Association information

Promoting safe and compatible rail systems

The construction of a safe, modern integrated railway network is one of the EU’s major priorities. Railways must become more competitive and offer high-quality, end-to-end services without being restricted by national borders.

The European Railway Agency was set up to help create this integrated railway area by reinforcing safety and interoperability.

The Agency also acts as the system authority for the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) project, which has been set up to create unique signalling standards throughout europe.
