Commission adopts “no-deal” contingency measure for railway connectivity

Commission adopts “no-deal” contingency measure for railway connectivity

Given the increasing risk that the United Kingdom may leave the European Union on 30 March this year without a deal (a “no-deal” scenario), the European Commission has adopted a proposal to help mitigate the significant impact that such a scenario would have on rail transport and connectivity between the EU and the UK, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to the press statement of the European Commission.

The proposal will ensure the validity of safety authorisations for certain parts of rail infrastructure for a strictly limited period of three months to allow long-term solutions in line with EU law to be put in place. This will ensure the protection of rail-passengers, the safety of citizens and will avoid major disruptions of cross-border rail operations after the UK's withdrawal.

The proposal is temporary in nature, limited in scope and will be adopted unilaterally by the EU.
