Update of possible values of parameters, and Dear Authorisation Entities: The technical document with the ESC and RSC identifiers to be used, in accordance with CCS TSI Regulation (EU) 2019/776, has been published on the ERA website at: https://www.era.europa.eu/sites/default/files/activities/docs/era_td-011rec1028_esc-rsc_technical_document_en.pdf. Following its publication the value “None” for the following ERATV parameters is not valid anymore: - ETCS System Compatibility. - Radio Voice System Compatibility. - Radio Data System Compatibility. The previous “None” value may correspond to one of the three newly defined values: - “Not applicable”: ETCS or GSM-R is not installed or not authorised in the vehicle. - “ESC-EU-0” or “RSC-EU-0”: The on-board subsystem only have EC certificates, without any ESC or RSC checks. - “ESC-NP-CCS7.4a” or “RSC-NP-CCS7.4a“: The technical compatibility has been demonstrated according to a previous national procedure. There has been an automatic replacement of the current value “None” with the new value “Not applicable”. We would like to raise your attention to the fact that this change impacted all currently published types and the ones in draft in ERATV under the 4th Railway Package regime (Directive (EU) 2016/797). We kindly ask you to revise the impact on your currently published or draft types, to ensure that they correctly reflect the situation regarding these parameters. Special attention should be given to vehicle-types published or drafted after 16/01/2020. If an update of the published types would be needed, please submit a correction. Thank you.
