The Acceptance, Approval and Certification (AAC-) procedures are characterized by high diversity in different European countries. Diverse actors are involved and different procedures and different roles are applied along the AAC-course in the field of urban systems, which are non-interoperable with other rail systems and very scarcely need for interconnectivity with another rail system (e.g. tram-train). The main objective of this work package is to develop a typical, optimized frame for the AAC procedure based on elementary activity modules and on an analysis of current AAC procedures over Europe.
Such typical optimized frame would offer relevant authorities a common reference over Europe and therefore facilitate the creation of new urban rail systems. In the following the main milestones are described in order to achieve this goal.
A typical optimized frame AAC-procedure can only be proposed based on an adequate analysis and synthesis process. The analysis phase of the WP consists of two steps: first the current AAC-procedures in different countries and cities of Europe will be reviewed. Secondly, in this survey the elementary activity steps will be identified. As a result a list of elementary activity modules will be provided. In the synthesis phase first a generic model of an AAC-procedure will be drafted based on the elementary activity modules. In a second step, based on the generic model, an optimized frame AAC-procedure will be proposed.
