The 4th Railway Package is another step towards the European Commission’s vision of a Single European Railway Area and as such will contribute to reshaping the European railway sector. The 6th Florence Rail Forum will analyse and discuss one of the 4th Railway Package’s pillars, namely the technical pillar.

The lack of standardisation, highly specified rolling stock, resulting investment costs, but also the costs of entering and exiting the market, remain very high. Authorization procedures are long, and fees for safety certificates are costly. But if the domestic passenger market is to be opened to competition significant measures have to be taken towards interoperability. One of these measures is transforming the European Rail Authority (ERA) to become the central body for standardization and interoperability.

Stakeholders are invited discuss the challenges stemming from the implementation of the technical pillar of the proposed 4th Railway Package. The discussions will be centred on the following guiding questions:

  • What are the major issues in implementing the technical pillar of the 4th Railway Package?
  • What is and should be the role for the European railway Agency when implementing the technical pillar of the 4th Railway Package?
  • What are the implications of the of the proposed interoperability measures for the different stakeholders?
  • Future outlook: Are the safety and interoperability measures sufficient to create an internal railway market? Which are the opportunities and threats?
