If a railway company aspires to participate in railway operation in Germany for the first time, this is defined as a change to the railway system in a Member State. Consequently, risk management processes used to assess the impact of the change on safety levels and compliance with safety requirements have to be applied. On behalf of the Eisenbahn-Bundesamt (Federal Railway Authority) an exemplary implementation of this procedure will take place for an hypothetic railway company.
At July 11, the kick-off meeting started the research project. CERSS Kompetenzzentrum Bahnsicherungstechnik will now execute a study on the application of the defined procedure for “operation and traffic management” subsystem.
