Foster Research Partners - Railways, the EU and You


In the European Union, all members of the railway community – and those organisations that represent them – are increasingly impacted by changes in European regulations or funding policy. These changes and influences are felt most keenly in the areas of procurement and type approval requirements for new vehicles and infrastructure.

As a result, more and more suppliers are choosing to play an active role in shaping EU regulations before they are published in the Official Journal. To do this, it is essential that those involved are well informed and up-to-date with the issues at stake, and understand the decision-making process. It is also vital that they bring influence to bear in good time by participating in appropriate working groups, together with the research and development teams part-funded by the European Commission.

Andrew Foster, as a Brussels resident for ten years, where he worked for a major multi-national player in this field, can help you shape EU transport initiatives in favour of rail by providing timely information about the issues at stake. Foster Research Partners know the precise points at which influence can be brought to bear in relation to, for example, product certification, environmental requirements and the harmonisation of telematics.
