RNE Non-Personal Data

The RNE policy on non-personal data relates to business information available in RNE IT applications. The management of railway networks and train movements (co-)generates huge amounts of non-personal data every day. Yet, access to this data and its re-use within and beyond the transport sector is still hampered by factors such as an unclear legal framework, the lack of an EU single market for data and the absence of cross-sector interoperability.

To address those challenges, RNE took the initiative to self-determine its framework for access to, use of, exchange and sharing of (raw) industrial data.

Thus, the RNE Non-Personal Data Policy consists of a main body and two annexes, namely an RNE data inventory and an RNE service catalogue. In the main body topics such as the general economic and legal environment of data, confidentiality aspects, objectives and general principles of data sharing as well as legal and technical safeguards which can be adopted to guarantee trust in further re-use are addressed.

The data inventory is the first attempt in RNE’s data ecosystem for classifying its non-personal data in a single place (i.e. data assets). Similarly, the service catalogue is a single point of reference for all RNE chargeable and non-chargeable services related to data exchange within and data sharing outside of the railway sector with the respective price tag (where applicable).
