Telematics Joint Sector Group (TAF)

In order to effectively implement the Regulation about telematics applications, an efficient sector-driven organisation is required to be in place specifically to harmonise and coordinate the work-plans of the sector and work to agree a common sector position towards European Railway Agency (ERA and Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport DG MOVE whenever required. The Joint Sector Group is the key central driver of the implementation. The Joint Sector Group consists of influential stakeholders from representative bodies and sector associations.

Tasks of the TAF JSG:
  • reports regularly to the SteCo;
  • approves the implementation report prepared by the IRG and makes it publicly available;
  • provides input into the CCM Process and is accountable for the validation and coordination of all CRs coming from the sector. It is responsible for reviewing all modifications to the regulation and evaluates the impact of the CRs on the implementation plan;
  • approves TEGs terms of reference and makes recommendation for lead;
  • approves the final release of the following documents:
  • RU/IM Sector Handbook,
  • RU/RU Sector Handbook
  • Application Guide (technical document B.56) before transmission to ERA;
  • maintain the JSG website up to date
  • provides consistent information for stakeholders via the JSG website or other means of communications (e.g. Telematics Cluster);
  • may establish ad hoc working groups or subcommittees in order to address specific issues related to the implementation.

Decisions are taken by consensus.
