As a response to the proposed recast of regulation (EC) 1371/2007 on rail passengers’ rights and obligations, EPF addressed a letter to the Members of Parliament as well as to the members of TRAN and IMCO committee, to express our concerns.

The proposed force majeure clause in the proposed recast would impose disproportionately high costs and financial risks upon passengers. This would undermine consumer confidence in the fairness of the regulatory system. Independent evidence suggests that it does not appear to represent a significant cost to railway undertakings.
