The ERA Regulation foresees that the Agency will charge for the services provided under the Interoperability Directive. The rules for fees and charges are laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/764.

It is worth noting that the vehicle authorisation procedure already exists in the EU and for which fees & charges are levied by NSAs. However, the approval of ERTMS track-side equipment tenders is a new procedure. Therefore, IMs will have to prepare for a new procedure and costs as regards to ERTMS track-side equipment.
