New RNE PCS User Agreement

May 19, 2014

We would like to draw your attention to an essential aspect of our long, fruitful collaboration.

As per Monday, 19. May 2014, we would like to invite you to sign the new RNE PCS User Agreement template, which was prepared by the RNE Legal Matters Working Group, checked by a prestigious Austrian law firm and recently approved by the RNE General Assembly.

This year RNE is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Due to all the changes and developments that have taken place during those 10 years – in the system itself, the IT sector as a whole and in the railway sector – a revision of the PCS contract had become necessary. This was announced at the RNE PCS Day 2013 held on 20th November 2014 and at the RNE General Assembly held on 4th December 2013 in Vienna. Our partner organisation Forum Train Europe (FTE) was also informed that this revision was vitally important.

On the whole, feedback by the Infrastructure Managers, Allocation Bodies and Railway Undertakings concerned has been very positive. The new template is a standard agreement for the use of a software product whereby RNE is acting as a provider and copyright owner, and your company is a user and licence holder of the system.

You will find detailed information about the current PCS version on our website under http://pcs.rne.eu. You can also download the template here.

Please print out two paper copies, fill in the required data, get the copies signed by your duly empowered company representative/s and send them to the following address:

RailNetEurope
Oelzeltgasse 3/8
1030 Vienna
AUSTRIA


We will return your copy, signed by us, as soon as possible. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration.
