ERA TAF TSI Implementation Cooperation Group

According to Article 5(1) of the TAF TSI Regulation (EU) No 1305/2014, the Agency "shall assess and oversee the implementation of this Regulation to determine whether the agreed objectives and deadlines have been achieved and shall provide an assessment report to the TAF steering committee referred to in Section 7.1.4 of the Annex."

To this end the Implementation Cooperation Group was set up and performs following activities:
  • Assess the reports from the sector (NCPs and RBs) about the TAF TSI implementation.
  • Compare the data received with the content of the Master Plan and assess the progress of implementation to determine whether the objectives pursued and deadlines have been achieved.
  • Use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) previously agreed between the Agency and the Rail Sector to assess the evolution of the deployment of the system and report twice per year to the European Commission and to the TAF Steering Committee.
  • Perform a dissemination campaign to NCPs and assist them to follow-up the TAF TSI implementation at national level.

On this basis, the Agency provides 2 Reports per year on the progress of the implementation which include:

  • target dates per TAF-TSI Function compared to the Master Plan;
  • target dates per function by country, as an aggregate of all responses, compared to the Master Plan;
  • progress (shown as percentage) of the implementation per TAF TSI function on weighted responses;
  • proposed measures to mitigate possible delays.
