Amended RNE Network Statement Common Structure and new common template for service facility information

The amended RNE Network Statement Common Structure, which is applicable from timetable 2020, was approved on 16 May 2018 by the RNE General Assembly. The main highlight of the amendments is the Common Template for Service Facility Information, which became an annex of the Common Structure.
Article 5(2) of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2177 on access to service facilities and rail-related services prescribes that IMs shall provide a common template to be developed by the railway sector in cooperation with RBs that operators of service facilities may use to submit the information required by this Implementing Regulation. RNE was mandated to develop it in cooperation with IRG-Rail, which was successfully consulted with all sector stakeholders (CER, CIT, EIM, ERFA, TAG speakers of the RFCs and UIRR) under the coordination of the European Commission.
