Joint letter to ERA on assessment of 2015 Annual Work Programme

GRB Assessment of the ERA 2015 Annual Work Programme

The Group of Representative Bodies (GRB) welcomes the ERA prioritisation of outputs. Building on this proposed prioritisation, the GRB recommends to classify further outputs as “significant”. These activities identified as “Top priority” or “High priority” are
recommended to be quickly developed and implemented, and appropriately resourced.

GRB would like to take this opportunity to reaffirm its support to develop a multi-annual work programme taking into account the tasks and responsibilities of the Agency as outlined in the 4th Railway Package’s Technical Pillar.

GRB pleads to sufficiently reflect the preparation of the implementation of the technical part of the 4th Railway Package with the European Railway Agency becoming the one-stopshop for vehicle authorisation and safety certification.
