A freight wagon is mainly operated all over Europe, by many different RUs, sometimes across borders. We can easily understand how difficult it is to fulfill this requirement in such a business framework.
In parallel with the drafting of the ECM certification by ERA, UIP is developing a Rolling Stock reference Database (RSRD²) in order to respond to the TAF TSI requirements (Telematic Application Freight). This RSRD² is planned to provide technical information to the RUs, including maintenance information and should allow RUs to provide information to the keepers and ECMs. The RSRD² comply with the GCU requirements as well.
That is the reason why this RSRD² will be able to be used by the ECMs and RUs in order to fulfill the ECM requirements and the RUs obligation to provide operational information.
