Railway safety and connectivity with the UK – Council adopts Brexit contingency measures

The EU is ensuring continuity of train services between the EU (France and Ireland) and the United Kingdom in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal. The Council today adopted a regulation on a temporary extension of the validity of certain authorisations, certificates and licences that are needed to run the services. The aim of this extension is to allow the parties concerned to conclude the necessary agreements and take any other measures 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.
