COMMISSION DECISION

of 25 January 2012

on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystems of the trans-European rail system

(notified under document C(2012) 172)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2012/88/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 the second subparagraph of Article 6(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 2006/679/EC of 28 March 2006 concerning the technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system (2) laid down the technical specifications for interoperability (‘TSI’) relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system.

(2)

Commission Decision 2006/860/EC of 7 November 2006 concerning a technical specification for interoperability relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European high speed rail system (3) lays down the TSI relating to the control-command and signalling subsystem of the trans-European high-speed rail system.

(3)

The essential requirements for both the conventional and the high-speed networks must be identical, as must their functional and technical specifications, their interoperability constituents and interfaces, and the procedures for assessing the conformity or the suitability for use of the interoperability constituents or the ‘EC’ verification of their control-command and signalling subsystems.

(4)

The implementation strategies should remain specific to each type of network and the existing requirements for the conventional trans-European network and for the high-speed trans-European network should remain unchanged. The European railway agency (‘Agency’) was given a framework mandate to perform certain activities.

(5)

On 31 January 2011 the Agency gave its recommendation on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the subsystems ‘control-command and signalling’ of the trans-European rail system (4). This Decision is based on that recommendation.

(6)

In the interest of clarity, Decisions 2006/679/EC and 2006/860/EC should therefore be replaced by this Decision.

(7)

The changes introduced regarding safety requirements (Section 4.2.1 of Annex III) are based on the analysis that the text in the CCS TSIs in force leaves room for interpretations. The introduced changes have no negative impact in the overall safety level.

(8)

The fitting of ERTMS/ETCS should be mandatory in the case of new installations or upgrade of the train protection part of a CCS assembly for railway infrastructure projects benefiting from EU financial support. Such fitting should in principle be carried out in the frame of the EU funded project. In certain cases, it is however necessary to grant a derogation to this implementation rule. The scope of such derogation is limited to the implementation strategy of the ‘control-command and signalling TSI’.

(9)

The Agency has listed in the technical document ‘List of CCS Class B systems’ the national legacy control-command and signalling systems (‘Class B systems’). Those systems may still be requested on board locomotives and traction units to run on certain lines.

(10)

The Class B systems significantly hamper the interoperability of locomotives and traction units but play an important role in maintaining the high level of safety of the trans-European network. For this reason, it is important to avoid creating additional obstacles to interoperability by, for example, altering these national legacy systems or by introducing new systems.

(11)

To avoid creating additional obstacles to interoperability, Member States should ensure that the functionality of the legacy Class B systems and their interfaces remain as currently specified, except where modifications are needed to mitigate safety-related flaws in these systems. Member States should also ensure that systems not included in the list of Class B systems do not constitute additional barriers to interoperability.

(12)

The availability of the GSM-R frequencies is essential for safe and interoperable railway operations.

(13)

Decisions 2006/679/EC and 2006/860/EC should therefore be repealed.

(14)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

1.   The technical specification for interoperability (‘TSI’) relating to the ‘track-side control-command and signalling’ subsystem and ‘on-board control-command and signalling subsystems’ of the trans-European rail system, as set out in Annex III, is adopted.

2.   The TSI set out in Annex III to this Decision shall apply to the track-side control-command and signalling subsystem as described in point 2.3 and to the on-board control-command and signalling subsystem as described in point 2.4 of Annex II to Directive 2008/57/EC.

Article 2

1.   Member States shall ensure that, whenever a national protection control-command system is requested on board rolling stock to run on a given line or part of the trans-European network, this system is included in the list of Class B systems, having equal legal value as annexes to the TSI.

2.   Member States shall ensure that the functionality, performance and interfaces of the Class B systems remain as currently specified, except where modifications are needed to mitigate safety-related flaws in those systems.

Article 3

Each Member State shall notify to the other Member States and to the Commission, with regard to Class B systems and to those issues identified as open points in Appendix G to the TSI adopted by this Decision, within 6 months of the notification of this Decision, the following:

(a)

the list of applicable technical rules;

(b)

the conformity assessment and checking procedures to be used for ensuring that the applicable technical rules are indeed applied;

(c)

the bodies it appoints for carrying out those conformity-assessment and checking procedures.

If these elements have already been notified in the context of Decisions 2006/679/EC and 2006/860/EC this obligation is considered fulfilled.

Article 4

1.   The Commission may grant a derogation to the obligation laid down in Section 7.3.2.4 of Annex III concerning the mandatory equipment of lines with the European Train Control System (ETCS) in the context of EU funded projects (Section 7.3.2.4), when signalling is renewed on short (less than 150 km) and discontinuous sections of a line and provided that ETCS is installed before the earlier of these two dates:

5 years after the end of the project,

the time by which the section of the line is connected to another ETCS equipped line.

2.   The Member State concerned shall forward a file concerning the project to the Commission. This file shall contain an economic analysis showing that there is a substantial economic and/or technical advantage in putting ERTMS into service at the earlier of the two dates mentioned in paragraph 1 rather than during the course of the EU-funded project.

3.   The Commission shall examine the file sent to it and the measures proposed by the Member State and shall notify the results of its examination to the Committee referred to in Article 29 of Directive 2008/57/EC. If a derogation is granted, the Member State shall ensure that ERTMS is installed before the earlier of the two dates mentioned in paragraph 1.

Article 5

Commission Decision 2011/291/EU of 26 April 2011 concerning a technical specification for interoperability relating to the rolling stock sub-system – ‘Locomotives and Passenger rolling stock’ of the trans-European conventional rail system (5) is amended as follows:

(1)

the second indent under the headline ‘Legislative measures in force’ in Section 1.4 ‘Referenced documents’ of the Annex is replaced by ‘Control-Command and Signalling TSI’;

(2)

Section 4.2.3.3.1 is replaced by Annex I to this Decision;

(3)

Table 10 in Section 4.3.4 is replaced by Annex II to this Decision.

Article 6

The ERA technical document ERTMS/ETCS System Requirement Specification (SRS), document reference ‘subset-026’ in version 3.2.0, dated 22 December 2010, can be used as a basis to tender the equipment of lines with ETCS and to carry out tests, but before the entry into force of the so-called baseline 3, the fitment of trains with baseline 3 cannot be requested.

Article 7

Decisions 2006/679/EC and 2006/860/EC are hereby repealed. Their provisions shall however continue to apply in relation to maintenance of projects authorised in accordance with the TSIs annexed to those Decisions and, unless the applicant requests to apply this Decision, to projects for new, renewed or upgraded subsystems which are at an advanced stage of development or the subject of a contract in course of performance at the date of notification of the present Decision.

Article 8

This Decision shall apply 6 months after its notification to the Member States.

Article 9

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 25 January 2012.

1.   INTRODUCTION

1.1.   Technical scope

This TSI concerns the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem and the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem.

1.2.   Geographical scope

The geographical scope of this TSI is the trans-European rail system, i.e. the trans-European conventional and high-speed rail systems as set out in points 1 and 2 of Annex I to Directive 2008/57/EC (Railway Interoperability Directive).

1.3.   Content of this TSI

In accordance with Article 5(3) of the Railway Interoperability Directive, this TSI:

1.

indicates its intended scope — Chapter 2 (Subsystem Definition and Scope);

2.

lays down essential requirements for the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems and their interfaces vis-à-vis other subsystems — Chapter 3 (The Essential Requirements of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems);

3.

lays down the functional and technical specifications to be met by the Subsystems and their interfaces with other subsystems — Chapter 4 (Characterisation of the Subsystem);

4.

determines the interoperability constituents and interfaces which must be covered by European specifications, including European standards, and which are necessary to achieve interoperability within the trans-European rail system — Chapter 5 (Interoperability Constituents);

5.

states, in each case under consideration, which procedures are to be used to assess the conformity or the suitability for use of the interoperability constituents and for the ‘EC’ verification of the subsystems — Chapter 6 (Assessing the Conformity and/or Suitability For Use of the Constituents and Verifying the Subsystems);

6.

indicates the strategy for implementing this TSI — Chapter 7 (Implementing the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems TSI);

7.

indicates the professional competences and health and safety conditions at work required for the staff operating and maintaining these subsystems and implementing the TSI — Chapter 4 (Characterisation of the Subsystem).

In accordance with Article 5(5) of the Railway Interoperability Directive, provisions for specific cases are indicated in Chapter 7 (Implementing the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems TSI).

This TSI also sets out, in Chapter 4 (Characterisation of the Subsystems), the operating and maintenance rules which specifically apply to the scope indicated in paragraphs 1.1 and 1.2 above.

2.   SUBSYSTEM DEFINITION AND SCOPE

2.1.   Introduction

The Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems are defined in Annex II to the Railway Interoperability Directive as ‘all the equipment required to ensure safety and to command and control movements of trains authorised to travel on the network’.

The features of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems are:

1.

the functions that are essential for the safe control of railway traffic, and that are essential for its operation, including those required for degraded modes (1);

2.

the interfaces;

3.

the level of performance required to meet the essential requirements.

2.2.   Scope

The Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems TSI specifies only those requirements which are necessary to assure the interoperability of the trans-European rail system and compliance with the essential requirements.

The Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems include the following parts:

1.

train protection;

2.

radio communication;

3.

train detection.

The Class A train protection system is ERTMS/ETCS whilst the Class A radio system is GSM-R.

For Class A train detection this TSI specifies only the requirements for the interface with other subsystems.

Class B systems are a limited set of train protection legacy control-command and signalling systems that were in use before 20 April 2001. The list of Class B systems is established in the European Railway Agency technical document ‘List of CCS Class B systems’, ERA/TD/2011-11, version 1.0.

The requirements for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem are specified in relation to Class A radio mobiles and train protection.

The requirements for the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem are specified in relation to:

1.

the Class A radio network;

2.

Class A train protection;

3.

the interface requirements for train detection systems, to ensure their compatibility with rolling stock.

2.3.   Application levels (ERTMS/ETCS)

The interfaces specified by this TSI define the means of data transmission to, and (where appropriate) from trains. The ERTMS/ETCS specifications referenced by this TSI provide application levels from which a track-side implementation may choose the means of transmission that meet its requirements.

This TSI defines the requirements for all application levels.

A train equipped with Class A on-board train protection for a given application level must be able to operate on that level and any lower one. As a consequence:

a train equipped with Class A on-board train protection for level 2 must be able to operate on that level and on level 1 lines,

a train equipped with Class A on-board train protection for level 1 need not be equipped with a GSM-R data radio but must already implement all level 2 functions so as to ensure that the mere connection of a GSM-R data radio at a later stage will ensure it is equipped for level 2.

3.   THE ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CONTROL-COMMAND AND SIGNALLING SUBSYSTEMS

3.1.   General

The Railway Interoperability Directive requires that the subsystems and the interoperability constituents including interfaces meet the essential requirements set out in general terms in Annex III to the Directive.

The essential requirements are:

1.

Safety;

2.

Reliability and Availability;

3.

Health;

4.

Environmental Protection;

5.

Technical compatibility.

The essential requirements for Class A systems are described below.

The requirements for Class B systems are the responsibility of the relevant Member State.

3.2.   Specific Aspects of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems

3.2.1.   Safety

Every project to which this specification is applied shall take the measures necessary to ensure that the level of risk of an incident occurring within the scope of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems, is not higher than the objective for the service. For this purpose Commission Regulation (EC) No 352/2009 of 24 April 2009 on the adoption of a common safety method on risk evaluation and assessment as referred to in Article 6(3)(a) of Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) (Common Safety Method) applies.

To ensure that the measures taken to achieve safety do not jeopardise interoperability, the requirements of the basic parameter defined in Section 4.2.1 (Control-Command and Signalling safety characteristics relevant to interoperability) shall be respected.

For the ERTMS/ETCS Class A system the safety objective is apportioned between the Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Track-side Subsystems. The detailed requirements are specified in the basic parameter defined in Section 4.2.1 (Control-Command and Signalling safety characteristics relevant to interoperability). This safety requirement must be met together with the availability requirements as defined in Section 3.2.2 (Reliability and Availability).

3.2.2.   Reliability and Availability

For the Class A system, the reliability and availability objectives are apportioned between the Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Track-side Subsystems.

4.   CHARACTERISATION OF THE SUBSYSTEMS

4.1.   Introduction

In accordance with the relevant essential requirements, the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems are characterised by the following basic parameters:

1.

15.

Visibility of track-side Control-Command and Signalling objects (Section 4.2.15)

16.

Environmental conditions (Sections 4.2.16)

All requirements in Section 4.2 (Functional and technical specifications of the Subsystems) to meeting these basic parameters shall be applied to the Class A system.

Requirements for Class B systems and for STMs (which enable the Class A On-board system to operate on Class B infrastructure) are the responsibility of the appropriate Member State.

This TSI is based on the principles of enabling the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem to be compatible with TSI compliant Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystems. To achieve this goal:

1.

functions, interfaces and performances of the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem are standardised, ensuring that every train will react in a predictable way to data received from track-side;

2.

for the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem, track-to-train and train-to-track communication are fully standardised in this TSI. The specifications referenced in the sections below allow Control-Command and Signalling track-side functionality to be applied in a flexible way, so that it can be optimally integrated into the railway system. This flexibility shall be exploited without limiting the movement of TSI-compliant on-board subsystems.

The Control-Command and Signalling functions are classified in categories indicating whether they are optional (O) or mandatory (M). The categories are defined in Annex A 4.1a for ERTMS/ETCS and Annex A 4.1b for GSM-R and these texts also state how the functions are classified.

Annex A 4.1c provides the Glossary of ERTMS/ETCS terms and definitions, which are used in the specifications referred to in Annex A.

According to Section 2.2 (Scope) the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems include three parts.

The following table indicates which basic parameters are relevant for each subsystem and for each part.

4.4.   Operating rules

The rules for operating a railway service with ERTMS/ETCS are specified in the Traffic Operation and Management TSI.

4.5.   Maintenance rules

The maintenance rules of the subsystems covered by this TSI shall ensure that the values quoted in the basic parameters indicated in Chapter 4 are maintained within the required limits throughout the lifetime of the subsystems. However, during preventative or corrective maintenance, the subsystem may not be able to respect the values quoted in the basic parameters; the maintenance rules shall ensure that safety is not prejudiced during these activities.

The entity in charge of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems shall set up maintenance rules to achieve the above objectives. To assist with the preparation of these rules, the following requirements shall be respected.

4.5.1.   Responsibility of the manufacturer of equipment

The manufacturer of equipment incorporated in the subsystem shall specify:

1.

all maintenance requirements and procedures (including health monitoring, diagnosis of events, test methods and tools and also the required professional competence) necessary for achieving essential requirements and values quoted in the mandatory requirements of this TSI throughout the equipment life-cycle (transport and storage before installation, normal operation, failures, repair work, checking and maintenance, decommissioning, etc.);

2.

the health and safety risks that may affect the public and the maintenance staff;

3.

the conditions for first line maintenance, i.e. the definition of Line Replaceable Units (LRUs), the definition of approved compatible versions of hardware and software, the procedures for replacing failed LRUs, and the conditions for storing LRUs and for repairing failed LRUs;

4.

the checks to be carried out if equipment is subject to exceptional stress (e.g. adverse environmental conditions or abnormal shocks);

5.

the checks to be carried out when maintaining equipment other than Control-Command and Signalling equipment and which influences the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems (e.g. changing the wheel diameter).

4.5.2.   Responsibility of the applicant for subsystem verification

The applicant shall:

1.

ensure that the maintenance requirements as described in Section 4.5.1 (Responsibility of the Manufacturer of Equipment) are defined for all components within the scope of this TSI regardless of whether or not they are interoperability constituents;

2.

complete the above requirements taking into account the risks arising from interactions between different components of the subsystem and interfaces to other subsystems.

4.6.   Professional competences

The manufacturers of the equipment and of the subsystem shall provide information sufficient to define the professional competences required for the installation, final inspection and maintenance of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems. See Section 4.5 (Maintenance rules).

4.7.   Health and safety conditions

Care shall be taken to ensure health and safety for maintenance and operations staff, in accordance with EU regulations and the national regulations that are compatible with the European legislation.

Manufacturers shall indicate the risks for health and safety that arise from using and maintaining their equipment and subsystems. See Section 4.4 (Operating rules) and Section 4.5 (Maintenance rules).

4.8.   Registers

5.   INTEROPERABILITY CONSTITUENTS

5.1.   Definition

According to Article 2(f) of the Railway Interoperability Directive, interoperability constituents are ‘any elementary component, group of components, subassembly or complete assembly of equipment incorporated or intended to be incorporated into a subsystem, upon which the interoperability of the rail system depends either directly or indirectly. The concept of a constituent covers both tangible objects and intangible objects such as software.’

5.2.   List of interoperability constituents

5.2.1.   Basic interoperability constituents

The basic interoperability constituents in the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems are defined in:

1.

Table 5.1.a for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem;

2.

Table 5.2.a for the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem.

5.2.2.   Grouping of interoperability constituents

The functions of basic interoperability constituents may be combined to form a group. This group is then defined by those functions and by its remaining external interfaces. If a group is formed in this way, it shall be considered as an interoperability constituent.

1.

Table 5.1.b lists the groups of interoperability constituents of the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem.

2.

Table 5.2.b lists the groups of interoperability constituents of the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem.

5.3.   Constituents’ performance and specifications

6.   ASSESSING THE CONFORMITY AND/OR SUITABILITY FOR USE OF THE CONSTITUENTS AND VERIFYING THE SUBSYSTEMS

6.1.   Introduction

6.1.1.   General principles

Fulfilment of the essential requirements set out in Chapter 3 of this TSI shall be ensured through compliance with the basic parameters specified in Chapter 4.

This compliance shall be demonstrated by:

1.

assessing the conformity of the interoperability constituents specified in Chapter 5 (see Section 6.2);

2.

verifying the subsystems (see Section 6.3).

In certain cases, however, some of the essential requirements may be met by national rules, because of:

1.

the use of Class B systems;

2.

open points in the TSI;

3.

derogations pursuant to Article 9 of the Railway Interoperability Directive;

4.

specific cases described in Section 7.2.9.

In such cases, assessment of conformity with those rules shall be carried out under the responsibility of the Member States concerned according to notified procedures.

6.1.2.   Principles for testing ERTMS/ETCS and GSM-R

A Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem covered by an ‘EC’ declaration of verification should be able to run on every Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem covered by an ‘EC’ Declaration of verification, under the conditions specified in this TSI, with no additional verifications.

Achievement of this goal is facilitated by:

1.

rules for the design and installation of the Control-Command and Signalling On-board and the Track-side subsystems;

2.

test specifications to prove that the Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Track-side Subsystems comply with the requirements of this TSI and are mutually compatible.

To make the conformity assessment of ERTMS/ETCS and GSM-R equipment more effective and to help achieve the goal mentioned above, each Member State shall make available to the Commission the operational test scenarios for checking the ERTMS/ETCS and GSM-R part of the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem and its interaction with the corresponding part of the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem. The test scenarios in question:

1.

shall be consistent with the specifications referenced in this TSI and provide a technical description of functions and performances (e.g. reaction times) where these are relevant for the interaction between on-board and track-side subsystems;

2.

shall be submitted in a standard format. See Annex A 4.2.2.c;

3.

shall, unless otherwise specified in Annex A 4.2.2.c, cover at least the start of mission, the transition between levels, transition between modes that may be used on the line, the main identified degraded situations, the sending of emergency messages and any other relevant aspects specific to the line.

The European Railway Agency:

1.

shall make a preliminary publication of the operational test scenarios, allowing all interested parties to comment on the consistency of the test scenarios with the specifications referenced in this TSI and their impact on other implementations or developments. The period for comments shall be defined with each publication and shall not exceed 6 months;

2.

if the comments are negative, shall coordinate the efforts of the parties involved, in order to find an agreement, e.g. by changing the operational test scenarios;

3.

shall progressively build and make publicly available a database of test scenarios that have successfully passed the step described above and representing the situations which occur in different implementations;

4.

shall use the abovementioned data base to assess whether further mandatory test specifications are needed and whether it is necessary to draw up additional engineering rules for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Track-side subsystems.

6.2.   Interoperability constituents

6.2.1.   Assessment procedures for Control-Command and Signalling Interoperability Constituents

Before placing on the market an interoperability constituent and/or groups of interoperability constituents the manufacturer or his authorised representative established within the European Union shall draw up an ‘EC’ declaration of conformity in accordance with Article 13(1) and Annex IV to the Railway Interoperability Directive.

The assessment procedure shall be carried out using one of the modules specified in Section 6.2.2 (Modules for Control-Command and Signalling Interoperability Constituents).

An ‘EC’ declaration of suitability for use is not required for Control-Command and Signalling interoperability constituents, because they have to fully comply with all the relevant basic parameters. This compliance is demonstrated by the ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity and is sufficient for placing them on the market (5).

6.2.2.   Modules for Control-Command and Signalling Interoperability Constituents

For assessing interoperability constituents within the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems, the manufacturer or his authorised representative established within the European Union, may choose:

1.

either the type-examination procedure (Module CB) for the design and development phase in combination with the production quality management system procedure (Module CD) for the production phase; or

2.

the type-examination procedure (Module CB) for the design and development phase in combination with the product verification procedure (Module CF); or

3.

the full quality management system with design examination procedure (Module CH1).

In addition, for checking the SIM card Interoperability Constituent, the manufacturer or his representative may choose module CA.

The modules are described in detail in Commission Decision 2010/713/EU of 9 November 2010 on modules for the procedures for assessment of conformity, suitability for use and ‘EC’ verification to be used in the technical specifications for interoperability adopted under Directive 2008/57/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (6).

The following clarifications apply to the use of some of the modules:

1.

with reference to Chapter 2 of the ‘Module CB’, ‘EC’-type examination must be carried out through a combination of production type and design type;

2.

with reference to Chapter 3 of the ‘Module CF’ (product verification) statistical verification is not allowed, i.e. all interoperability constituents must be individually examined.

6.2.3.   Assessment requirements

Independently of the selected module:

1.

the requirements stated in Section 6.2.4.1 of this TSI shall be respected for the ‘On-board ERTMS/ETCS’ interoperability constituent;

2.

the activities shown in Table 6.1 shall be carried out when assessing the conformity of an interoperability constituent or a group of interoperability constituents as defined in Chapter 5 of this TSI. All verifications shall be carried out by reference to the applicable table in Chapter 5 and the basic parameters indicated there.

6.2.4.   Special issues

6.2.4.1.   The on-board ERTMS/ETCS

Particular attention shall be given to assessing the conformity of the on-board ERTMS/ETCS interoperability constituent, since it is complex and plays a key role in achieving interoperability.

Regardless of whether module CB or CH1 is chosen, the Notified Body shall check that a specimen of the interoperability constituent has passed the full set of mandatory test sequences referenced in Section 4.2.2 (on-board ERTMS/ETCS functionality) and that these tests were carried out in a laboratory accredited to carry out this type of tests in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 765/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 July 2008 setting out the requirements for accreditation and market surveillance relating to the marketing of products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 339/93 (7).

In addition, to increase confidence that the on-board ERTMS/ETCS can be correctly operated with different track-side applications, it is recommended that the on-board ERTMS/ETCS be tested using scenarios from the data base managed by the Agency and which are not part of the mandatory test specifications; see Section 6.1.2 (Principles for testing ERTMS/ETCS and GSM-R). The documentation accompanying the certificate shall indicate the database scenarios against which the interoperability constituent has been checked.

6.2.4.2.   The Specific Transmission Module (STM)

Each Member State shall be responsible for verifying that STMs conform to its national requirements.

Verification of the STM interface to the on-board ERTMS/ETCS requires a conformity assessment carried out by a Notified Body.

6.2.4.3.   Content of the ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity

The ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity specified in Annex IV to the Railway Interoperability Directive shall include the following details concerning the interoperability constituent:

1.

which optional and additional functions are implemented;

2.

the applicable environmental conditions.

6.3.   Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems

6.3.1.   Assessment procedures for Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems

This chapter deals with the ‘EC’ declaration of verification for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem and the ‘EC’ declaration of verification for the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem.

At the request of the applicant the Notified Body shall carry an ‘EC’ verification of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board or Track-side Subsystem in accordance with Annex VI to the Railway Interoperability Directive.

The applicant shall draw up the ‘EC’ declaration of verification for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board or Track-side Subsystem in accordance with Article 18(1) and Annex V to the Railway Interoperability Directive.

The content of the ‘EC’ declaration of verification shall conform to Annex V to the Railway Interoperability Directive.

The assessment procedure shall be carried out by using one of the modules as specified in Section 6.3.2 (Modules for Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems).

The ‘EC’ declarations of verification for a Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem and of a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem, together with the certificates of conformity, shall be deemed sufficient to ensure that the subsystems are compatible under the conditions specified in this TSI.

6.3.2.   Modules for Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems

All modules indicated below are specified in the Decision 2010/713/EU.

6.3.2.1.   On-board Subsystem

For verifying the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem, the applicant may choose either:

1.

the type-examination procedure (Module SB) for the design and development phase in combination with the production quality management system procedure (Module SD) for the production phase; or

2.

the type-examination procedure (Module SB) for the design and development phase in combination with the product verification procedure (Module SF); or

3.

the full quality management system with design examination procedure (Module SH1).

6.3.2.2.   Track-side Subsystem

For verifying the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem, the applicant may choose either:

1.

With reference to Section 4.2 of Module SB (type-examination), design review is requested.

With reference to Section 4.2 of Module SH1 (full quality management system with design examination), a type test is required.

6.3.3.   Assessment requirements for an On-board Subsystem

Table 6.2 shows the checks that must be carried out when verifying a Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem and the basic parameters that must be respected.

Independently of the module chosen:

1.

verification shall demonstrate that the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem complies with basic parameters when it is integrated into the vehicle;

2.

the functionality and performances of interoperability constituents already covered by their EC Declaration of conformity do not require additional verifications.

Reports of test runs.

Note: Indicate in the certificate which conditions have been tested, which standards have been applied and the criteria for considering the tests terminated

6.3.4.   Assessment requirements for a Track-side Subsystem

The purpose of assessments carried out within the scope of this TSI is to verify that the equipment complies with the requirements stated in Chapter 4.

However, for the design of the ERTMS/ETCS part of the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem, application-specific information is needed; This should include:

1.

line characteristics such as gradients, distances, positions of route elements and Eurobalises/Euroloops, locations to be protected, etc;

2.

the signalling data and rules to be handled by the ERTMS/ETCS system.

This TSI does not cover checks to assess whether the application-specific information is correct:

Regardless of the module chosen:

1.

Table 6.3 shows the checks that must be carried out to verify a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem and the basic parameters that must be respected;

2.

functionality and performances that have already been checked at the level of the interoperability constituents do not require additional verification.

6.4.   Provisions for partial conformity

6.4.1.   Introduction

Pursuant to Article 18(4) of the Railway Interoperability Directive, ‘the Notified Body may issue Intermediate Statement Verifications (ISVs) to cover certain stages of the verification procedure or certain parts of the subsystem’.

As pointed out in Section 2.2 (Scope) of this TSI, the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems include three parts, which are specified in Section 4.1 (Introduction).

Section 6.4.2 deals with the verification of these parts of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems.

Section 6.4.3 deals with the verification of partial conformity of Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems when there are restricted conditions of use of its interoperability constituent(s).

6.4.2.   Assessment of parts of Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems

Assessing whether a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side or On-board Subsystem complies with the requirements of this TSI is a process that may be performed in successive steps – one for each of the three parts. At each step, the assessor checks only whether that particular part complies with the TSI requirements.

Regardless of which module is chosen, the Notified Body shall verify that:

1.

the TSI requirements for the part in question have been respected;

2.

the TSI requirements already assessed are not prejudiced.

Functions already assessed and unchanged and which are not affected by this step do not need to be checked again.

6.4.3.   Partial conformity of Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems due to restricted conditions of use of its interoperability constituent(s)

A partial certificate of conformity for an interoperability constituent can be issued even if some function, interface or performance has not been implemented, provided that:

1.

The non-implemented function, interface or performance is not required for integrating the interoperability constituent into a subsystem because of specific conditions of use, for example (9):

(a)

the on-board ERTMS/ETCS interface to STM if the interoperability constituent is intended for installation on vehicles where no external STM is needed;

(b)

the RBC interface to other RBCs, if the RBC is intended for use in an application where no neighbouring RBCs are planned.

2.

The certificate indicates which functions, interfaces or performance are not implemented and states the corresponding restrictions on the use of the interoperability constituent. This information will make it possible to identify the conditions under which the interoperability constituent can be used and the restrictions that will apply to the interoperability of a subsystem incorporating it.

In any event, the conditions for issuing such certificates with restrictions shall be coordinated between the Notified Bodies and the Agency in a working group set up pursuant to Article 21a(5) of Regulation (EC) No 881/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 establishing a European Railway Agency (Agency Regulation) (10).

When the interoperability constituent is integrated into a Control-Command and Signalling On-board or Track-side Subsystem, if the missing functions, interfaces, or performances do not allow to assess whether the subsystem fully complies with the requirements of this TSI, only an Intermediate Statement of Verification may be issued. It shall indicate which requirements have been assessed and shall state the corresponding restrictions on the use of the subsystem and its compatibility with other subsystems.

7.   IMPLEMENTING THE TSI CONTROL-COMMAND AND SIGNALLING

7.1.   Introduction

This chapter outlines the strategy and the associated technical measures for implementing the TSI, and in particular the conditions for migrating to Class A systems.

Account must be taken of the fact that the implementation of a TSI occasionally has to be coordinated with the implementation of other TSIs.

7.2.   Generally applicable rules

7.2.1.   Upgrading or renewing the Control-Command Track-side Subsystem or parts of it

Upgrading or renewing the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem may concern any or all of the following:

1.

Train protection

2.

Radio communication

3.

Train detection

These different parts of the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem may therefore be upgraded or renewed separately if interoperability is not jeopardised. The work involved will concern:

1.

GSM-R functions and interfaces

2.

ERTMS/ETCS functions and interfaces

3.

Train detection system compatibility with rolling stock

See Chapter 4.1 (Introduction) for the definition of the basic parameters for each part.

7.2.2.   Legacy systems

Member States shall ensure that the functionality of the legacy systems and their interfaces remains unchanged, except where modifications are needed to mitigate safety-related flaws in these systems.

7.2.3.   Availability of Specific Transmission Modules

If lines that fall within the scope of this TSI are not equipped with Class A train protection systems, the Member State shall make every effort to ensure the availability of an external Specific Transmission Module (STM) for its legacy Class B train protection system or systems.

In this context, due regard is to be given to ensuring an open market for STMs under fair commercial conditions. If, for technical or commercial reasons (11) the availability of an STM cannot be ensured, the Member State concerned shall inform the Committee of the underlying reasons for the problem and of the mitigation measures that it intends to put into place in order to allow operators — and in particular foreign operators — access to its infrastructure.

7.2.4.   Additional Class B equipment on a line equipped with Class A

On a line equipped with ERTMS/ETCS and/or GSM-R, additional Class B equipment may be installed in order to allow the operation of rolling stock not compatible with Class A during the migration phase. Class B equipment may be used on-board as a fallback arrangement for a Class A system. However an infrastructure manager is not entitled to require the interoperable trains running on such a line to have Class B systems on board.

In addition, track-side shall support transitions between Class A and Class B without imposing on the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem requirements additional to those specified in this TSI.

7.2.5.   Rolling stock with Class A and Class B equipment

Rolling stock may be equipped with both Class A and Class B systems to enable operation on several lines.

The Member State concerned may restrict the use of an on-board Class B system on lines where the corresponding system is not installed track-side.

When running on a line which is equipped with both Class A and Class B systems, a train that is also equipped with both Class A and Class B systems may use the Class B systems as a fallback arrangement. This cannot be a requirement for interoperability.

The Class B train protection systems may be implemented:

1.

using an STM operating via the standard interface (‘external STM’); or

2.

integrated within the ERTMS/ETCS equipment or connected via a non-standard interface; or

3.

independently from the ERTMS/ETCS equipment, for example via a system that enables switching between equipment. The Railway Undertaking must then ensure that the transitions between Class A and Class B train protection are carried out in conformity with the requirements of this TSI and with the national rules for the Class B system.

7.2.6.   Conditions for mandatory and optional functions

Depending on the characteristics of the Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Sub-system and its interfaces with other sub-systems, some track-side functionalities not classified as mandatory may necessarily have to be implemented in certain applications to comply with the essential requirements.

The track-side implementation of national or optional-functions must not prevent the use of that infrastructure by a train that complies only with the mandatory requirements of the On-board Class A system except as required for the following on-board optional functions:

an ETCS Level 3 Track-side application requires train integrity supervision on board,

an ETCS Level 1 Track-side application with in-fill requires corresponding in-fill functionality on board if the release speed is set to zero for safety reasons (e.g. protection of danger points),

when ETCS requires data transmission by radio, the data transmission services of GSM-R must fulfil the ETCS data transmission requirements,

an on-board assembly, which incorporates a KER STM, may make it necessary to implement the K-interface.

7.2.7.   GSM-R specific implementation rules

7.2.7.1.   Track-side installations

The fitting of GSM-R is mandatory when:

1.

installing for the first time the radio part of a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem;

2.

upgrading the radio part of a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem already in service in such a way that it changes the functions or the performance of the subsystem. This does not include the modifications deemed necessary to mitigate safety-related defects in the legacy installation.

7.2.7.2.   On-board installations

The fitting of GSM-R in rolling stock intended for use on a line including at least one section equipped with Class A interfaces (even if superimposed to a Class B system), is mandatory when:

1.

installing for the first time the radio part of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem;

2.

upgrading the radio part of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem already in service in such a way that it changes the functions or the performance of the subsystem. This does not apply to modifications deemed necessary to mitigate safety-related defects in the legacy installation.

7.2.8.   Train detection systems specific implementation rules

In the context of this TSI, train detection system means the equipment installed track-side, which detects the presence or absence of vehicles either on an entire line of route or on a local section of it.

Track-side systems (e.g. interlocking or level crossing control systems) which use information from detection equipment are not considered parts of the train detection system.

This TSI specifies the requirements for the interface with rolling stock only to the extent necessary to ensure compatibility between TSI-compliant rolling stock and the infrastructure.

Implementing a train detection system that is compliant with the requirements of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems TSI can be done independently of the installation of ERTMS/ETCS or GSM-R, but can be dependent on the Class B signalling systems or on special requirements, e.g. for level crossing equipment.

The requirements of this TSI relating to train detection systems shall be respected when:

1.

upgrading the train detection system;

2.

renewing the train detection system, provided that respecting the requirements of this TSI does not imply unwanted modifications or upgrades of other track-side or on-board systems;

3.

renewing the train detection system, where this is required by the upgrade or renewal of track-side systems that use information from the train detection system;

4.

removing Class B train protection systems (where the train detection and train protection systems are integrated).

In the migration phase care shall be taken to ensure that installing a TSI compliant train detection system has a minimal negative impact on the existing non-TSI compliant rolling stock.

To achieve this, it is recommended that the Infrastructure Manager selects a TSI compliant train detection system that, at the same time, is compatible with the non-TSI compliant rolling stock already operating on that infrastructure.

7.2.9.   Specific cases

7.2.9.1.   Introduction

The following special provisions are permitted in the specific cases below.

7.3.   Rules for ERTMS

7.3.1.   The ERTMS European Deployment Plan

This section outlines the strategy (ERTMS European Deployment Plan) for implementing the TSI. It specifies the stages to be completed in order to make a gradual transition from the existing situation to the final situation in which compliance with the TSIs shall be the norm.

The ERTMS European Deployment Plan does not apply to lines located in the territory of a Member State when its rail network is separated or isolated by the sea or separated as a result of special geographical conditions or of different track gauge from the rail network of the rest of the Community.

7.3.2.   ERTMS Track-side Implementation

The aim of the ERTMS European Deployment Plan is to ensure that locomotives, railcars and other railway vehicles equipped with ERTMS can gradually have access to an increasing number of lines, ports, terminals and marshalling yards without needing national equipment in addition to ERTMS.

This does not mean that existing Class B systems have to be removed from the lines included in the plan. However, by the date specified in the implementation plan, locomotives, railcars and other railway vehicles equipped with ERTMS must be given access to lines included in the deployment plan without requiring those vehicles to be equipped with a Class B system.

Terminal areas such as ports, or specific lines in a port, which are not equipped with a Class B system fulfil the requirements set out in Section 7.3.2.2 provided railway vehicles are given access to these terminal areas without any requirement as regards equipment with an Automatic Train Protection system being imposed.

A line consisting of two or more tracks shall be considered equipped as soon as two of the tracks are equipped so as to allow traffic in both directions. When there is more than one line on a section of a corridor, at least one of the lines on this section must be equipped and the whole corridor shall be considered equipped as soon as at least one line is equipped over the whole length of the corridor.

7.3.2.1.   Corridors

The six corridors described in Section 7.3.4 shall be equipped with ERTMS according to the timetable indicated in that section (12).

7.3.2.2.   Connection to the main European ports, marshalling yards, freight terminals and freight transport areas

The ports, marshalling yards, freight terminals and freight transport areas listed in 7.3.5 shall be linked to at least one of the six corridors specified in 7.3.4 at the date and under the conditions specified in 7.3.5.

7.3.2.3.   High-speed network

It is mandatory to fit ERTMS/ETCS track-side when:

1.

installing for the first time the train protection part of a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem (with or without a Class B system); or

2.

upgrading the existing train protection part of a Control-Command and Signalling Track-side Subsystem, where this would change the functions, performance and/or interoperability-relevant interfaces (air gaps) of the existing legacy system. This does not apply to modifications deemed necessary to mitigate safety-related defects in the legacy installation.

It is recommended that ERTMS/ETCS be installed whenever the infrastructure or energy sub-system of a section of line already in service is to be upgraded, renewed or maintained, provided the installation of ERTMS/ETCS on that section of line represents less than 10 % of the total upgrade/renewal/maintenance investment.

7.3.2.4.   EU-funded projects

Without prejudice to Sections 7.3.2.1, 7.3.2.2 and 7.3.2.3, in the case of railway infrastructure projects receiving financial support from European Regional Development Funds and/or Cohesion Funds (Council Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 of 11 July 2006 laying down general provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund and the Cohesion Fund (13)) and/or the TEN-T funds (Decision No 1692/96/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (14)) the fitting of ERTMS/ETCS is mandatory when:

1.

installing for the first time the train protection part of a Control-Command and Signalling Subsystem; or

2.

upgrading the train protection part of a Control-Command and Signalling Subsystem already in service, where this changes the functions or the performance of the subsystem.

7.3.2.5.   Notification

For each corridor section described in 7.3.4, Member States shall either notify to the Commission a detailed timeline for equipping that corridor section with ERTMS or confirm that the corridor section is already equipped. The information shall be notified to the Commission no later than 3 years before the deadline for equipping that corridor section, as specified in 7.3.4.

For each port, marshalling yard, freight terminal or freight transport area listed in 7.3.5, Member States shall notify the specific lines to be used to connect it with one of the corridors listed in 7.3.4. This information shall be notified to the Commission no later than 3 years before the date specified in 7.3.5 and shall indicate the deadline for equipping this port, marshalling yard, freight terminal or freight transport area. If necessary, the Commission may request adjustments, in particular to ensure consistency between equipped lines at the borders. Member States shall either notify to the Commission a detailed timeline for equipping these specific lines with ERTMS or confirm that these specific lines are already equipped. This information shall be notified to the Commission no later than 3 years before the date specified in 7.3.5 and shall indicate the deadline for equipping this port, marshalling yard, freight terminal or freight transport area.

The detailed timelines shall in particular indicate the date by which the tender for equipping of the line will be concluded, the procedures put in place in order to ensure interoperability with the neighbouring countries on the corridor and the main milestones relating to the project. Every 12 months, Member States shall inform the Commission of the progress made in equipping these lines sending an updated timeline.

7.3.2.6.   Delays

When a Member State reasonably expects delays in fulfilling the deadlines laid down in this Decision, it shall immediately inform the Commission. It shall send the Commission a file containing a technical description of the project and an up-to-date implementation plan. The file shall also explain the reasons for the delay and shall indicate the corrective measures the Member State has taken.

A deadline extension of no more than 3 years can be granted to a Member State when the delay is due to causes beyond the Member State’s reasonable control such as failure of suppliers or problems regarding the authorisation process due to the absence of appropriate test vehicles. Such an extension can be advocated by a Member State only when the following conditions are fulfilled:

1.

the notifications, if needed, referred to in Section 7.3.2.5 were received in time and were comprehensive;

2.

the file referred to in Section 7.3.2.6, first paragraph, contains clear evidence that the causes for the delay were beyond the Member State’s control;

3.

a competent authority is responsible for coordinating on-board and track-side suppliers and for integrating and testing of products;

4.

appropriate use has been made of existing laboratories;

5.

evidence is given that appropriate measures have been taken to minimise the additional delay.

The Commission shall examine the file sent to it and the measures proposed by the Member State and shall notify the result of its examination to the committee referred to in Article 29 of Directive 2008/57/EC.

7.3.3.   ERTMS – On-board implementation

New locomotives, new railcars and other new railway vehicles able to run without traction equipped with a driving cab, ordered after 1 January 2012 or put into service after 1 January 2015, shall be equipped with ERTMS.

This requirement does not apply to new shunting locomotives or to other new locomotives, new railcars and other new railway vehicles equipped with a driving cab, if they are designed exclusively for national service or regional border crossing service. Member States may however introduce additional requirements at national level, in particular with a view to:

1.

allowing only ERTMS equipped locomotives to access ERTMS-equipped lines, so that existing national systems can be decommissioned;

2.

requesting that new shunting locomotives and/or other new railway vehicles equipped with a driving cab, even if designed exclusively for national service or regional border crossing service, be equipped with ERTMS.

7.3.3.1.   High-speed network

It is mandatory to fit ERTMS/ETCS on board when:

1.

installing any new train protection part of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem; or

2.

upgrading any existing train protection part of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem, where this would change the functions, performances and/or interoperability-relevant interfaces of the existing legacy system. This does not apply to modifications deemed necessary to mitigate safety related defects in the legacy system.
