The Corridor Information Documents
Article 18 of Regulation (EU) 913/2010 concerning a European rail network for competitive freight requires RFC Management Boards to publish Corridor Information Documents providing information on the rail infrastructure of each Rail Freight Corridor (RFC), in particular as regards commercial and legal access conditions, thus facilitating the Applicants’ international business on RFCs.
The RNE Network Statement and Corridor Information Document Working Group has developed the Corridor Information Document Common Texts and Structure designed to help Applicants find the same information, at the same level of detail, in the same place in each document. It complies with the requirements of the above-mentioned Regulation.
Harmonisation of the CIDs also used to be one of the priories of the Rotterdam Sector Declaration, which has been completed with the below documents. Both the common structure and the harmonised texts are subject to a yearly revision and are updated accoording to business and legal needs when necessary.
- Corridor Information Document Common Texts and Structure
- Harmonised Book 1 – Annex 1.1
- Harmonised Book 2 – Annex 2.1
- Harmonised Book 3 – Annex 3.1
- Harmonised Book 4 – Annex 4.1
