ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG network compatibility check for rail vehicles

The vehicle licensing office defines and checks vehicle parameters and safety standards that are necessary for access to the ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG rail network (ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG network compatibility check for rail vehicles).

This means that a rail vehicle may only be used on the ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG rail network if it carries one of the interoperability codes (RIC *, RIV, TEN RIV, TEN G1, TEN GE), or has an ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG compatibility licence.

* Only in accordance with Article 21(12) of Directive 2008/57/EG

We are happy to advise you on acquiring ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG compatibility licences for your rail vehicles.
Our Rules and Standards 50.01.01("ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG Netzzustimmungsprüfung & Zustimmungserklärung")  and the licensing documents we provide will help you get quick and clear information on how to acquire an ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG network compatibility licence.

Alongside the ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG network compatibility vehicle check, we also offer the following services:

  • Our Vehicle database (German version) shows which vehicles (except for goods wagons) with a 12-digit European Vehicle Number are certified by ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG for use on our network.

  • Industrial siding licensing (Anschlussbahnbescheinigungen - AB-Bescheinigungen)
    • Information on industrial siding licensing is here (German versoin).
