The European Railway Agency

13-07-2015

Established in 2004 and based in Valenciennes (France), the European Union Railway Agency (ERA) was set up with a view to revitalising the European rail sector and creating a single European railway area through the elimination of operational and regulatory differences across EU rail systems. The Fourth Railway Package, which is currently under consideration, includes a proposal for a new Regulation on ERA which would modify its structure and expand the scope of its activities.
