SUPPORT GROUPS CER
Italferr participates with its own Team of experts in the Support Groups activated in Brussels by the CER (Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies) to support the European Union Agency for Railway in defining the Legislative Acts issued by the European Union (Regulations, Directives, Decisions, Recommendations, etc.), contributing in a structured and strategic way to the development of standardisation and normalisation in the European field on issues concerning railway transport infrastructure.
Italferr's activity in the CER Support Groups is included, according to a systemic vision, in an inter-company process that involves representatives and experts from the main companies of the Italian FS Group at various levels. In the central phase of "Regulatory design and review," characterised by the so-called "Return of Experience," Italferr plays a strategic role thanks to the background acquired in the field in the direct application of the Regulations during the life cycle of the works, from the design phase to the construction phase. In line with the FS Group's international expansion strategy, this direct participation represents an important opportunity to confront with the main European stakeholders on innovative issues characterising the normative evolutionary process in the railway sector. This is a challenging context in which to develop and consolidate a common approach and language in the construction of the rules of the game, in view of the new challenges related to the definition of the single European railway space, hinged on the important EU legislative act related to the Fourth Railway Package.
