Background

The meeting is to be dedicated exclusively to transport issues. The Ministers hold a debate on a proposal for a recast of the 2008 directive on the interoperability of the EU rail system, thereby starting its work on the “fourth railway package” recently published by the Commission. The recast, which is part of the technical pillar of the package, aims to accelerate the integration of the whole European rail network by removing existing administrative and technical barriers. The objective is also to guarantee a high level of safety while realising the full potential of the single market. Furthermore, the Council takes note of progress made on a proposed revision of the 2003 directive on the reporting of occurrences that could endanger aviation safety. The revision intends to improve the reporting system and to ensure efficient use of the data collected with a view to preventing future accidents. Finally, the Ministers hear a presentation by the Commission of its recent “Clean power for transport” initiative and hold an exchange of views. The goal of the initiative is to break the oil dependence of transport and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport by accelerating the market uptake of alternative fuels and vehicles adapted to their use. The initiative consists of a communication setting out a European alternative fuels strategy and a proposal for a directive on the deployment of a minimum infrastructure for alternative fuels throughout the EU. Over lunch, ministers discuss the issue of road safety.
