Introduction

TTR will introduce a new way of planning and allocating railway capacity. To fully implement this innovative process, compliance with the relevant legal framework needs to be ensured. The current legal framework (European and national laws) reflects existing capacity management processes, which do no longer (fully) meet market needs. It was therefore necessary to assess whether the new process would comply with the existing legal framework.

A team of legal experts from RNE members, FTE, CER, EIM and CIT has compiled an overview of options how to legally support TTR and its pilot runs. This expert group continues to accompany TTR as it grows in maturity, and provides legal analysis for new and improved process items.
