COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/1100

of 7 July 2015

on the reporting obligations of the Member States in the framework of rail market monitoring

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive 2012/34/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 November 2012 establishing a single European railway area (1), and in particular Article 15(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

For the purposes of rail market monitoring, Article 15(5) of Directive 2012/34/EU imposes a reporting obligation on the Member States regarding the use of networks and the evolution of framework conditions in the rail sector.

(2)

On the basis of the information submitted by the Member States, the Commission should report to the European Parliament and the Council every two years on the subjects referred to in Article 15(4) of Directive 2012/34/EU.

(3)

Member States had already been providing the Commission with the necessary information on a voluntary basis for a number of years. In order to ensure consistency and comparability between the data submitted by the Member States, detailed rules on the content and format of those data are necessary.

(4)

This Regulation sets up a questionnaire to be filled annually by the Member States for the purpose of monitoring the technical and economic conditions and market developments in the Union rail transport sector.

(5)

To compile the data required in the questionnaire, Member States should cooperate with social partners, users, regulatory bodies and other relevant competent authorities at national level.

(6)

When deciding on the content of the data to be submitted by the questionnaire, the Commission takes into account existing data sources and data already provided under current reporting obligations in order to minimise the additional burden to rail industry and Member States. In particular, the Commission, where possible, makes use of data reported under following legal acts:

Regulation (EEC) No 1108/70 of the Council (2), as regards the data on investments in railway infrastructure,

Regulation (EC) No 91/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3), as regards the data on traffic volumes on the rail network, and the data on accidents,

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1708/2005 (4), in particular its Annexes I and II, as regards the data on passenger rail transport,

Regulation (EC) No 1371/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5), as regards annual reports to be published by railway undertakings on service quality performance, and

Commission Regulation (EU) No 1300/2014 (6), as regards the inventories of assets to be established by Member States for monitoring and evaluation the accessibility of Union's rail system for persons with disabilities and reduced mobility.

(7)

The European Network of Rail Regulatory Bodies should be closely involved in the implementation of the reporting obligations under Article 15 of Directive 2012/34/EU as well as in updating the methodology for data collection.

(8)

The questionnaire included in the Annex should be used to collect data as of the reporting year 2015. For the first two years of reporting, a transitional period is necessary, given that Member States may need to adjust existing data collection mechanisms following the entry into force of this Regulation. In order to avoid misinterpretation, it is important that during the transitional period Member States inform the Commission about the differences in the data content or format in the relevant sections of the questionnaire.

(9)

Upon request of the railway undertaking concerned, and if justified by the need for commercial confidentiality, Member States may submit to the Commission the data requested in point 7 of the questionnaire in pseudonymous form.

(10)

Data collected under this Regulation should be made available to all interested parties, except where the need to protect commercial confidentiality precludes this.

(11)

Methodologies, definitions and methods of collecting data may evolve over the time as a result of technical and scientific progress. Similarly, developments in the rail market and improvements in data availability may make it desirable to either reduce or extend the scope of the questionnaire. The Annex to this Regulation should therefore be updated regularly, in order to take account of these developments in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 62(3) of Directive 2012/34/EU.

(12)

The Commission has consulted the railway sector's social partners and users through the Rail Market Monitoring Working Group. It has also consulted the European Network of Rail Regulatory Bodies.

(13)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee referred to in Article 62(1) of Directive 2012/34/EU,
