Established in 2004 and based in Valenciennes (France), the European Railway Agency (ERA) was set up with a view to revitalising the rail sector and creating a Single European Railway Area (SERA) by eliminating regulatory and operational differences across EU rail systems. The 2013 Commission legislative proposals, known as the 'Fourth Railway Package', were adopted by the European Parliament in April 2016 after long negotiations. Among these proposals is a new regulation on ERA, renamed the EU Agency for Railways, which, with two modified directives, expands its powers.
