What is it

The EuroSpec activity started in 2011. The main target of EuroSpec is the improvement of reliability and quality of trains using a common and standardised functional and non-functional specification and verification methods. The specification is based on the operational experience and existing requirements of several train operating companies.

These requirements are harmonised and can be used in tenders and replace individual company specific requirements. They are company, manufacturer and product neutral, describing functions of rolling stock and their verification. Thus they do not touch any competitive areas of the train operators and will not hamper innovation. They are also distributed and discussed with system and component manufacturers to improve quality and reliability of rolling stock.  EuroSpec helps to avoid reconstruction of proven and reliable products just driven by individual train operating companies’ requirements and thus supporting standardisation and manufacturing of rolling stock based on vehicle platforms in the European railway sector.
