COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/777

of 16 May 2019

on the common specifications for the register of railway infrastructure and repealing Implementing Decision 2014/880/EU

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive (EU) 2016/797 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 May 2016 on the interoperability of the rail system within the European Union (1), and in particular Article 49(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive (EU) 2016/797 clarifies the roles of railway actors, especially railway undertakings and infrastructure managers, in relation to the checks to be performed before the use of authorised vehicles.

(2)

The register of railway infrastructure should provide transparency on the characteristics of the network and be used as a reference database. In particular, it should be used in combination with the values of the parameters recorded in the vehicle authorisation for placing on the market, to check the technical compatibility between a vehicle and a route.

(3)

The list of parameters of the register of railway infrastructure and the common user interface set out in Commission Implementing Decision 2014/880/EU (2) should be updated in order to allow for the checking of vehicle-route compatibility. At the same time, the register of infrastructure web-based application (RINF Application) should replace the common user interface.

(4)

The RINF Application should be set up and managed by the European Union Agency for Railways (the ‘Agency’) and should provide access to the Member States' asset record stating the values of the network parameters of each subsystem or part of subsystem concerned. In particular, Member States should use it to comply with the publication obligation provided for in Article 49(1) of Directive (EU) 2016/797, in order to provide users with a single entry point.

(5)

Data relating to the parameters specified in the table in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/880/EU is to be collected and inserted, for the whole Union rail system, in the register of railway infrastructure by 16 March 2019, in accordance with Article 5 of that Decision. Data relating to new parameters specified in this Regulation should be collected and inserted in the register of infrastructure in due time to achieve the objectives of Directive (EU) 2016/797, in particular to allow for the checking of vehicle-route compatibility on the basis of the RINF Application. RINF Application should be operational at the latest when this Regulation enters into application and data relating to parameters relevant for the checking of vehicle-route compatibility should be collected and inserted by 16 January 2020 at the latest and as soon as practicable.

(6)

Each Member State should designate a national registration entity to be responsible for the coordination of the submission and regular update of data of its register of infrastructure.

(7)

Infrastructure managers should collect data relating to their network and ensure that data submitted to registration entities is complete, consistent, accurate and up to date.

(8)

Further developments of the RINF Application should facilitate the checking of vehicle-route compatibility and the compilation of the route book with information from the RINF Application. The Agency should assess the benefits and cost of RINF Application add-ons and implement them as appropriate.

(9)

The Agency should set up an application guide describing and where necessary explaining the requirements of this Regulation. The guidelines should be updated, published and made available to the public free of charge.

(10)

On 27 July 2018, the Agency issued a recommendation on the common specifications for the register of railway infrastructure to update the functions of the register of infrastructure with Directive (EU) 2016/797.

(11)

Implementing Decision 2014/880/EU should therefore be repealed.

4.1.   Register of infrastructure system

The architecture of the registers of infrastructure system shall be as follows.

Figure 1

RINF system

Image 1

4.2.   Administration of the RINF application

The RINF application shall be a web-based application set up, managed, maintained and administered by the Agency.

The Agency shall make available to the national registration entities (NREs) the following files and documents to be used for the setting up of the registers of infrastructure and connecting them with the RINF application:

(a)

user manual;

(b)

specification of the structure of the files for the transmission of data;

(c)

description of codes for preparing the files — Guide describing the validation process of the transmitted files.

4.3.   Minimum required functionality of the RINF application

The RINF application shall provide at least the following functionalities:

(a)

user management: the RINF application administrator must be able to manage users' access rights;

(b)

information auditing: the RINF application administrator must be able to view the logs of all user activity performed on the RINF application as a list of the activities that have been performed by RINF application users within a particular timeframe;

(c)

connectivity and authentication: the registered RINF application users must be able to connect to the RINF application via internet and use its functionalities according to their rights;

(d)

prepare files for infrastructure managers users;

(e)

merge files for national registration entity users;

(f)

search for the register of infrastructure data including OPs and/or SoLs, including data validity dates;

(g)

select an OP or a SoL and view its details: the RINF application users must be able to define a geographical area using the map interface and the RINF application provides the available data requested by the users for this area;

(h)

view information for a specified subset of lines and OPs in a defined area via a map interface;

(i)

visual representation of items of the register of infrastructure on a digital map: the users, through the RINF application, must be able to navigate, select an item depicted on the map and retrieve any relevant information;

(j)

visual representation of data of the register of infrastructure allowing publication of thematic maps;

(k)

list SoLs and OPs which are part of a route defined by the user and export the corresponding characteristics;

(l)

deliver a certificate each time the export of characteristics resulting from a search is intended to be used by a railway undertaking in accordance with Article 23(1) of Directive (EU) 2016/797;

(m)

application programming interface (API);

(n)

validation, upload and reception of the data sets provided by a national register entity.

4.4.   Operating mode

The register of infrastructure system shall provide two main interfaces via the RINF application:

(a)

one which is to be used by Member States in order to submit their set of data;

(b)

the other which is to be used by RINF application users in order to connect to the system and retrieve information.

Pending the evolution of the RINF application to allow infrastructure managers to update information directly in it, the RINF application central database shall be fed with copies of the sets of data maintained by each Member State. In particular, NREs shall create files that encapsulate the full set of data following the specifications of Table 1 and submit it to the RINF application in accordance with Article 5.

NREs shall upload the files to the RINF application through a dedicated interface provided for this operation. A specific module shall facilitate the validation and uploading of data provided by NREs.

The RINF application central database shall make data sent by NREs publicly available without any modification.

The basic functionality of the RINF application shall allow users to search and retrieve data of register of infrastructure.

The RINF application shall retain the complete historical record of data made available by NREs. Those records shall be stored for two years from the date of withdrawal of the data.

The Agency, as administrator of the RINF application, shall provide access to users upon request.

Answers to the queries initiated by the RINF application users shall be provided within 24 hours from the moment the query was initiated.

4.5.   Availability

The RINF application shall be available seven days a week. The unavailability of the system shall be minimal during maintenance.

In the case of failure outside the normal working hours of the Agency, the actions to restore the service shall start the next Agency working day.
