ANNESS

1.   INTRODUCTION

1.1.   Technical scope

(1)

This specification concerns data about the following subsystems of the Union rail system:

(a)

the infrastructure structural subsystem;

(b)

the energy structural subsystem; and

(c)

the fixed installations of the control-command and signalling structural subsystem.

(2)

These subsystems are included in the list of subsystems in point 1 of Annex II to Directive 2008/57/EC.

1.2.   Geographical scope

The geographical scope of this specification is the Union rail system as determined by Directive 2008/57/EC.

1.3.   Responsibility

Member States shall decide which entities are responsible for setting up and maintaining the Register of Infrastructure.

1.4.   Definitions

For the purpose of this specification:

(a)

‘macro-level’ means the overall railway network defined by sections of line and operational points;

(b)

‘micro-level’ means the detailed railway network defined for sections of line by tracks and for operational points by tracks and sidings;

(c)

‘line’ means a sequence of one or more sections, which may consist of several tracks;

(d)

‘section of line’ means the part of line between adjacent operational points and may consist of several tracks;

(e)

‘operational point’ means any location for train service operations, where train services can begin and end or change route, and where passenger or freight services are provided; ‘operational point’ may be any location where the functionality of basic parameters of a subsystem is changing or any location at boundaries between Member States or Infrastructure Managers;

(f)

‘track’ means any track used for train service movements; passing loops and meeting loops on plain line or track connections only required for train operation are not published;

(g)

‘siding’ means any track which is not used for train service movements.

2.   PURPOSE

2.1.   General

The Register of Infrastructure is used for planning purposes in designing new trains and developing routes before the start of operation. Therefore the Register of Infrastructure supports the processes described hereafter.

2.2.   Designing rolling stock subsystems

Compliance with TSIs and Notified National Technical Rules is essential from the start of the design of new or the redesign of existing subsystems throughout the whole manufacturing process. Parameters of the Register of Infrastructure should be used in order to meet infrastructure characteristics for the intended use of the rolling stock.

2.3.   Ensuring technical compatibility for fixed installations

(1)

The Notified Body checks the conformity of the subsystems with the applicable TSI(s) based on information in the relevant TSI and in the registers. It covers the verification of interfaces with the system into which it is incorporated. Verification of interfaces for technical compatibility may be ensured by consulting the Register of Infrastructure.

(2)

The body designated by the Member States checks the conformity of the subsystems when national rules apply and the Register of Infrastructure may be consulted to verify the interfaces for technical compatibility in these cases.

2.4.   Monitoring interoperability of the Union railway network

Transparency about the progress of interoperability shall be ensured to monitor regularly the development of a Union interoperable network.

2.5.   Ascertaining route compatibility for planned train

(1)

Compatibility with the route for the intended train service is checked by the Railway Undertaking by using the register of infrastructure before the Railway Undertaking procures access to the network from the Infrastructure Manager. The Railway Undertaking must be sure that the route intended to be used is capable of supporting its train.

(2)

The Railway Undertaking chooses vehicles considering any restrictions on the authorisation for placing in service and a possible route for the train intended to run:

(a)

all vehicles in the train must be in compliance with the requirements applicable on the routes over which the train will run; and

(b)

the train as a combination of vehicles must comply with the technical constraints of the route concerned.

3.   FEATURES OF THE REGISTER OF INFRASTRUCTURE

3.1.   Railway network structure for the register

(1)

For the purpose of the Register of Infrastructure each Member State shall subdivide its railway network into sections of line and operational points. This level of the register is referred to as macro-level.

(2)

Items to be published for ‘section of line’ related to infrastructure, energy and control-command and signalling subsystems shall be assigned to the infrastructure element ‘track’ referred to as micro-level.

(3)

Items to be published for ‘operational point’ related to infrastructure subsystem shall be assigned to the infrastructure elements ‘track’ and ‘siding’ referred to as micro-level.

3.2.   Items for the register of infrastructure

(1)

Items and format of items shall be published in accordance with Table 1.

(2)

Items indicated as ‘mandatory’ in Table 1 shall be published in all cases. Items indicated as ‘other’ in Table 1 are context specific and shall be published as required by Member States.

(3)

The application of items to the network type in Table 1 is specified using the following abbreviations:

—   ‘TSI’— lines verified against the TSI,

—   ‘existing’— lines put into service before the entry into force of Directive 2008/57/EC and not yet verified against the TSIs,

—   ‘TEN CR, TEN HS, Off TEN’— lines belonging to the correspondent type of network and irrespective whether verified against the TSIs or not,

—   ‘all’— all lines of the Union.
