Railway safety and connectivity with the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit – Council agrees its position

The Council’s Permanent Representatives Committee today granted the Romanian presidency a mandate to negotiate with the European Parliament on a temporary extension of the validity of certain authorisations, certificates and licences to ensure continuity of train services between the EU (France and Ireland) and the United Kingdom without disruption in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a negotiated agreement. The aim of this extension is to allow bilateral agreements between an EU member state and the UK to be concluded and any other measures to be taken to avoid disruption, taking into account the status of the UK as a non-EU country. These measures are conditional on identical standards, requirements and procedures being applied to cross-border rail connectivity by the UK.
