The European Commission decided to “refer Poland to the Court of Justice of the EU for failure to fully transpose European rules on rail safety,” read a statement by the commission.

In line with the 2004/49/EC EU directive, members countries, including Poland, should establish “an independent safety authority, an independent accident and incident investigation body, [and] define common principles for the management, regulation and supervision of railway safety,” the EC’s statement explained.

EC claims that Poland has failed to do so, although the time limit for the transposition was set to 30 April 2006 and thus the European Court of Justice will look into the Polish legislation. (tf/rg)
