COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2016/919

of 27 May 2016

on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the ‘control-command and signalling’ subsystems of the rail system in the European Union

(Text with EEA relevance)

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 2012/88/EU (2) as amended by Commission Decisions 2012/696/EU (3) and (EU) 2015/14 (4) laid down the technical specification for interoperability (TSI) relating to the ‘control-command and signalling’ (CCS) subsystems.

(2)

Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 881/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5) requires the European Railway Agency (the Agency) to ensure that TSIs are adapted to technical progress, market trends and social requirements and to propose to the Commission the amendments to the TSIs which it considers necessary.

(3)

On 10 December 2015, the Agency issued a recommendation relating to the CCS subsystems (ERA-REC-123-2015/REC). This Regulation is based on that recommendation.

(4)

In accordance with Article 5(6) of Directive 2008/57/EC, technical aspects which are not covered by a TSI should be identified as ‘open points’ governed by national rules applicable in each Member State. Since there are no new open points in this Regulation, the national rules containing the conditions to be complied with for verifying interoperability pursuant to Article 17(2) of Directive 2008/57/EC, and the conformity assessment and verification procedures needed to apply those national rules, should already have been sent to the other Member States and the Commission.

(5)

Class B systems significantly hamper the interoperability of locomotives and traction units but are necessary to ensure safe operations where Class A systems are not implemented. It is therefore important to avoid creating additional obstacles to interoperability by, for example, altering these Class B systems or by introducing new systems.

(6)

A transparent plan for European Train Control System (ETCS) implementation and decommissioning of Class B systems should be required as it is an essential element to achieve the objectives of the Single European Railway Area. This is of particular importance when the relevant specific transmission module (STM) is not available on the market.

(7)

In order to make testing principles more transparent and prepare the grounds for further harmonisation, it is necessary to lay down a requirement to publish engineering rules and the operational test scenarios.

(8)

Since the implementation of provisions in point 6.1.2.3 of the Annex related to the transparent management of information on verification of trackside ETCS and GSM-R requires effective cooperation of Infrastructure Managers, the Agency should establish suitable collaboration measures to collect information and define common templates to facilitate information-sharing, addressing issues of confidentiality and intellectual property rights.

(9)

Even a successful certification process cannot always exclude that, when an on-board CCS subsystem interacts with a trackside CCS subsystem, one of the subsystems repeatedly fails to function or perform as intended under certain conditions. This may be due to deficiencies in the specifications, different interpretations, design errors or equipment being installed incorrectly. A more coordinated way to perform compatibility tests should be introduced in order to help operators to take appropriate decisions.

(10)

In order to adapt to the needs of the rail sector, a new version of the ETCS (Release 2 of Baseline 3) should be introduced. This version is fully backwards-compatible as demonstrated in the report ‘baseline compatibility assessment’, published by the Agency, showing the compatibility checks carried out by the Agency and the sector for the ETCS Baseline 3 (Release 2 and Maintenance Release 1) and the ETCS Baseline 2 set out in the Annex of this Regulation.

(11)

The Commission should make eligible in the next CEF work programme with an ERTMS priority, actions aiming at mitigating possible incompatibilities or shortcomings of existing Baseline-2-compliant trackside implementations with on-board equipment compliant with Baseline 3.

(12)

Considering the fact that European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) is a complex software-based system and taking into account the change control management system, set up and managed by the Agency, collecting the feedback from the implementations of products and systems and logging the findings in the database of change requests, the Commission should request periodically to the Agency to report an assessment of the criticality of findings in the change requests database, to register critical errors in the list of TSI deficiencies according to Article 7 of Directive 2008/57/EC and to provide technical opinions to correct these errors.

(13)

Trackside and on-board investments should be protected by guaranteeing backward compatibility and stability of the ERTMS specifications as indicated in the Agency report on ‘ERTMS Longer Term Perspective’ (ERA-REP-150).

(14)

The Agency should publish as early as possible a technical document specifying additional information to be displayed in the driver-machine interface in order to improve the drivers’ ergonomics.

(15)

Article 47 of Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013 (6) provides for the adoption of the work plan of the ERTMS European Coordinator. The work plan will set out the implementation rules for ETCS trackside installations. Until that work plan is applicable, the ERTMS European Deployment Plan set out in Decision 2012/88/EU should continue to be applied.

(16)

Commission Decision 2012/88/EU should therefore be repealed.

(17)

The ‘rolling stock — locomotives and passenger rolling stock’ subsystem and the ‘trackside control-command and signalling’ and ‘on-board control-command and signalling’ subsystems share common interfaces. Therefore, Commission Regulation (EU) No 1302/2014 (7) should be amended to take into account the modifications introduced by this Regulation.

(18)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 8

Class B systems

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 9

EU-funded projects

1.   ETCS shall be installed in railway infrastructure projects receiving financial support from European funds when:

(1)

installing the train protection part of a CCS subsystem for the first time; or

(2)

upgrading the train protection part of a CCS subsystem already in service, where upgrading changes the functions or the performance of the subsystem.

2.   The Commission may grant a derogation from the obligation laid down in the paragraphs above 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 date on which the section of the line is connected to another ETCS equipped line.

3.   The Member State concerned shall send the Commission a file with an economic analysis of the project 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 the previous paragraph rather than during the course of the EU-funded project.

4.   The Commission shall examine the file and the measures proposed by the Member State and shall inform the committee referred to in Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC of its findings. If the Commission grants a derogation, the Member State shall ensure that ERTMS is installed before the earlier of the two dates mentioned in paragraph 2.

5.   This derogation shall not prevent application of points 7.3.2.1, 7.3.2.2 and 7.3.2.3 of Decision 2012/88/EU,

Article 10

Error corrections

If errors that do not allow the system to provide a normal service are detected the Agency shall publish as early as possible the respective solutions to correct them as well as the evaluation of their impact in the compatibility and stability of the existing ERTMS deployment. Within one year of the date of application of this Regulation, the Agency shall send to the Commission a technical opinion on the state of the findings logged in the ERTMS change request database. The Commission shall analyse the technical opinion, assisted by the committee referred to in Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC. As set out in the second paragraph of Article 7 of Directive 2008/57/EC, if these errors do not justify immediate revision, the Commission may recommend that the technical opinion be used pending the review of the TSI.

Article 11

1.   INTRODUCTION

1.1.   Technical scope

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

This TSI is applicable to control-command and signalling trackside Subsystems of the rail network defined in the point 1.2 (Geographical scope) of this TSI and to the control-command and signalling on-board subsystems of vehicles which are (or are intended to be) operated on it. These vehicles are of one of the following types (as defined in Annex I points 1.2 and 2.2 of Directive 2008/57/EC):

(1)

self-propelling thermal or electric trains;

(2)

thermal or electric traction units;

(3)

passenger carriages, if equipped with a driving cab;

(4)

mobile railway infrastructure construction and maintenance equipment, if equipped with a driving cab and intended to be used in transport mode on its own wheels.

1.2.   Geographical scope

The geographical scope of this TSI is the network of the whole rail system, composed of:

(1)

the trans-European conventional rail system network as described in Annex I point 1.1 of Directive 2008/57/EC;

(2)

the trans-European high-speed rail system network as described in Annex I point 2.1 of Directive 2008/57/EC;

(3)

other parts of the network of the rail system in the Union, following the extension of scope as described in Annex I point 4 of Directive 2008/57/EC;

and excludes the cases referred to in Article 1(3) of Directive 2008/57/EC.

The TSI shall apply to networks with 1 435 mm, 1 520 mm, 1 524 mm, 1 600 mm and 1 668 mm track gauges. However, it shall not apply to short border crossing lines with 1 520 mm track gauges that are connected to the network of third countries.

1.3.   Content of this TSI

In accordance with Article 5(3) of Directive 2008/57/EC, this TSI:

(1)

2.   SUBSYSTEM DEFINITION AND SCOPE

2.1.   Introduction

The Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems are defined in Annex II of Directive 2008/57/EC 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 Union rail system and compliance with the essential requirements.

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

(1)

train protection;

(2)

voice radio communication;

(3)

data radio communication;

(4)

train detection.

The Class A train protection system is ETCS (2) 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 for the trans-European rail system network are a limited set of train protection legacy systems that were in use in the trans- European rail network before 20 April 2001.

Class B systems for other parts of the network of the rail system in the European Union are a limited set of train protection legacy systems that were in use in that networks before 1 July 2015.

The list of Class B systems is established in the European Railway Agency technical documents ‘List of CCS Class B systems, ERA/TD/2011-11, version 3.0’.

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 Trackside 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 (ETCS)

The interfaces specified by this TSI define the means of data transmission to, and (where appropriate) from trains. The ETCS specifications referenced by this TSI provide application levels from which a trackside 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:

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 ETCS Data Only Radio but must already implement all level 2 and level 3 functions so as to ensure that:

the connection of a GSM-R ETCS Data Only Radio at a later stage will ensure it is equipped for level 2,

the connection of a GSM-R ETCS Data Only Radio and of train integrity detection at a later stage will ensure it is equipped for level 3.

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

3.1.   General

Directive 2008/57/EC 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)

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 the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 402/2013 (3), as referred to in Article 6(3)(a) of Directive 2004/49/EC (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 point 4.2.1 (Control-Command and Signalling safety characteristics relevant to interoperability) shall be respected.

For the ETCS Class A system the safety objective is apportioned between the Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Trackside Subsystems. The detailed requirements are specified in the basic parameter defined in point 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 Point 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 Trackside Subsystems. The detailed requirements are specified in the basic parameter defined in point 4.2.1 (Control-Command and Signalling safety characteristics relevant to interoperability).

The level of risk shall be monitored as constituents of the subsystem age and wear. The requirements for maintenance stated in point 4.5 shall be respected.

3.2.3.   Health

Technical compatibility includes the functions, interfaces and performances required to achieve interoperability.

The requirements of technical compatibility are subdivided in the following three categories:

(1)

The first category sets out the general engineering requirements for interoperability namely environmental conditions, internal electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) within the railway boundaries, and installation. These compatibility requirements are defined in this chapter.

(2)

The second category describes how the Control Command and Signalling Subsystems have to be applied technically and what functions they have to perform to ensure interoperability. This category is defined in Chapter 4.

(3)

The third category describes how the Control Command and Signalling Subsystems have to be operated in order that interoperability is achieved. This category is defined in Chapter 4.

3.2.5.1.   Engineering Compatibility

3.2.5.1.1   Physical environmental conditions

3.2.5.1.2   Railway Internal Electromagnetic Compatibility

In accordance with Union legislation and with national legislation that is compatible with the Union legislation, the Control Command and Signalling equipment shall neither interfere with nor be interfered with by other control-command and signalling equipment or other subsystems.

The basic parameter related for electromagnetic compatibility between rolling stock and control-command and signalling trackside equipment is described in point 4.2.11 (Electromagnetic Compatibility).

3.2.5.2.   Control-Command and Signalling Compatibility

Chapter 4 defines the requirements for the interoperability of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems.

4.1.2.   Overview of the requirements

All requirements in point 4.2 (Functional and technical specifications of the Subsystems) related to 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 Trackside 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 trackside;

(2)

for the Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystem, track-to-train and train-to-track communication are fully standardised in this TSI. The specifications referenced in the points below allow Control-Command and Signalling trackside 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 or mandatory. The categories are defined in the specifications referred to in Annex A and these texts also state how the functions are classified.

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

4.1.3.   Parts of Control-command and Signalling Subsystems

4.2.   Functional and technical specifications of the Subsystems

4.2.1.   Control-Command and Signalling safety characteristics relevant to interoperability

This basic parameter describes the requirements for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem and Trackside subsystem with reference to point 3.2.1 (Safety) and point 3.2.2 (Availability and Reliability).

In order to achieve interoperability, when implementing Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Trackside subsystems the following provisions shall be respected:

(1)

The design, implementation and use of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board or Trackside subsystem shall not export any requirements:

(a)

across the interface between Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Trackside subsystems in addition to the requirements specified in this TSI;

(b)

to any other subsystem in addition to the requirements specified in the corresponding TSIs.

(2)

The requirements set out in points 4.2.1.1 and 4.2.1.2 below shall be respected.

4.2.1.1.   Safety

The Control-Command and Signalling On-board and Trackside subsystems shall respect the requirements for ETCS equipment and installations stated in this TSI.

For the hazard ‘exceeding speed and/or distance limits advised to ETCS’ the tolerable rate (THR) is 10– 9 h– 1 for random failures, for on-board ETCS and for trackside ETCS. See Annex A 4.2.1 a.

To achieve interoperability, the on-board ETCS shall fully respect all requirements specified in Annex A 4.2.1. Nevertheless, less stringent safety requirements are acceptable for trackside ETCS provided that, in combination with TSI-compliant Control-Command and Signalling On-board subsystems, the safety level for the service is met.

4.2.1.2.   Availability/Reliability

This point refers to the occurrence of failure modes not causing safety hazards but creating degraded situations, the management of which could decrease the overall safety of the system.

In the context of this parameter, ‘failure’ means the termination of the ability of an item to perform a required function with the required performance and ‘failure mode’ means the effect by which the failure is observed.

To ensure that the relevant infrastructure managers and railway undertaking are given all the information they need to define appropriate procedures for managing degraded situations, the technical file accompanying the EC declaration of verification for an on-board or trackside CCS subsystem shall contain the calculated availability/reliability values related to failure modes having an impact on the capability of the CCS subsystem to supervise the safe movement of one or more vehicles or to establish radio voice communication between traffic control and the train drivers.

Compliance with the following calculated values shall be ensured:

(1)

Mean time of hours of operation between failures of a CCS on-board subsystem requiring the isolation of the train protection functions: (open point).

(2)

Mean time of hours of operation between failures of a CCS on-board subsystem preventing radio voice communication between traffic control and the train driver: (open point).

To allow the infrastructure managers and railway undertakings to monitor, during the life of the subsystems, the level of risk and the respect of the reliability/availability values used for the definition of procedures to manage degraded situations, the requirements for maintenance stated in point 4.5 (Maintenance rules) shall be respected.

4.4.   Operating rules

The rules for operating a railway service with ETCS and GSM-R 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, 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 point 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 point 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 Union legislation and the national legislation that is compatible with the Union legislation.

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

4.8.   Registers

5.   INTEROPERABILITY CONSTITUENTS

5.1.   Definition

According to Article 2(f) of Directive 2008/57/EC, 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 Trackside 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 Trackside Subsystem.

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

6.1.   Introduction

6.1.1.   General principles

6.1.1.1.   Compliance with basic parameters

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 point 6.2.1, 6.2.2, 6.2.3, 6.2.4);

(2)

verifying the subsystems (see point 6.3 and point 6.4.1).

6.1.1.2.   Essential requirements fulfilled by National Rules

In certain cases, 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 under Article 9 of Directive 2008/57/EC;

(4)

specific cases described in point 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. See point 6.4.2.

6.1.1.3.   Non-implementation of all requirements of this TSI

With regard to checking if essential requirements are fulfilled through compliance with the basic parameters, and without prejudice to the obligations set out in Chapter 7 of this TSI, control-command and signalling interoperability constituents and subsystems that do not implement all functions, performance and interfaces as specified in Chapter 4 (including the specifications referred to in Annex A), can obtain EC certificates of conformity or, respectively, certificates of verification, under the following conditions for issuing and using the certificates:

(1)

the applicant for EC verification of a trackside control-command and signalling subsystem is responsible for deciding which functions, performance and interfaces need to be implemented to meet the objectives for the service and to ensure that no requirements contradicting or exceeding the TSIs are exported to the on-board control-command and signalling subsystems;

(2)

the operation of an on-board control-command and signalling subsystem, that does not implement all functions, performance and interfaces specified in this TSI, may be subject to conditions or restrictions due to compatibility and/or safe integration with trackside control-command and signalling subsystems. Without prejudice to the tasks of a notified body described in respective Union legislation and related documents the applicant for EC verification is responsible for ensuring that the technical file provides all the information that an operator needs to identify such conditions and restrictions;

(3)

the Member State may refuse for duly justified reasons the authorisation for placing in service, or place conditions and restrictions on the operation, of control-command and signalling subsystems that do not implement all functions, performance and interfaces specified in this TSI.

If a control-command and signalling interoperability constituent or subsystem does not implement all functions, performance and interfaces specified in this TSI, the provisions of point 6.4.3 shall apply.

6.1.2.   Principles for testing ETCS and GSM-R

6.1.2.1.   Goal

The goal to be achieved is that 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 Trackside 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 Trackside subsystems;

(2)

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

6.1.2.2.   Operational test scenarios

For the purpose of this TSI, an ‘operational test scenario’ means the description of the intended railway system operation in situations relevant for ETCS and GSM-R (e.g. entry of a train into an equipped area, awakening of a train, overriding a signal at stop), by means of a sequence of trackside and on-board events related to or influencing the Control-command and Signalling subsystems (e.g. sending/receiving messages, exceeding a speed limit, actions of operators (17) and the specified timing between them.

The operational tests scenarios are based on the engineering rules adopted for the project.

Check of compliance of a real implementation with an operational tests scenario shall be possible gathering information through easily accessible interfaces (preferably the standard interfaces specified in this TSI).

6.1.2.3.   Requirements

To help the achievement of the goal mentioned above, Member States shall ensure that, when the process of EC Verification of a Trackside Control-command and Signalling subsystem is initiated, the engineering rules and the preliminary operational test scenarios related to the interactions of its ETCS and GSM-R parts with the corresponding parts of an On-board Control-command and Signalling Subsystem are made available to the European Railway Agency as soon as possible. The European Railway Agency shall be informed of any changes to operational tests scenarios used during the EC Verification.

The set of engineering rules for the trackside parts of ETCS and GSM-R and related operational test scenarios for the Trackside Control-command and Signalling Subsystem made available, shall be sufficient to describe all intended system operations relevant for the Trackside Control-command and Signalling Subsystem in normal and identified degraded situations, and:

(1)

shall be consistent with the specifications referenced in this TSI;

(2)

shall assume that functions, interfaces and performance of the Control-command and Signalling On-board Subsystems interacting with the Trackside Subsystem are compliant with the requirements of this TSI;

(3)

shall be the ones used in the EC Verification of the Trackside Control-command and Signalling Subsystem, to check that the implemented functions, interfaces and performance are able to ensure that the intended system operation in combination with the relevant modes and transitions between levels and modes of the Control-command and Signalling On-board Subsystems are respected.

The European Railway Agency:

(1)

shall publish the engineering rules for the trackside parts of ETCS and GSM-R and the operational test scenarios. After publication of preliminary scenarios or of their subsequent modifications, all interested parties shall be allowed to comment on the consistency of the operational test scenarios with the conditions stated in the three intends above. The period for comments shall be defined with each publication and shall not exceed six months; this period shall not be a constraint on the continuation/finalisation of the EC Verification of the relevant Trackside subsystem(s);

(2)

shall, if the comments are negative, coordinate the efforts of the parties involved, in order to find an agreement, e.g. by changing the engineering rules for the trackside parts of ETCS and GSM-R and, consequently, the operational test scenarios, in case they are in contradiction with the requirements of this TSI;

(3)

shall publish and maintain the operational test scenarios that have successfully passed the steps described above and representing the situations which occur in different implementations;

(4)

shall use the received operational test scenarios to assess whether clarifications or improvements of the specifications referenced in this TSI are necessary;

(5)

shall, on the basis of the operational tests scenarios received, prepare and publish a standard format for future publications of operational test scenario.

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 Directive 2008/57/EC.

The assessment procedure shall be carried out using one of the modules specified in point 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. Compliance with relevant basic parameters, as demonstrated by the ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity, is sufficient for placing the interoperability constituents on the market (18).

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 the Commission Decision 2010/713/EU (19).

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 shall 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 shall be individually examined.

6.2.3.   Assessment requirements

Independently of the selected module:

(1)

the requirements stated in point 6.2.4.1 of this TSI shall be respected for the ‘On-board 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.

Check compliance with maintenance requirements — point 4.5.1

Document check

6.2.4.   Special issues

6.2.4.1.   Mandatory tests for the on-board ETCS

Particular attention shall be given to assessing the conformity of the on-board 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

(1)

a representative specimen of the interoperability constituent has been submitted to a full set of test sequences including all test cases necessary to check the functions referenced in point 4.2.2 (on-board ETCS functionality). The applicant is responsible to define the test cases and their organisation in sequences, if this is not included in specifications referenced in this TSI;

(2)

these tests were carried out in a laboratory accredited in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 765/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (20) to carry out tests with the use of the test architecture and the procedures specified in Annex A 4.2.2c.

The laboratory shall provide a full report clearly indicating the results of the tests cases and sequences used. The Notified Body is responsible to assess the suitability of test cases and sequences to check compliance with all relevant requirements and to evaluate the results of tests in view of the certification of the Interoperability Constituent.

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 ETCS requires a conformity assessment carried out by a Notified Body.

6.2.5.   Additional tests

To increase confidence that the On-board ETCS Interoperability Constituent will operate correctly when installed in On-board Control-command and Signalling Subsystems running on different Trackside Control-command and Signalling applications, it is recommended that it is tested using relevant scenarios from the ones published by the Agency; see point 6.1.2 (Principles for testing ETCS and GSM-R). The tests can be performed using real equipment or a simulated Trackside Control-command and Signalling Subsystem.

These tests are not mandatory for the certification of the On-board ETCS Interoperability Constituent. The applicant for certification of the Interoperability Constituent may decide to perform them and have them assessed by a Notified Body; the corresponding documentation shall provide information about the operational test scenarios against which the Interoperability Constituent has been checked and whether tests have been carried out with simulators or using real equipment, including type and version of such equipment.

Performing these tests at the level of Interoperability Constituent may also reduce the amount of checks at the level of Control-command and Signalling Subsystem (see Table 6.2, last row, and point 6.5).

Note: while it is not mandatory to perform tests using different operational scenarios, it must be noted that these tests may assist the verification of the Interoperability Constituent to eliminate as much as possible systematic failures, which is mandatory to obtain an EC certificate of conformity.

6.2.6.   Content of the ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity

The ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity specified in Annex IV of Directive 2008/57/EC 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 Trackside Subsystem.

At the request of the applicant the Notified Body shall carry out an ‘EC’ verification of a Control-Command and Signalling On-board or Trackside Subsystem in accordance with Annex VI to Directive 2008/57/EC.

The applicant shall draw up the ‘EC’ declaration of verification for the Control-Command and Signalling On-board or Trackside Subsystem in accordance with Article 18(1) and Annex V of Directive 2008/57/EC.

The content of the ‘EC’ declaration of verification shall conform to Annex V to Directive 2008/57/EC.

The assessment procedure shall be carried out using one of the modules as specified in point 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 Trackside 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 Commission 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.   Trackside Subsystem

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

(1)

the unit verification procedure (Module SG); or

(2)

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

(3)

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

(4)

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

6.3.2.3.   Conditions for using modules for On-board and Trackside Subsystems

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

With reference to point 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,

Table 6.2

Aspect

What to assess

Supporting evidence

Use of interoperability constituents

Check whether the interoperability constituents to be integrated into the subsystem are all covered by an ‘EC’ Declaration of conformity and a corresponding certificate.

The Subsystem needs to be checked with a SIM card compliant with the requirements of this TSI. Changing the SIM card with another one compliant with the TSI is not a modification of the Subsystem.

Existence and content of documents

Check restrictions on the use of Interoperability Constituents against the characteristics of the subsystem and of the environment

Analysis by document check

For interoperability constituents that have been certified against older versions of the CCS TSI, check that the certificate still ensures compliance with the requirements of the TSI currently in force.

Check the correct installation and functioning of the internal interfaces of the subsystem — Basic parameters 4.2.6

Checks according to specifications

Check that additional functions (not specified in this TSI) do not impact the mandatory ones

Impact analysis

Check that the values of ETCS IDs are within the allowed range and, if required by this TSI, have unique values — Basic parameter 4.2.9

Check of design specifications

Integration with rolling stock

Check the correct installation of equipment — Basic Parameters 4.2.2, 4.2.4, 4.2.14 and conditions for installation of equipment, as specified by the manufacturer

Results of checks (according to specifications referenced in the Basic Parameters and the manufacturer’s installation rules)

Check that the Control-Command and Signalling On-board Subsystem is compatible with the rolling stock environment — Basic parameter 4.2.16

Document check (certificates of interoperability constituents and possible integration methods checked against characteristics of rolling stock)

Check that parameters (e.g. braking parameters) are correctly configured and that they are within the allowed range

Document check (values of parameters checked against characteristics of rolling stock)

Integration with Class B

Check that the external STM is connected to on-board ETCS with TSI-compliant interfaces

Nothing to test: there is a standard interface already tested at interoperability constituent level. Its functioning has already been tested when checking the integration of interoperability constituents in the subsystem

Check that Class B functions implemented in the on-board ETCS — Basic parameter 4.2.6.1 — create no additional requirements for the Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystem due to transitions

Nothing to test: everything has already been tested at interoperability constituent level

Check that separate Class B equipment which is not connected to the on-board ETCS — Basic Parameter 4.2.6.1 — creates no additional requirements for Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystem due to transitions

Nothing to test: no interface (21)

Check that separate Class B equipment connected on-board ETCS using (partly) non-TSI-compliant interfaces — basic parameter 4.2.6.1 — creates no additional requirements for the Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystem due to transitions. Also check that ETCS functions are not affected

Impact analysis

Integration with Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystems

Check that Eurobalise telegrams can be read (scope of this test is limited to checking that the antenna has been appropriately installed. The tests already carried out at Interoperability Constituent level should not be repeated) — Basic Parameter 4.2.5

Test using a certified Eurobalise: the ability to read correctly the telegram is the supporting evidence.

Check that Euroloop telegrams (if applicable) can be read — Basic Parameter 4.2.5

Test using a certified Euroloop: the ability to read correctly the telegram is the supporting evidence.

Check that the equipment can handle a GSM-R call for voice and data (if applicable) — Basic Parameter 4.2.5

Test with a certified GSM-R network. The ability to set up, maintain and disconnect a connection is the supporting evidence.

Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety (RAMS)

Application of procedures specified in the Common Safety Method

Check that the quantitative reliability target is met — Basic Parameter 4.2.1

Calculations

Check the compliance with requirements about maintenance — point 4.5.2

Documents check

Integration with Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystems and other subsystems:

tests under operational conditions

Test the behaviour of the subsystem under as many different operational conditions as reasonably possible (e.g. line gradient, train speed, vibrations, traction power, weather conditions, design of Control-Command and Signalling trackside functionality). The test must be able to verify:

1.

that odometry functions are correctly performed — basic parameter 4.2.2;

2.

that the on-board Control-Command and Signalling Subsystem is compatible with the rolling stock environment – basic parameter 4.2.16.

These tests must also be such as to increase confidence that there will be no systematic failures.

The scope of these tests excludes tests already carried out at earlier stages: tests performed on the interoperability constituents and tests performed on the subsystem in a simulated environment shall be taken into account.

Tests under operational conditions are not necessary for on-board GSM-R voice equipment.

Reports of test runs.

Indicate in the certificate which conditions have been tested and which standards have been applied.

Information in the certificate and accompanying documentation shall be sufficient to identify possible checks to be performed before using the On-board Subsystem on a specific route.

If additional tests under operational conditions are made for a Subsystem having already a Certificate of Verification, corresponding information can be added, at the request of the applicant, as an extension of the documentation accompanying the certificate.

6.3.4.   Assessment requirements for a Trackside 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 ETCS part of the Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystem, application-specific information is needed. This shall 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 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 shall be carried out to verify a Control-Command and Signalling Trackside Subsystem and the basic parameters that shall be respected;

(2)

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

6.4.   Provisions in case of the partial fulfilment of TSI requirements

6.4.1.   Assessment of parts of control-command and signalling subsystems

Pursuant to Article 18(5) of Directive 2008/57/EC, the notified body may issue certificates of verification for certain parts of a subsystem, if allowed to do so under the relevant TSI.

As pointed out in point 2.2 (Scope) of this TSI, the trackside and on-board control-command and signalling subsystems contain parts, as specified in point 4.1 (Introduction).

A certificate of verification may be issued for each part specified in this TSI; the notified body only checks if that particular part fulfils the TSI requirements.

Regardless of which module is chosen, the notified body shall check that:

(1)

the TSI requirements for the part in question have been fulfilled; and

(2)

the TSI requirements already assessed for other parts of the same subsystem are still fulfilled.

6.4.2.   Assessment in case of application of National Rules

If some essential requirements are fulfilled by national rules, the EC certificate of conformity for an interoperability constituent and the certificate of verification for a subsystem shall make precise reference to the parts of this TSI whose conformity has been assessed and the parts whose conformity has not been assessed.

6.4.3.   Partial fulfilment of the requirements due to limited application of the TSI

6.4.3.1.   Interoperability constituents

If an interoperability constituent does not implement all functions, performance and interfaces specified in this TSI, an EC certificate of conformity may only be issued if the unimplemented functions, interfaces or performance are not required to integrate the interoperability constituent into a subsystem for the use indicated by the applicant, for example (22),

(1)

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

(2)

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

The EC certificate of conformity (or accompanying documents) for the interoperability constituent shall fulfil all the following requirements:

(1)

it indicates which functions, interfaces or performance are not implemented;

(2)

it provides enough information to make it possible to identify the conditions under which the interoperability constituent can be used;

(3)

it provides enough information to make it possible to identify the conditions of and restriction on the use that will apply to the interoperability of a subsystem incorporating it.

6.4.3.2.   Subsystems

If a control-command and signalling subsystem does not implement all functions, performance and interfaces of this TSI (e.g. because they are not implemented by an interoperability constituent integrated into it), the certificate of verification shall indicate which requirements have been assessed and the corresponding conditions and restrictions on the use of the subsystem and its compatibility with other subsystems.

6.4.3.3.   Content of certificates

In any event, notified bodies shall coordinate with the Agency the way in which conditions and limits of use of interoperability constituents and subsystems are managed in the relevant certificates and technical files in the working group set up under Article 21a(5) of Regulation (EC) No 881/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (23).

6.4.4.   Intermediate Statement of Verification

If conformity is assessed for parts of subsystems specified by the applicant and different from the parts allowed by point 4.1 (Introduction) of this TSI, or if only certain stages of the verification procedure have been performed, only an intermediate statement of verification may be issued.

6.5.   Compatibility tests and management of errors

The basic parameters specified in chapter 4 and assessed according to points 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 of this TSI and, where necessary, specific cases and notified national rules for open points, are sufficient to determine the technical compatibility and safe integration between an On- board and a Trackside Control-command and Signalling subsystem.

To support the operators to take appropriate decisions on the use of an On-board (respectively, Trackside) Control-Command and Signalling subsystem, the applicant for EC Verification, at the request of the relevant operator, shall perform compatibility tests (on-site or in laboratories providing a simulated environment) where the subsystem interacts with Trackside (respectively, On-board) subsystems that are relevant for its intended use. In case compatibility tests are carried out, the applicant shall provide evidence and test results to the relevant Safety Authority.

It should be noted that some of these tests can already be performed at the level of Interoperability Constituents (see point 6.2.4.1).

For ETCS and GSM-R, the operational test scenarios of the relevant trackside subsystem (see point 6.1.2) are the basis of these verifications.

Compatibility tests are not in the scope of a certificate of verification. If they are performed and assessed by a Notified Body, upon request of the applicant, according to a selected module, the corresponding documentation shall identify the Control-command and Signalling Subsystems with which compatibility has been checked, with indication of types and versions of equipment and of operational test scenarios applied.

Where the outcome of any additional tests demonstrate that modifications are required to documentation submitted to the relevant Safety Authority as evidence for the authorisation of the subsystem, then the project entity performing the additional tests shall ensure that the relevant Safety Authority is notified of the changes.

Where deviations from intended functions and/or performance are detected during the abovementioned tests or during the operational life of a subsystem, the applicants and/or operators shall inform the Safety Authorities that issued the authorisations for the concerned subsystems, to initiate the procedures set out in Article 19 of Directive 2008/57/EC, as a result of the application of Article 19(3) of that Directive:

(1)

if the deviation is due to incorrect application of this TSI or to errors in design or installation of equipment, the applicant for the relevant certificates shall take the necessary corrective actions and the certificates affected (for interoperability constituents and/or subsystems) shall be updated;

(2)

if the deviation is due to errors in this TSI or in specifications referenced therein, the procedure set out in Article 7 of the Directive 2008/57/EC shall be initiated.

To support ERA to improve the ETCS specifications and the process for EC certification and verification, and to facilitate the European deployment of ETCS, the documentation of compatibility tests described above and the reports of the tests performed by suppliers of the ETCS on-board and trackside as part of their product validation processes shall be made transparent for the system authority ERA. ERA shall organise an efficient processing of the information received in order to facilitate the Change Control Management process for improvement/further development of the specifications, including the test specifications.

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 Subsystems or parts of them

Upgrading or renewing the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems may concern any or all of the parts constituting them, as specified in point 2.2.

The different parts of the Control-Command and Signalling Subsystems may therefore be upgraded or renewed separately, if interoperability is not jeopardised.

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 the Class A train protection system, 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 (24) the availability of an STM cannot be ensured, the Member State concerned shall inform the Committee referred to in Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC 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 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.

Trackside 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 trackside.

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. Being equipped with a Class B system in addition to Class A shall not be a requirement for the compatibility of a vehicle with lines where Class B is installed in parallel with Class A.

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 ETCS equipment or connected via a non- standard interface; or

(3)

independently from the 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

The applicant for EC Verification of a Control-command and Signalling Trackside subsystem shall check whether Control-command and Signalling Trackside functions, which are defined ‘optional’ in this TSI, are required by other TSIs or national rules or by the application of risk evaluation and assessment to ensure safe integration of subsystems.

The trackside 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:

(1)

An ETCS Level 3 Trackside application requires train integrity supervision on-board;

(2)

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

(3)

When ETCS needs data transmission by radio, the data radio communication part as specified in this TSI is required.

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

7.3.   GSM-R specific implementation rules

7.3.1.   Trackside installations

The fitting of GSM-R is mandatory when:

(1)

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

(2)

upgrading the radio communication part of a Control-Command and Signalling Trackside 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;

(3)

Implementation of ETCS level 2, level 3 or level 1 with radio in-fill needs data radio communication.

7.3.2.   On-board installations

The fitting of GSM-R in rolling stock intended for use on a line including at least one point equipped with GSM-R (even if superimposed to a legacy radio communication system), is mandatory when:

(1)

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

(2)

upgrading the voice radio communication 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;

(3)

Implementation of ETCS level 2, level 3 or level 1 with radio in-fill need data radio communication.

7.4.   ETCS specific implementation rules

7.4.1.   Trackside installations

As set out in Article 11, points 7.3.1, 7.3.2, 7.3.4 and 7.3.5 of the Annex of Decision 2012/88/EU shall apply until the date of application of the implementing acts referred to in Article 47 of Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013.

7.4.2.   On-board installations

7.4.2.1.   New vehicles

(1)

New vehicles authorised to be placed in service for the first time shall be equipped with ETCS in accordance with Annex A of this TSI.

(2)

The requirement to be equipped with ETCS does not apply to:

(1)

new mobile railway infrastructure construction and maintenance equipment;

(2)

new shunting locomotives;

(3)

other new vehicles not intended for operating on high-speed lines:

(a)

if they are intended exclusively for national service operated outside the corridors defined in point 7.3.4 of Annex III of Decision 2012/88/EU and outside the lines ensuring the connections to the main European ports, marshalling yards, freight terminals and freight transport areas defined in point 7.3.5 of the Annex of Decision 2012/88/EU; or

(b)

if they are intended for off-TEN cross-border service, i.e. service until the first station in the neighbouring country or to the first station where there are connections further in the neighbouring country.

(3)

From 1 January 2019, the set of specifications # 1 listed in Table 2.1 of Annex A of this TSI is not applicable any more for new vehicles to be placed in service for the first time.

7.4.2.2.   Upgrading and renewal of existing vehicles

It is mandatory to fit ETCS on-board existing vehicles if installing any new train protection part of a control-command and signalling on-board subsystem on existing high-speed vehicles.

7.4.3.   National requirements

(1)

Member States may introduce additional requirements at national level, in particular with a view to:

(1)

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

(2)

requesting that new and upgraded or renewed mobile railway infrastructure construction and maintenance equipment, shunting locomotives and/or other vehicles, even if intended exclusively for national service, be equipped with ETCS.

(2)

Member States may decide to exclude from the obligation set out in the first paragraph of point 7.4.2.1 all new vehicles intended exclusively for national service except when the area of use of those vehicles includes more than 150 km of a section currently equipped or to be equipped with ETCS within 5 years after the authorisation for placing in service of those vehicles. Member States shall publish their decision for implementing this provision, notify such decision to the Commission and include it in the National Implementation Plan referred to in point 7.4.4.

7.4.4.   National Implementation Plans

Member States shall develop a national plan for the implementation of this TSI, considering the coherence of the entire rail system of the European Union taking into account the economic viability of the rail system. This plan shall include all new, renewed and upgraded lines, in particular a detailed timeline for equipping those lines with ETCS and decommissioning of Class B systems. Trackside implementation rules are set out in point 7.4.1 of this Regulation. The national implementation plan does not include additional trackside implementation rules.

The national implementation plan shall include:

(1)

General and context description, including facts and figures on existing train protection systems, such as capacity, safety, reliability performance, remaining economic lifetime of the installed equipment and cost benefit analysis of ETCS implementation.

(2)

Definition of the technical migration strategy (overlay on-board or overlay at trackside) and the financial migration strategy (both at infrastructure and rolling-stock side).

(3)

A description of the measures taken to ensure open market conditions for its legacy Class B train protection systems as set out in paragraph 7.2.3.

(4)

Planning which includes:

(i)

the dates of ETCS deployment on the different lines of the network (when services are allowed to operate with ETCS);

(ii)

the indicative dates of decommissioning of Class B systems on the different lines of the network (when services cannot operate anymore with legacy systems). If decommissioning of Class B systems is not foreseen within a period of 15 years, these indicative dates are not required;

(iii)

the dates when existing cross-border vehicles shall fully benefit from operation with ‘ETCS only equipped on-board’ on the high-speed network, corridors or other parts of the network. For high-speed services, this date depends on ETCS deployment on the high-speed network and on other parts of the network (e.g. stations being used by these high-speed services); For freight services, this date depends on the ETCS deployment on the corridors and on other parts of the network (e.g. last miles).

The national implementation plans shall run over a period of at least 15 years and shall be updated regularly, at least every five years.

Member States shall notify their national implementation plans to the Commission no later than 5 July 2017. The national implementation plans shall be used to update the data into the geographical and technical information system for the trans-European transport network (TENtec) referred to in Article 49 of Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013. The Commission shall publish the national implementation plans on its website and inform Member States about them through the Committee referred to in Article 29(1) of Directive 2008/57/EC.

The Commission shall draw up a comparative overview of the national implementation plans. On the basis of this overview, the need for additional coordination measures shall be identified.

7.5.   Train detection systems specific implementation rules

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

Trackside 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 Control-command and Signalling Trackside.

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 ETCS or GSM-R, but can be dependent on the Class B train protection 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 trackside or on-board systems;

(3)

renewing the train detection system, where this is required by the upgrade or renewal of trackside 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.

For the purposes of this TSI, when a document listed in Table A 2 makes a ‘mandatory’ or ‘normative’ reference to a document not listed in Table A 2, the referenced document shall always be understood as an acceptable means of compliance with basic parameters (that can be used for certification of Interoperability Constituents and Subsystems and not requiring future revisions of the TSI) and not as a mandatory specification.

Note: specifications indicated as ‘Reserved’ in Table A 2 are also listed as open points in Annex G when there is a need for notification of national rules to close the corresponding open points. Reserved documents not listed as open points are intended as improvements to the system.

Note 1:

only the functional description of information to be recorded is mandatory, not the technical characteristics of the interface

Note 2:

the clauses of the specifications listed in point 2.1 of EN 301 515 which are referenced in Index 32 and Index 33 as ‘MI’ are mandatory.

Note 3:

the change requests (CRs) listed in Tables 1 and 2 of TS 102 281 which affect clauses referenced in Index 32 and Index 33 as ‘MI’ are mandatory.

Note 4:

Index 48 refers only to test cases for GSM-R mobile equipment. It is kept ‘reserved’ for the time being. The application guide will contain a catalogue of available harmonised test cases for the assessment of mobile equipment and networks, according to the steps indicated in point 6.1.2 of this TSI.

Note 5:

the products which are on the market are already tailored to the needs of the RU related to GSM-R Driver-Machine Interface and fully interoperable so there is no need for a standard in the TSI CCS.

Note 6:

information that was intended for Index 78 is now incorporated in Index 27 (SUBSET-091).

Note 7:

this document is ETCS and GSM-R baseline independent.

Note 8:

Intentionally deleted.

Note 9:

ERA analysis showed there is no need for a mandatory specification for odometry interface.

Note 10:

Only the (MI) requirements are mandated by TSI CCS.

Note 11:

Intentionally deleted.

Note 12:

Reference to these specifications will be published in the Application Guide, waiting for clarifications on the rolling stock side of the interface.

Note 13:
