UIP promotes a better sharing of information among rail actors as a basic requirement to ensure safe operations and a role for ERA to facilitate the way forward in the exchange of the return of experience.

UIP held a Workshop on Risk Assessment and ECM Certification in Cologne on March 27, 2013. The workshop brought together speakers from the European Railway Agency, Entities in Charge of Maintenance, Wagon Keepers, Workshops, Certification Bodies, and some RUs. This event comes at a critical time as the 31 May is the deadline for the mandatory certification of self-declared Entities in Charge of Maintenance (ECMs) according to Regulation 445/2011/EC.
