ERA: The European Union Agency for Railways will be using InnoTrans 2018 to demonstrate the ‘one-stop-shop’ IT tool through which all applications for safety certificates, vehicle authorisations and ERTMS approvals will be submitted form June 2019.

Visitors will be able to test the tool and discuss how it will work.
