Freight train

Since the 16th of June 2019, the Europan Union Agency for Railways is delivering the authorisations for almost all freight wagons in Europe. To provide wagon keepers with a broader overview of the challenges and changes, we organised workshops focussing on the implementation of the technical pillar of the 4th Railway Package (RP), in particular on the vehicle authorisation process and related topics, such as fees and charges and the ERA One-Stop-Shop IT-portal. You will find more information on the workshops (incl. presentations) and on the latest published legal acts under:
