction done by the Agency.

The national safety authority shall submit the data for updating the register electronically by means of a web based application and using the standard web based electronic form with the relevant fields filled in as set out in Annex II.

The Agency shall check the data submitted by the national safety authority regarding their compliance with this specification, and either validate them or request a clarification.

If the Agency considers that the data submitted by the national safety authority are not in compliance with this specification, the Agency shall send the national safety authority a request for correction or clarification of the submitted data.

Upon each update of data regarding a type of vehicle the system shall generate a confirmation message, which shall be sent by e-mail to the users of the national safety authority that submitted the data, to the national safety authority of all other Member States where the type is authorised and to the Agency.

5.2.   Submission of data by national safety authority

5.2.1.   Granting an authorisation to a new type of vehicle

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of any authorisation of a new type of vehicle within 20 working days following the issue of the authorisation.

The Agency shall check the information submitted by the national safety authority and within 20 working days following the receipt of this information either validate it and assign a type of vehicle number as set out in Annex III or request its correction or clarification. In particular, in order to prevent an unintended duplication of types in ERATV, the Agency shall check, as far as the data available in ERATV allows, that this type has not been registered before by another Member State.

After validation of the information submitted by the national safety authority, the Agency shall assign the new type of vehicle its number. The rules for assigning the type of vehicle number are set out in Annex III.

5.2.2.   Granting an authorisation to a type of vehicle previously registered in ERATV

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of any authorisation of a type of vehicle already registered in ERATV (such as a type authorised by another Member State) within 20 working days following the issue of the authorisation.

The Agency shall check the information submitted by the national safety authority and, within 10 working days following the receipt of this information, shall either validate it or request its correction or clarification.

After validation of the information submitted by the national safety authority, the Agency shall complement the data related to this type of vehicle by the data related to the authorisation in the Member State of the national safety authority that granted this authorisation.

5.2.3.   Modification on an existing authorisation

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of any modification to an existing authorisation for a type of vehicle within 20 working days following the issue of the modification to the authorisation.

The Agency shall check the information submitted by the national safety authority and, within 10 working days following the receipt of this information, shall either validate it or request its correction or clarification. In particular, the Agency shall check that the requested changes actually consist of a modification of an authorisation of an existing type (e.g. amendment of conditions of the authorisation, amendments of the type examination certificate) and do not constitute a new type of vehicle.

After validation of the information submitted by the national safety authority, the Agency shall publish the information.

5.2.4.   Suspension

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of any suspension of an existing authorisation for a type of vehicle within 5 working days following the issue of the suspension of the authorisation.

The Agency shall check the information submitted by the national safety authority and, within 5 working days following the receipt of this information, shall either validate it or request its correction or clarification.

5.2.5.   Reactivation without modification

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of a reactivation of an authorisation for a type of vehicle previously suspended within 20 working days following the issue of the reactivation of the authorisation. The national safety authority shall confirm that the original authorisation is reactivated without any modifications.

The Agency shall check the information submitted by the national safety authority and, within 10 working days following the receipt of this information, shall either validate it or request its correction or clarification.

5.2.6.   Reactivation with modification

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of a reactivation of an authorisation for a type of vehicle previously suspended within 20 working days following the issue of the reactivation of the authorisation. The national safety authority shall indicate that the reactivation is accompanied by a modification of the original authorisation. The national safety authority shall submit information regarding this modification.

The process indicated in clause 5.2.3 above for modification of an authorisation shall apply.

5.2.7.   Withdrawal

The national safety authority shall inform the Agency of any withdrawal of an existing authorisation for a type of vehicle within 5 working days following the withdrawal of the authorisation.

The Agency shall check the information submitted by the national safety authority and, within 5 working days following the receipt of this information, shall either validate it or request its correction or clarification.

In the cases where an authorisation has a validity term, the IT system shall automatically change the status of the authorisation to ‘expired’ according to the validity term indicated by the relevant national safety authority.

5.2.8.   Modification of an authorisation which may lead to a modification of a registered type of vehicle

Before requesting a modification of an authorisation which may lead to a modification of a registered type of vehicle, the national safety authority shall coordinate with national safety authorities who have granted authorisation for this registered type, and in particular the authority who has registered the type in ERATV.

5.3.   Entry or modification of data by the Agency

Normally, the Agency shall not introduce any data into the register. The data shall be submitted by the national safety authority and the role of the Agency consists of validation and publication only.

In exceptional circumstances, such as technical impossibility of following the normal procedure, the Agency may, following a request from a national safety authority, enter or modify data in ERATV. In this case, the national safety authority that requested the entry or modification of data shall confirm the data entered or modified by the Agency and the Agency shall duly document the process. The timescales for entering data in ERATV as indicated in Section 5.2 shall apply.

5.4.   Publication of data by the Agency

The Agency shall make publicly available the data that has been validated.

5.5.   Error handling in submitted data

ERATV shall allow correcting errors in the recorded data. In the cases when an error has been corrected, ERATV shall indicate the date of correction.

5.6.   Possible searches and reports

ERATV shall allow the following reports:

(1)

For a national safety authority and the Agency:

information as indicated in Annex II submitted by any national safety authority and not validated by the Agency for any type of vehicle for which the authorisation is active, suspended or withdrawn (including expired authorisations) as far as this information is kept in historical records,

any of the reports available to public.

(2)

For the public:

information as indicated in Annex II submitted by any national safety authority and validated by the Agency for any type of vehicle for which the authorisation is active, suspended or withdrawn (including expired authorisations) as far as this information is kept in historical records.

ERATV shall allow the public to perform searches at least by the following criteria and any combination of them:

by type code,

by type name or part of it,

by manufacturer’s name or part of it,

by vehicle category/subcategory,

by TSI(s) the type is in conformity with,

by Member State or combination of Member States where the type of vehicle is authorised,

by status of the authorisation,

by any of the technical characteristics.

Where appropriate the search criteria shall allow indicating a range for a technical characteristic.

5.7.   Historical records

ERATV shall retain the complete historical record of all the modifications, including correction of errors, requests for clarifications and answers, related to a registered type of vehicle for 10 years from the date of withdrawal of the authorisation in all the Member States and for 10 years from the date of withdrawal of the registration from any NVR of the last vehicle of this type, whatever occurs later.

5.8.   Automatic notification of changes

Following a modification, suspension, reactivation or withdrawal of an authorisation of a vehicle type, the IT system shall send the national safety authority of any Member State where the vehicle types is authorised an automatic e-mail informing about the change.

Field 2 (digits from 3 to 5) is assigned according to the family to which the type of vehicle belongs. For new families (i.e. families not yet registered in ERATV) digits are progressively incremented by one unit each time an application for registration of a vehicle type belonging to a new family is received by the Agency.

Field 3 (digits from 6 to 9) is a progressive number incremented by one unit each time an application for registration of a vehicle type belonging to a given family is received by the Agency.

Field 4 (digit 10) is a check digit determined in the following manner (Luhn algorithm or modulus 10):

the digits in the even positions of the basic number (fields from 1 to 9 counting from the right) are taken at their own decimal value,

the digits in the odd positions of the basic number (counting from the right) are multiplied by 2,

the sum formed by the digits in even position and by all the digits which constitute the partial products obtained from the odd positions is then established,

the units digit of this sum is retained,

the complement required to bring the units digit to 10 forms the check-digit; should this units digit be nought, then the check-digit will also be nought.

Examples of determining the check digit:

1 —

Let the basic number be

Sum: 6 + 3 + 1 + 6 + 4 + 8 + 7 + 1 + 8 + 6 + 2 = 52

The units digit of this sum is 2.

The check-digit number will therefore be 8 and the basic number thus becomes the registration number 33 844 7961 — 8.

The check-digit number will therefore be 0 and the basic number thus becomes the registration number 31 513 3204 — 0.

If the type examination certificate or design examination certificate covers more than one version of the vehicle type, each of these versions shall be identified by an incremental three-digit number.
