The TRAN Committee had invited the Executive Director of the European Union Agency for Railways (ERA) for an exchange of views to discuss the role of the Agency, the extension of its competencies, current topics and challenges ahead.

More specifically, the Technical Pillar of the 4th Railway Package enhanced the role of ERA introducing new tasks as authority issuing single safety certificates, vehicle (type) authorisations and ERTMS trackside approval valid in multiple European countries. The applications shall be submitted through the On-stop-shop system, managed by ERA.
This extension of responsibilities has also implications in terms of staff structure and budget of the Agency.
The exchange of views took place on Monday afternoon, 2 September 2019 in room PHS 1A2 from where it was webstreamed.
